A prime slice of Portugal
Portugal’s southernmost strip isn’t just about ribbons of golden sand and world-famous golf courses. It’s also got an edgy mix of modern, got-it-all resorts and traditional towns. Plus, families are more than catered for with a superb line-up of waterparks, theme parks, and restaurants where little ones are always welcome.
Albufeira – the best of both worlds
If having everything on your doorstep is a priority, try the Algarve’s largest holiday spot, Albufeira. It ticks off a 5-kilometre beach, restaurants galore, and nightlife as loud as you want it. On the other hand, you can also go local in its old cobbled town or walk along cliff-top paths in search of hidden bays.
If you prefer things a bit quieter, Sao Rafael is ideal. Its main beach has Blue Flag status and this modern resort is home to a clutch of beachfront bars and restaurants. To experience authentic Portugal, meanwhile, head for Olhos D’Agua – it’s a working fishing village with cobbled lanes and traditional waterside restaurants. The beach is a big hit with kids, with rock pools to explore and freshwater springs that bubble up through the sand.
