Local Guide

The Algarve has something for everyone, if you are looking for some relaxing time in the sun then take advantage of the seemingly endless coastline and spend some time on one of the many gorgeous sandy beaches. If you prefer to take in the culture and history that the Algarve has to offer you only need to travel a few miles inland to explore some of the old fishing villages which although are popular with tourists have managed to keep alot of the old Portuguese charm.
The Algarve offers a lovely relaxed and welcoming family orientated culture with endless options for eating out and activities for all ages. Take a walk on the cliffs, or do a spot of sightseeing by sea on one of the many tour boats available, if you prefer to stay on land then hire a cycle and explore what the resorts have to offer.
There is a huge selection of activities including surfing, diving, snorkelling, tennis, horse riding and of course the Algarve is famous for some of the best golf courses in Europe. If you are feeling a little more adventurous then take some kite surfing lessons, test you skills on a wake board or hire a jet ski at one of the many beaches. The Algarve has lots to offer for the family with a number of attractions that will keep the children entertained for hours, visit the Zoomarine or make a splash at a choice of water parks...or if your looking for something a bit different take a trip on the Santa Bernarda Pirate ship in Portimao. Whether your looking for some sun and relaxation or a more action packed holiday the Algarve is the perfect place to spend your holiday.
