Albufeira is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the central Algarve. Renowned for its history, warm climate, good food, beautiful beaches and vibrant nightlife it pulls, in countless visitors each year from all over.
The Old Town of Albufeira is undoubtedly the city’s highlight. Be sure to explore its beautiful religious landmarks, such as the fantastic St. Sebastian Hermitage, the grand Sant’Ana Church and the Nossa Senhora da Conceição Church. Not far away you’ll find the Albufeira Marina, where you can embark on a boat tour to explore the coastal caves, such as Xorino; these served as a shelter for fugitive Moors during the Christian reconquest of Albufeira.
If you’d like to get out of the sun for the day, pay a visit to the Municipal Archaeological Museum and discover the Algarve’s amazing history. Alternatively, get inside history with a trip to the Castle of Paderne: a 12th-century fortification and one of the original castles to display the shield of the Portuguese national flag. If art is more your thing, then the Corte-Real Gallery is for you: it’s an old home-turned-gallery in Paderne, surrounded by a beautiful garden, that displays paintings and ceramics by international artists.
The Algarve is famous for its incredible beaches and azure waters, and Albufeira is no different. One of the most popular beaches in Albufeira is Sao Rafael Beach. It’s only small and can get crowded in the summer months, but for good reason; it’s blessed with fine sand and is surrounded by incredible limestone rock formations. It’s also close to some great bars, restaurants and Albufeira hotels.
Water sports are also available on most beaches: one top spot being Falesia Beach. Here you can go diving, try your hand at a little surfing and even go paragliding. The beach itself is pretty grand too, backed by majestic red cliffs – perfect for a little rest and relaxation, if that’s more your thing.
There are plenty of beaches to choose from in Albufeira, making it ideal for an old-fashioned beach holiday. In fact, it has twenty Blue Flag beaches, with the best-known being Salgados, Evaristo, Aveiros, Oura, Stª Eulália and Maria Luísa.
But it’s not just at the beaches where you can get wet and wild. Check out the Zoomarine in Guia: a water park dedicated to the conservation of marine life that offers entertainment for all the family. While you’re here, don’t forget to taste Guia’s typical spicy chicken or one of Albufeira’s many amazing seafood specialities, such as the seafood rice.
If you are looking for top nightlife then you’ll be wanting an Albufeira hotel close to Areias de São João, also known as 'The Strip', where you’ll find all the best bars and open-air nightclubs. This way you can party until the early hours and simply stumble back when you’ve had your fill.
If it’s retail therapy you’re looking for, stay in a hotel close to Algarve Shopping, an open-air shopping centre. Here you can shop for big brand names, as well as local souvenirs, or catch a film at its cinema.
Whether you want something affordable located near the town centre or luxury five star accommodation right on Falésia Beach, you’re sure to find the perfect Albufeira hotel for you with Expedia.
