Why go to Albufeira

With no less than 300 days of sunshine, miles of sandy beaches and a boisterous night scene, it’s no wonder Albufeira is one of the Algarve's most-visited resorts. It’s the perfect choice for a fuss-free, fly-and-flop kind of a holiday, whether you’re travelling as a family, a couple or with a group of friends.

You guessed it – the biggest draw to Albufeira is its gorgeous beaches. There’s a good few to choose from but families tend to flock to the popular Praia dos Pescadores (Fisherman's Beach), which is close to the old town. It has everything, from a range of watersports – including banana boat rides and parasailing – to a healthy mix of restaurants.

For couples, the less touristy beaches tend to be a big draw. One of the best is Praia de São Rafael, a few of miles west of the old town. Here you’ll find a quieter, rugged cove surrounded by rock formations. With lovely views, it makes for a romantic backdrop.

Albufeira isn’t just about sun, sea and sand though, and there’s a surprisingly traditional side to the resort. The city’s old town, with its winding narrow lanes, whitewashed chapels and a tree-lined square dotted with cafés and restaurants, contrasts well with the tourist-centric coastline.

Likewise, if you’re keen to spend some of your time on cultural and historical excursions, Albufeira has its fair share of attractions. It’s home to a handful of museums and art galleries, as well as nearby sites like the Roman ruins of Cerro da Vila.

The resort is also famous for its nightlife and The Strip is Albufeira's party district (especially popular with young travellers). Located east of the old town, The Strip, officially called Avenida Sá Carneiro, is crammed with neon-lit cocktail bars, themed karaoke clubs and late-night discos to satisfy all tastes in music.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
