Algarve Holidays

Holidays to the Algarve

Situated on Portugal’s southern coast, the Algarve is over 161 kilometres long and crammed with fantastic sandy beaches that slope gently into the sea. Former sleepy fishing villages have been transformed into popular holiday resorts, each offering a range of first class facilities.

Renowned for its superb hospitality and great weather – with more than 300 sunny days a year the Algarve has something for every holiday-maker.

For those seeking an active holiday, there are plenty of sporting opportunities including some of the best golf courses in Europe.

If you like exploring whilst on holiday, then head inland and discover the Algarve’s wonderful countryside. Silves, the old capital, is a delight and a visit to its majestic castle and cathedral is a must. For those who prefer holiday days spent relaxing on the beach, the Algarve will not disappoint. Small hidden coves and long stretches of sandy beaches, with an abundance of water sports on offer, stretch along the coast just waiting to be enjoyed. Perfect for all types of holiday-makers, especially families, the Algarve is hard to beat.
