Algarve Holidays – Golden beaches and glorious countryside
The Algarve has been a favourite with British visitors since tourism began in the 1960s, and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. Best known for its beaches and golf holidays, the Algarve has far more to offer than simply sun, sand and a stroll around the green.
The resorts along the coastline of central and western Algarve are family favourites, for the wide range of well-organised family entertainment, while to the east, where the waters are warmed by the Mediterranean, the flatter terrain and accessible beaches are favoured by older visitors. Lagos is where couples, groups and single go to party, while those looking for quiet and culture go inland, to the beautiful country towns of Silves and Monchique, where you will discover the history of Portugal and enjoy peaceful walks through its vast array of flora and fauna.
