Activities in Algarve
Algarve is undoubtedly the main holiday destination for the Portuguese families and one of the most prestigious leisure centres in Europe.
In spite of the pressure exerted by the tourism boom on the coastal region from the 60`s onwards, the best beaches in the Europe are still located here, in a 150km shore: cliffy ones from Albufeira to Sagres (Barlavento) and dunes and sands as far as the eye can reach on the opposite direction (Sotavento).
Warm seawaters, a mild climate with almost all-year-round sunny days and low temperature ranges give the region unmatched conditions to be one of the most disputed holiday resorts in the Mediterranean basin.
Furthermore, there is a variety of products that certify Algarve`s excellence from golfing to nautical and sports activities as well as the history of the region which is linked to the Portuguese Discoveries mainly because of Henry, the Navigator.
But part of Algarve identity is its diversified inland with towns and villages where ancestral traditions are still alive and constitute an additional tourist offer.
Algarve is still a particularly beautiful, tranquil and alluring region.
