Albufeira is the largest, liveliest and most energetic of all of the resort towns that line southern Portugal’s beautiful Algarve coastline. Albufeira provides stunning beaches, a glorious climate, varied eating and a buzzing nightlife. There is so much to love about Albufeira, and this is why this once peaceful fishing village has been transformed into the Algarve’s most popular holiday destination.
Extending for 2km from the Old Town is a stretch of golden sands, and clear seawaters, which is always a hive of activity in the summer. The Praia dos Pescadores, is the most popular section of this beach and originally fishing boats were pulled on to the sands.

The Praia da Oura is to the east of Albufeira and is situated at the base of “the Strip”. This is another beautiful beach, with an assortment of beach activities, and a great place to recover after a big night out!

The closest golf courses to Albufeira are around 20 minutes away.

Heading East from the town, back towards Vilamoura and Faro is Pine Cliffs Resort. A luxury top end resort with its own 9 hole golf course which features one of the most famous holes on the Algarve – The Devils Parlour.
