Algarve

Trip Planner Europe  /  Portugal  /  Algarve
Occupying the southernmost portion of Portugal's mainland, Algarve is wholeheartedly devoted to tourism and continuously ranks among Europe's top holiday destinations. Nearly 10 million annual visitors include Algarve on their itineraries, drawn mostly by the region's developed coastline, boasting nearly 200 km (125 mi) of impeccable beaches. Farther away from the water, the region offers an extensive network of hiking trails, ideal for active vacationers seeking a chance to explore a rugged southwestern corner of Europe once considered the very end of the world. If you need a few urban things to do on your vacation, head for the regional capital Faro, featuring a lively Old Town full of plazas, pedestrian lanes, and outdoor cafes. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Algarve and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
