Garden of Portugal

Along Portugal's southern Algarve region sits Albufeira, a city boasting 20 beaches for visitors to choose from. This area ranges from rustic natural coastlines to pristine sand beaches and contains significant historical and archeological sites. When the sun is up, days are best spent walking along the scenic shorelines under rugged sea cliffs or exploring the old town, home to bright Moorish architecture, ancient fortress walls, and charming cobbled streets lined with restaurants, cafes, and shops. Though this district contains many side streets, the city's best nightlife can be found in São João. Find what you're looking for from your Albufeira holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Portugal holiday planner.

Where to stay in Albufeira

Renowned for its extensive beaches and rugged coastal landscape, Albufeira represents one of the nation's most popular destinations and offers a wide array of accommodations, both luxurious and more basic. Reserve a room in one of the city's upscale hotels in order to make use of pools, lounges, gardens, and amenities during your stay. Not only do they offer in-house luxuries, but generally these hotels place you within easy walking distance of the city's famed Praia dos Pescadores beach. While there aren't as many inexpensive options in town, staying at an inland bed and breakfast or a guesthouse in one of the smaller nearby towns can be both a relaxing experience and an affordable one.
