Why go to Albufeira

Albufeira, or the 'Gateway to the Algarve', is a popular destination for all types of visitors.

Albufeira is one of the best value destinations in Europe for beach holidays and offers plenty of entertainment.

Fisherman's Beach retains its traditional fishing village characteristics with plenty of fishing boats moored day and night. An early morning or evening visit to Fisherman's Beach is a great time to see the local fishermen unloading their catch. Praia da Oura is also a large sandy beach, with plenty of water sports available, such as parasailing, pedal boats and windsurfing.

The Praia de Tunel (Tunnel Beach) is accessed from the Old Town through a tunnel that is bored through the cliffs. Falesia Beach runs from Albufeira to Vilamoura with miles of golden sands. Praia dos Olhos d'Águ contains many rock pools and hidden coves and offers plenty of adventures for the younger members of the family.

Albufeira caters for all tastes in music, with its nightclubs, jazz bars and even Irish pubs. Nearby Sao Joao contains 'the strip' with plenty of bars, pubs and restaurants nearby. The Old Town in contains an abundance of street cafes and restaurants and many shops off its town square, selling locally made leather goods and gifts. The Old Town also retains its traditional winding cobbled streets and picturesque, single storey homes, perfect for exploring on foot.

The buildings surrounding the marina are modern builds, painted in a variety of bright pastel shades and there are dolphin sculptures dotted along the marina walkway. The marina also offers boat trips and diving excursions, ideal for a day away from the beaches.

Albufeira is only forty minutes from Faro (FAO) Airport and holidays here offer the chance to relax on a number of beaches that look out onto the Atlantic Ocean. Use TravelSupermarket's search tool to find cheap holidays to Albufeira.

*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.
