Albufeira: Southern Portugal’s popular sunny destination
Those looking to book a holiday apartment in Albufeira will find that it’s a destination that offers plenty by way of relaxation, fun, and all-round good times. The biggest draw of the region is its extensive coastline, where you’ll find some of Europe’s most stunning beaches. These range from large, wide sandy beaches to small, rocky coves. Take a stroll along the coast and, unless it’s the height of summer, you might just snag a beach all to yourself.
