With year-round sunshine, breathtaking beaches, abundant seafood and a laid-back atmosphere, the Algarve is the perfect destination, no matter the season. Admire its steep cliffs that rise above the ocean, explore its hidden caves by boat, relish in its golden sandy beaches and visit its century-old villages.


Algarve Your Way

Take a guided boat tour to Deserta Island, where the only building is the Estaminé Restaurant. Sink your feet into a stretch of white sand eleven kilometres long, and enjoy the luxury of having a Portuguese oasis all to yourselves. Take a leisurely stroll through the impossibly romantic cobbled streets of Cidade Velha—Faro’s old town—to the orange-tree-lined Largo da Sé, where the câmara municipal (town hall), Paço Episcopal (Bishop’s Palace) and the ancient Sé (cathedral) create a charming tableau of a bygone Portugal.
Family Vacations
Explore the beautiful Ria Formosa lagoon and its wildlife with the whole family on a kayak tour of its sandy islands separated by natural inlets and channels. A migratory corridor, the area contains some of the last remaining nesting grounds in Europe for several species of birds. Cool off at the Aquashow Water Park, just outside of Faro. Swim with sea lions, ride the biggest water roller coaster in Europe, or check out three different animal shows (reptiles, parrots and birds of prey), after which you can hold the featured creatures and take photos with them.
Group Travel
Make the most of your vacation at the Algarve Luxury Bootcamp, where a holistic approach to improving fitness, lifestyle and emotional health in five-star surroundings can give you and your friends a new lease on life. Experience Faro underwater with Hidroespaço, a diving outfit that takes you exploring through shipwrecks and reefs. It accommodates novices and experienced divers, so your whole group can enjoy the experience.
