If you have already been to the Algarve, then you know how much this small southern region of Portugal has to offer, but for those of you who haven't enjoyed an Algarve holiday yet, this is the Algarve.
What makes the Algarve such a great place?
For the hundreds of thousands of holidaymakers from around the world that fly into Faro Airport or drive or sail from other parts of Europe each year, it's the promise of sun-
The Algarve, Portugal, is only a 3 hour flight (or less) from the United Kingdom, Ireland and many other parts of Europe and flights arrive to the region's sole international airport, Faro Airport (in central Algarve). Faro flights arrive daily throughout the year, with several arrivals and departures each day from airlines during the busiest summer months of July to September.

Which resort will you choose for your Algarve holiday?
Traditional houses in the village of Alcoutim, eastern Algarve, Portugal Measuring only 160km x 50km, the Algarve, Portugal, is without a doubt the perfect holiday destination for families, couples, independent travellers and backpackers, mixed groups and retired people...in fact, anyone who wants to enjoy a lovely chilled break! For culture and history, try Silves, Tavira, Lagos or Sagres and for quiet walks in beautiful countryside, visit Alte, Monchique, São Brás de Alportel, Alcoutim, Aljezur or the western atlantic coast of the Algarve. For independent travellers and backpackers, travel down to the furthest points in western Algarve because it’s the end with the cool culture where everyone’s welcome! (Just head to a bar on your first day and you’ll fit right in!) For older generations, if you want accessible beaches and be able to walk around with ease try the flatter eastern Algarve resorts, such as Monte Gordo and Vila Real de Santo António. This area of the Algarve is also a little warmer throughout the year and the sea is too because it is closer to the Mediterranean Sea.
Carvoeiro town beach and cliff top accommodation (western Algarve, Portugal)Every resort in the Algarve has its own unique character, offering totally different scenery, experiences, activities and gastronomic delights. Since the start of Algarve tourism (only really taking off back in the 1970s) some resorts have changed immensely, like Albufeira and Carvoeiro, and some areas have barely changed at all, such as Alte, Monchique and the Western Atlantic Coast. With central Algarve being the first place to ‘be hit’ by tourism there has been a mass of development, with hotels, tourism activities, bars, restaurants and shops popping up all over the place. However, areas such as the Western Atlantic Coast still hold on to their natural ‘ruggedness’ and there are still beaches where you won't find a beach bar or even a toilet!
Visit Portugal's Algarve on any budget!
One of the great things about a holiday in the Algarve is that it can be as cheap or as lavish as your budget will stretch to. There is a variety of Algarve Accommodation from campsites, rooms, guesthouses and hostels, to 5* hotels, luxury resorts and villas to rent. Restaurants, bars and cafes that are popular with Algarvian locals offer amazing value for money and a literal 'taste of Portugal' and at the other end of the scale there are fine dining establishments, including Michelin Star restaurants. In terms of things to do, at the top end there are spas, champagne cruises and yacht charters, but of course, the best things to do in the Algarve are free…the beaches, landscape and culture, and admission-
There's always something going on in the Algarve!
There's always a great range of Algarve Events throughout the year, so whenever you decide to book your holiday, you'll be sure to catch something going on! The Autódromo Internacional do Algarve (Algarve Motor Park), near Portimão, held it's first event in October 2008 with the World Superbike Championships and has a calendar of motorsports events. There are powerboat championships, car rallies, motocross events, sailing and golf championships. The Algarve also knows how to party and celebrates with festivals throughout the year. Mardi Gras (normally in February) sees carnivals across the region with the most spectacular taking place in Loulé; Liberation Day (April 25th) celebrates the end of a dictatorship in Portugal; medieval festivals are held in Silves, Lagos and Castro Marim; special Easter festivals take place in São Brás de Alportel and Loulé. There is a famous Sardine Festival in Portimão and Seafood Festival in Olhão and of course -
One of the finest golfing destinations in Europe, the Algarve is regarded today as an elite venue by top professionals.
The plans for the courses, mostly designed by internationally recognised golf-
The favourable climate with more than 300 days of sun per year, allows the golf season to be extended over several months, bringing players from all over the world to the Algarve.
The excellence on offer in the Algarve is only enriched by its great variety of trees, vegetation, its greens, tees and silence of its surrounds, only to be broken by the ‘crack’ of the perfect shot. Irresistible!
