The Algarve offers something for everyone - from fabulous golf resorts and superb diving sites to the plethora of award winning beaches and pretty coves that form the coastline of this beautiful part of the world. And, when it comes to choosing a place to stay, you will find yourself truly spoilt for choice.

Albufeira is one of the main tourist destinations on The Algarve, and it is almost like two resorts in one. The new town is well supplied with bars and nightclubs, while in contrast the gorgeous old town is packed with traditional cobbled streets and squares, open air markets and charming al fresco eateries.

A short distance from Albufeira is the lovely fishing village of Olhos d’Agua, that boasts a number of good quality traditional restaurants that are dotted among the cobbled walkways. The beach here has a number of rock pool ideal for smaller children.

With its charming winding streets, clear lagoon and picturesque arbour, Alvor is a quintessentially Portuguese town that positively exudes charm.

It is home to some of the finest restaurants in Portugal too, plus plenty of friendly bars. Its beaches are all you could hope for, sheltered and very clean.

Olhos D’Agua is located in the heart of central Algarve. This location has a wonderfully laid back atmosphere, and is still a working fishing village. There are plenty of places to eat and drink along the main street, and a small but perfectly formed beach at the foot of the hill.

Lagos is a lovely town, located in the heart of the Barlavento. Excellent surfing and beaches tends to attract young outdoorsy types, but the ancient architecture of the old town is a siren call to visitors looking for an authentic Portuguese experience. The town is also well served with restaurants, bars and shops.

 Albufeira is probably the best known area of the Algarve. This delightful old town is packed full of quirky boutiques and pavement cafes, and there is also a more modern strip which really comes to life as the sun goes down. Beach lovers will find themselves in heaven when they discover the huge 30-kilometre coastline that is a mixture of beautiful long beaches and charming little bays.

Visit Vilamoura and you will find an affluent destination based round the impressive marina. Cool bars sit alongside restaurant serving authentic Portuguese cuisine, set against the backdrop of some wonderful Roman ruins.
