Areias Sao Joao Holidays

Areias Sao Joao Holidays – The best of British combined with Algarve sun

If you are looking for a holiday that combines lazy hours spent lounging on the beach and a vibrant nightlife, then Areias Sao Joao is the place for you. If you love the idea of a searing summer sun but are a bit nervous about getting your tongue around the Portuguese language, (which, curiously, sounds almost Russian), there are plenty of English-run bars, clubs and restaurants on Albufeira’s famous ‘Strip’, only a short walk away from Areias Sao Joao.

This is mainly a tourist area, but you can discover the original Portugal by taking a walk through the Old Town, with its cobbled streets and architecture reminiscent of its Arabe heritage. The marina is said to have some of the best seafood and fish restaurants in the Algarve, and it is also where you can join dolphin watching cruise or a day trip along the coast that will give opportunities to stop off at secluded beaches and explore the sea caves by dinghy. If you are feeling really affluent, you can charter a yacht and skipper for the day and try some ocean fishing.
