Algarve – region of surf, sun and scenic beauty

While the Algarve is sometimes humorously branded as a favourite for those sporting a touch of grey, it’s a region that defies such narrow pigeonholing. Sure, it’s a paradise for those seeking a tranquil escape, with its idyllic beaches and world-class golf courses. But there’s so much more to this vibrant corner of Portugal. The Algarve pulses with youthful vigour, evident in the lively surf scene at Sagres, the bustling streets of Faro and the cultural richness of Tavira. Its appeal transcends age, offering something for everyone – from historic explorations in Silves to vibrant nightlife in Albufeira. The Algarve is a dynamic destination with a charm that resonates with all who wander its picturesque landscapes.
