Albufeira Holidays

A buzzing Algarve town

With some of the world’s best beaches, great nightlife and fun activities to boot, Albufeira holidays knock the competition out of the park. Once a sleepy fishing village, this thriving coastal town at the heart of Portugal’s Algarve coast is now one of Europe’s most popular destinations, and it’s easy to see why.

First and foremost, there are brilliant beaches: a range of golden, sandy sweeps that come in all shapes and sizes. On the doorstep are those with shallow waters for paddling, while Praia da Falésia – a 20-minute drive away – is more of a surfers’ haven.

Another draw, particularly during summer, is the lively nightlife, with the neon-lit venues of ‘The Strip’ providing clubbers with plenty of opportunities to party. There’s also a peaceful side to this resort, though, and you’ll find ancient town walls and gorgeous views. So whether you fancy dancing until dawn or just unwinding on the beach, holidays to Albufeira are a winning choice.

Your Albufeira questions, answered

Albufeira’s legendary nightlife makes it a popular spot for groups and couples. Away from the main strip, though, it does have a quieter side, so it’s also suitable for families.
Despite the modern vibe, Albufeira has retained some of its old charms – ancient castle walls fringe the town, and there are picturesque churches and fascinating museums to explore.
Fresh fish and hearty, barbecue-style grilled chicken and meat are the local staples, but the town’s restaurants, bars and cafés offer cuisine to suit every type of diner.
