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!

"We went on the boat trip with our daughter (8years) & baby (8months). The crew allowed us to take the car seat on the boat which turned out to be really handy. The tour was 2,5 hours which gave us plenty of time watching the dolphins and visiting the caves. The crew was really entertaining and shared a lot of knowledge about the surrounding area. The small size and fast speed of the boat was one of the highlights as well!! Thank you for an amazing start of our vacation!! Absolutely recommended!!"
