Whether you’re looking for a quiet cove or a lively beach scene, you’re sure to find it here. As for the water sports, there are loads on offer.

History v thrills

Albufeira has plenty in the way of history and heritage. Pay a visit to Paderne Castle, a Moorish stronghold, or check out one of the pretty little churches, like Sant’Ana. If it’s action you’re after, take the kids to Zoomarine theme park, or try the thrill rides at Aqualand Algarve waterpark.

Nightlife for all tastes

Come evening, it’s all about the Strip, a neon stretch of bars and discos pumping out all-night classics. Here you’ll find karaoke, foam parties and big-name DJs. If you’re after something more family-friendly, you can stick to the Old Town, where the cobbled streets are lined with restaurants and cafes.
