Albufeira

Albufeira is a quaint coastal town where you’ll find some of the most beautiful and sunny beaches in Portugal. Cool off by swimming in the ocean or enjoy local dishes in a restaurant right on the beach. Of course, there’s more than just sea and sand. Wander the cobbled streets of the old city and visit the ruins of Paderne Castle. Go shopping for souvenirs in the city centre before spending your evenings in one of the many bars on the Strip.

Albufeira’s history spans back as far as the time of the Romans. In 1755 the city was largely destroyed by an earthquake, and while a lot of its classic architecture has been damaged over the years, by this and other occurrences, there are a still signs of its Roman past everywhere. Today, this ancient fishing village is one of the most prosperous places in the Algarve.

Albufeira holidays are world-famous for its spectacular beaches. Just a short walk from the centre you will find the two largest and most popular beaches, Praia dos Pescadores and Praia do Túnel. If you’d rather escape the crowds, then head to one of the more secluded beaches such as Praia de Gale to the west. When it's lunchtime, simply follow the smell of barbecued fish that wafts down to the beach from the nearby restaurants.

Head over to the marina to see the famous multicoloured apartments overlooking the water, then find yourself a bar or cafe and enjoy a glass of local sparkling rose while watching the boats sail by. Or, better yet, get yourself a boat and get out on the water. With several tour operators, it’s easy to take a fishing trip or cruise out along the coast.

Albufeira is located just 36 kilometres from the capital, Faro. It’s easy to explore the place on foot and has excellent connections to the nearby airport, so no need to rent a car. You’ll find the weather is sunny throughout the year, like the rest of the Algarve. It’s no wonder Albufeira is such a popular destination.

Portugal is a great location for a bit of sun, sea and sand. If you like beach holidays in Albufeira then you're sure to love our all inclusive holidays to Albufeiracheap beach holidays to Madeira or our Algarve beach holidays. Book with Expedia and find out why.
