Things to do in the Algarve

Our top experiences you won’t want to miss on your holiday.

The Algarve has long been a favourite destination for family fun holidays and couples seeking a sunshine filled break, and it’s not difficult to see why holidaymakers flock back every year. There are so many things to do and see in this pretty region in the south of Portugal, that you simply have to come back to fit it all in.

A great way to take advantage of such picturesque surroundings is by taking a boat trip along the coast, there are series of excursions available to match your needs from cruising days out to deep sea fishing and these run from most resorts including Alvor, Albufeira and Vilamoura.

But for those of you who are happier staying on land, here some other ideas on how to make the most of your holiday in the Algarve.
