What to Eat

You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to eating in the Algarve. Due to its privileged location on the Atlantic coast it comes as no surprise that seafood tops the list. Grilled sardines served with a chunk of crusty bread, steamed clams with white wine and olive oil, elaborate caldereidas full of fish, shellfish and potatoes;this is just the tip of the iceberg. If seafood isn’t your thing you still have plenty of options available, hearty caldo verde or Frango piri-piri for example. All delicious when washed down with a refreshing glass of vinho verde.

Sights of the Algarve

The principal attractions in the Algarve are the beaches. Ruggedly beautiful cliffs plunging into the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic provide a magnificent backdrop to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. In fact there are over 150 beaches along the 200km coastline for you to enjoy, among the nicest are Praia da Marinha and Praia do Martinhal. For a pleasant day away from the beach the historic towns of Silves and Lagos are full of interesting architecture including Moorish castles.

Shopping in the Algarve

The best place to buy your groceries and get a feel of the local community is at one of the local markets. At these markets you can also find typical artisanal products of the Algarve such as beautiful ceramics and tiles. In Faro the Forum Algarve Shopping Centre has many shops selling jewellery, accessories, clothes and much more.

Algarve with Children

Children will absolutely love a holiday in the Algarve. Topping the list is of course the beach, coming a close second are the numerous water parks, of these Aqualand is the biggest with more than six slides, wave pool and toddler pool. A sailing trip is another way to keep the children amused and one they are sure to love is the Pirate Ship Adventure Cruise. Other options available include going to the zoo, outdoor sports and much more.

Going Out in the Algarve

Nightlife in the Algarve is absolutely fantastic. Chilled out lounge bars serving delicious cocktails, open air nightclubs playing the latest dance hits, Irish and English pubs, beach bars where you can enjoy a drink at sunset, the choice is endless. Things start heating up once the sun goes down and get even hotter after midnight, it is impossible not to have a great night out in the Algarve.
