Enter the Algarve

Holidays in Faro and the Algarve present many contrasts. The Algarve’s capital boasts history and culture, while the remarkable coastline surrounding it will truly take your breath away.

It’s easy to combine a city break in Faro, Albufeira or Portimão with an unforgettable beach break along the Algarve coast. When you picture your perfect holiday, sun-drenched golden sands, rugged coastline and charming whitewashed towns probably spring to mind. But this beautiful region has plenty more to offer. Wander around the pedestrianised lanes of Faro’s historic old town - the preserved medieval quarter boasts museums and stunning churches. Visit the elegant Lagos, where spectacular panoramas of the Atlantic excite the adventurer in you. Or head over to Sagres in the far west, to surf the last beaches of Europe. This region is so diverse there is something for everyone.
