Have you ever been to Albufeira?

Albufeira is a great place to live and to spend your holidays. Its location is in the center of the Algarve, allowing for an easy and quick travel to any other area in the south.

If you like the beach and the sun, this is the place to be. Albufeira is known for its many beautiful beaches and nightlife.

In summer, Albufeira is the main tourist city in the Algarve where many Portuguese and foreigners spend their holidays. Beach, sun, Mediterranean food and a cool drink to help when it's hotter… yes, it's paradise!

Here there are also several hotels of the most reputable, a mall for those who like shopping and can't live without them, and a water park that combines the fastest and most violent attractions for the most courageous and true fans of adrenaline, with others more calm for those who prefer to relax! And there is also space for animal life in this park!

But don't you think that it's only in the summer that Albufeira is fantastic! Throughout the year the cold is something that rarely appears, and the temperatures do not have drastic drops in the winter months.

★★★★★
"Me and my sister booked the ‘try scuba diving’ course. We had a short session on safety then did a test session in a pool to make sure we could work the equipment and make us feel comfortable doing so. Straight away both of us felt safe with the instructors Aderio and Raul. We went out on the boat and we were able to dive to 12ft. Aderio made sure both me and my sister were ok during the dive and was able to point out fish, a crab the size of your head, and much more. We would 100% use them again if we come back to Portugal. Because of this experience we both want to dive again, we recommend giving it a try. Super friendly and professional service, we enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you so much for making this an experience we won’t forget."

"We booked a half day tour from Paderne and we were not disappointed. We have been coming here for over 10 years and wish we had done it sooner. Our guide Nuno was fantastic, full of lots of interesting facts that we had no idea about and was lovely to learn a little about the culture and history of the Algarve. We had our 7 year old with us who never became bored because Nuno made sure to add in lots of fun along the way. We collected lots of things for a school project and had an amazing time off-roading up in the mountains. Our little monster said it was 'the best day ever' so if that is not a recommendation I don't know what is! ;) Thanks Nuno for a fabulous morning, the best adventure and lots of laughs! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :)"
