Water Activities Galore
Algarve’s beaches are a wonderful place to work on your suntan. If you are looking for a more adventurous holiday, then there are plenty of opportunities for parasailing, windsurfing, water-skiing, sailing, paddle-boarding, kayaking and canoeing. Alternatively, make sure to consider a river cruise. The choice between an ocean adventure or a river adventure is up to you.
Walking Along The Scenic Cliffs
It is easy to see why hikers love walking on the cliffs. Hikers can choose to walk the 7.4 mile Carvoeiro to Benagil Walk stopping to see the Algar Seco Grotto and at Praia de Vale de Senteanes Beach to play in the water. Alternatively, consider the slightly longer Benagil to Nossa Senhora de Rocha stopping for a lovely lunch at a cafe. Make sure to bring your camera along as you will not believe the immense beauty unfolding before your eyes on either of these cliff hikes.
Horse lovers adore taking our shuttles from Faro so that they can ride horses on unspoilt beaches. On the other hand, consider treks along paths lined with thyme and rosemary. These treks are often a treat to all the senses because they often end with a delicious barbecue meal. Alternatively, do not overlook renting a car for a scenic trip around the Algarve’s historic cities.
History Comes Alive
If you love history, then coming to the Algarve should be near the top of your bucket list. Shortly after getting off flights to Faro airport head to Silves. You can still see some of the original walls of the castle and consider timing your trip allowing you to visit Feira Medieval de Silves as the Renaissance fair is wonderful. Many old castles located throughout the Algrave make wonderful place to visit. Make time to visit the maritime museums.
Anglers love visiting the Algarve for deep sea fishing. Many hotels in the Algarve offer charter fishing trips, but for a more authentic experience book passage on a small wooden vessel from one of the traditional fishing villages or for an unforgettable Algarve Portugal holiday try cliff fishing. If your luck runs out or the big one gets away, then head to a local restaurant for grilled fish.
There are many challenging golf courses in the Algarve. Some are resort style courses located near hotels in Algarve while others are easily accessible with our shuttles. Most courses were built after Henry Cotton opened his first course here in 1966. The varied course layouts means that golfers can enjoy playing many different courses while on holiday in the Algarve.
