Albufeira – The Algarves number one spot!
9th January, 2012
What is it about the Algarve
that we love so
much? What's that you say? You've never been? Oh dear, well that's something we're going to have to change, maybe not right away but we can at least help to wet your appetite a little in the meantime!
Located in the south of mainland Portugal
, the Algarve is the most popular tourist destination in the country and is home to many fantastic resorts that are frequented each year by many of us friendly Brits.
One of the most popular resorts in the region is Albufeira
and it's popular with good reason because whether you want beaches or culture, night clubs or golf clubs, Albufeia
offers all of these great things and many more attractions!
With over twenty beaches in close proximity, you will be spoilt for choice when choosing which beach you would like to spend the day on! With light golden sand, clear skies and beautiful waters, you will have everything you need (fantastically hot sun included) to get that naturally gorgeous tan you want, although make sure you have plenty of sun lotion to hand as the sun can easily catch you off guard and nobody wants to look like a lobster on their Albufeira holidays now do they!
As well as soaking up the rays, you can also soak up a bit of culture when visiting the old town. The architecture tells a story and yet sits so gracefully in it's surroundings that you will get a refreshing taste of Portugals cultured past and historical identity without having to open a single book!
As for the nightlife, located in the newer part of the old town is 'The Strip' where you will find everything you need for a great night out, including themed bars, brilliant clubs and of course the one thing us Brits like when travelling abroad, a good old British pub!
And once you've sobered up the morning after, why not treat yourself to a game of golf by visiting one of the twelve golf clubs in the area and get a game in before you head back down to the beach! (Definitely the place to go if you like your golfing holidays).
I hope we've managed to wet your appetite a little! and if so, make sure you keep posted as we will be bringing you more about our affordable package holidays to not only our resorts in the Algarve but the many other fantastic destinations worldwide!
