Algarve is the southernmost region of Portugal where you get to experience the perfect blend of romance and adventure. This region is home to hundreds of beaches and coastal resort towns. Honeymoon couple’s all-time favorite is the luxurious spa experience; here the sea-water is the basis of spa treatments. Walk hand in hand with your loved one to buy souvenirs, handmade ceramics, tin-glazed earthenware and much more! Whilst getting back to your resort, stop by the cafés and restaurants to enjoy the rich cuisine of Algarve.
Algarve has many places to explore and you can start in the east, the wave of mass tourism that washed over much of the Algarve has not touched this region, leaving a tranquil landscape of whitewashed villages and groves of cork and olive trees. After visiting the east part of the Algarve you can make it over to the western side of Algarve surrenders to the power of the Atlantic – it is all about nature, about surfing and the sea, about bird watching or spotting dolphins, or walking cliff-top paths from one deserted sandy cove to another. Whichever part of the Algarve you choose, you will find friendly, welcoming people; excellent local wines – at superb prices – and delicious food, from the freshest of fish to regional, cured hams, packed with spices and delighted flavors.
When to go– For more privacy on the beaches, come outside school holidays. The best months are May, June or October, when the sun is hot and visitors few. High summer – July and August – can mean crowded facilities in the central Algarve, but head inland, past orange, olive and cork groves and storks nesting on telegraph poles and chimneys, to find a quiet rural paradise that has changed little over the centuries. In December and January, although it’s colder at night, there’s often warm sunshine in the middle of the day. The most likely times to encounter heavy rain are late October and November.
No matter what time of the year you decide to visit Algarve, you will be able to enjoy the beautiful endless sandy beaches, authentic dishes, and much more!
