Why go to Algarve

No photo filters needed here – the Algarve’s seas really are that startling shade of aquamarine and its beaches are even more spectacular than they look in the pictures. Those brochure-ready good looks have made the region’s glorious coastline one of the most sought-after destinations in southern Europe, but Algarve holidays are about more than just topping up that tan, splashing around in a balmy ocean and sipping sundowners on the sand.

Beaches made for bathing

Of course, the beaches play a huge part in drawing travellers to Portugal’s southernmost region.
