Have you ever been to Algarve?

The Algarve region is a fantastic travel destination in southern Portugal. There you can find incredible beaches, great weather, hidden natural gems and amazing food.

Few places in Europe can compare with the beauty of this region, which, in the south of Portugal, has all the Latin heat for a very hot summer.

The Algarve way of life

Portugal is a small country, but with a vast culture and many different things to see. The Algarve is very different from Lisbon, the capital of the country. It’s like the time stops and all you want to do is have a good time!

The sunny Algarve coast attracts travelers from all over the world, for its weather, prices, safety and culture. Here you will have the best and most fresh fish of your life, in a mix of rural areas and luxurious restaurants.

The best cities to visit

The entire Algarve is a friendly place, and the locals are always very welcoming and helpful. Most of the cities in Algarve used to be small fishing villages that nowadays are major luxury destinations. Our favorite places to go in the Algarve are:

- Albufeira: centrally located, with most main attractions nearby and the best parties
- Lagos: A naturally beautiful city, with a hippy vibe and charming old town
- Tavira: A small town in east Algarve, with the warmest waters of the Atlantic ocean
- Portimão: A big city close enough to fantastic natural sights

What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"Profissionalismo, simpatia e dedicação! O passeio de barco conjugado com o passeio de kayak tornam a experiência única! Foram várias as caves visitadas :). A gruta de Benagil é linda, mas perde a sua beleza para o numero de pessoas que ali estão. Recomendo a experiência."
★★★★★

★★★★★
"I would definitely recommend the morning tour as it can get quite busy in there. We had nice guides and it was a lot of fun."
★★★★★
"I can really recommend doing the tour. The view of the caves and beaches surrounded by cliffs is amazing from the water. What we really liked about this guide, was that he takes less kayaks than the biggest provider, which makes it a lot more enjoyable and not such a mass processing as it is with others. We even got a private tour, since we were the only ones. Plus the guide was funny, so it was an overall great experience. "

★★★★★
"Passeio muito agradável. Guias simpáticos e profissionais, sempre a dar indicações de segurança e algumas curiosidades sobre os locais pelos quais estamos a passar. Para além da mais conhecida gruta de Benagil, conduzem-nos a outras grutas mais «escondidas» e muito interessantes! Todo o circuito tem vistas magníficas."
