The best of nature
The diversity of nature is certainly one of the greatest strengths of the Algarve.
It is so easy to move between differing environments, each with a range of nuances on a similar theme of natural beauty. From the coast up to the hills, there is a wide range of landscapes to explore, each of them special in their own way.
From the open sandy beaches leading up to sudden cliffs, the vivid greens contrast with the deep browns of the Barrocal plains, opening up the doors onto another kind of Algarve, covered in orange, fig, carob and almond trees.
This is where the walking takes on a more challenging nature. We recommend that you take to these landscapes with their differing geological characteristics, in order to enjoy the calm of these hills with your friends and family.
Sport, action and adventure
In a region with such an impressive expanse of coastline, sea sports are a natural highlight.
The levels of underwater visibility along the Algarve coastline are very high and therefore provide ideal diving conditions.
However, there is much more on offer in terms of water sports.
There are beaches in Vila do Bispo and Lagos, providing all the equipment needed for surfing and body boarding, whilst at Ferragudo, Albufeira, Vilamoura and Quinta do Lago there is everything you need for windsurfing, water-skiing and jet-skiing.
In order to discover this natural sanctuary, where Moorish influences are such an important part of its history, we can recommend nothing better than to set off in exploration of its different trails and paths.
Culture and Tradition
From the very earliest periods of history, the Algarve has been the chosen place of settlement for different peoples, resulting in many distinct and fine historical buildings that are the top priority for all those wishing to discover more about our great cultural heritage.
