The Algarve is the southernmost region in Portugal framed by a 200km coastline. It is known for its promise of more than 300 days of sun per year, award winning beaches, authentic cuisine and a range of outdoor activities that attracts thrill seekers and nature lovers alike.
For keen golfers, the region has a plethora of award winning courses.
However there is more to the Algarve than first meets the eye. The Algarve is a region of hidden cultural delights; small, simple restaurants pull visitors back time and time again while Michelin starred restaurants attract a globetrotting international clientele.
The sea is integral to the Algarvian way of life, one that is closely bound to nature. Inland, old villages preserve a life that is historic and rich in culture, and lived in harmony with the seasons. In villages of small cobbled streets, you will find whitewashed houses and small local cafes serving bica (espresso), while sardines are grilled openly on the streets, as they have done for years gone by.
All year round the region’s beautiful beaches, nature reserves, picturesque villages, golf courses, castles and fortresses can be enjoyed in all their splendour.
Day or night, visitors to the region have everything that they need to enjoy the delights of the Algarve, whether for sun and sea, or for sport, relaxation, history, culture, nature, golf or local gastronomy.
