The charming old town is brimming with sidewalk cafés, al fresco eateries, boutiques, white-washed houses and churches, while the newer resort is bordered by a bustling boulevard that comes to life after nightfall. The picture is framed by 30-kilometer stretch of pristine beaches and coves.
Albufeira is renowned for its beaches, which are sheltered by cliffs and rocks that stand out for its diverse palette of colours. Its vast coastline has at least 25 beaches with beautiful sand and turquoise water. Albufeira’s claim to fame is its beaches, which are unique and utterly enchanting in their own ways.
The old town is home to Praia dos Pescadores, a family-friendly beach that is ideal for swimming and offers plenty of dining options. Praia d'Oura, situated towards the end of the strip, is a five-kilometre, Blue Flag-awarded beach popular among water sports enthusiasts. Praia do Falesia is located farther east lined by green pines and the countless reddish colours of the surrounding cliffs.
Along the coast of Albufeira you are invited to have fun in the sea with water sports, including sailing, water-skiing, windsurfing, and scuba diving. Likewise, golfers are in luck! Here the golf courses run almost to the water's edge, so that even when plotting your next pit, you can't help but be reminded of the soft golden sand that awaits sun-seekers and holidaymakers. Last but not least, foodies will enjoy a lip-smacking culinary scene that stands out for its fresh fish and shellfish that fishermen catch daily.
