Sunny Relaxation with a Holiday Apartment in Albufeira

Albufeira is a small city located in the Algarve region of Southern Portugal, best known for its agreeable year-round climate, sandy beaches, and plentiful bars and restaurants. While a holiday apartment in Albufeira is suitable for anyone, the destination is especially popular with young families and couples, who can enjoy long afternoons on a sunny beach and warm evenings outside. It’s an area that affords visitors a “classic summer holiday,” with ice-creams, watersports, golf, and sea-swimming all part of the fun.

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. For the most part, however, the beaches fall into the classic European getaway category: wide, spacious, with a stunning view of the water, and providing the opportunity for a pleasantly warm dip. Holidaymakers spending a week or more at their holiday apartment in Albufeira will find there’s much enjoyment to be had in exploring the coastline.

Why book a holiday home in Albufeira?

A holiday home in Albufeira gives families and couples the chance to enjoy all that’s great about a trip to this corner of the world. Because of the relatively small size of the city, day trips to the beach and other excursions can be arranged without much difficulty. You won’t necessarily need to leave your rental, however, to enjoy the magic of Albufeira. With an authentic and private holiday home, you’ll be able to spend long days soaking up the sun or cooling off in your very own pool. In the evening, you’ll be able to sit under the setting sun - and into the warm night - in your private garden, playing cards, talking, and enjoying being together in such a beautiful destination.

What to do in Albufeira?

There’s a reason why Albufeira is such a popular option for families and couples: it’s a guaranteed good time. When the weather is fine, as it is year round in the Algarve (it receives 300 days of sunshine), holidaymakers can simply pack up their supplies and take a trip to one of the many stunning beaches that line the coast. These beaches, the region’s biggest draw, are noted for the cleanliness and quality of the sand and water. When you’re not enjoying the beaches, you’ll be taking in the sunshine and the local delicacies in one of the bars and restaurants on the seafront. For a more active day, take a trip to the nearby water park or play a round of golf at the internationally acclaimed golf courses.

What to eat in Albufeira?

As you might expect from an old fishing village, there’s plenty of delicious meals to be enjoyed in Albufeira. In most places you go, you’ll find fresh fish and seafood on the menu. The area is particularly noted for the quality of its codfish, prawns, lobster, and crab. It’s not all food from the sea, however; the chicken Piri-Piri is a modern favourite, and you’ll find plenty of high-grade restaurants offering delicious steak, too. Not that you necessarily need to sit in a restaurant to enjoy a delicious meal. One of the joys of staying in a holiday apartment Albufeira is that you’re able to buy your own fresh fish and local ingredients, prepare them yourself, and enjoy them on your balcony.

In Lagos, you’ll be able to wander the old streets and get a taste of the region’s traditional architecture.

In Portimão, you’ll find a large concentration of shops and bars, as well as Praia da Rocha, one of the Algarve’s most popular and beautiful beaches. For a quieter experience, head over to Carvoeiro, where you’ll find more beaches and a touch of the area’s history in the Shrine of Nossa Senhora da Encarnação, the ruins of a once-great ancient fort.

How to get to Albufeira?

The Algarve’s reputation as one of the UK’s most popular sunny destinations means there are many flights from all across the UK.

If hiring a car isn’t an option, then there are buses that connect Faro airport to the major cities and towns of the Algarve, which don’t take long.

When to travel to Albufeira?
