Algarve... a land with bucket loads of sunshine, a family friendly place, with beautiful nature, sports facilities... a place that will make anybody wish to go back there again and again. So what makes a holiday in Algarve all that great? Well, picture this as a way to spend your day: a boat trip along the coast, some dolphin watching, maybe a jeep safari a bit later in the day and why not... some surfing, then relaxation and serenity at a local spa. And this all adds up to make for just one day's list of activities on your holiday in Algarve, and not just any day, but one filled with excitement and great times, one that you will never forget. Then there is diving and swimming, golden sand beaches, water that is just crystal clear, deep sea fishing, as well as sky diving, indoor sports like tennis, carting, and so on. But don't think that booking a holiday home in Algarve is all about the water and the beach, this area of Portugal also has beautiful cultural attractions, museums, art galleries, a rich history.
There's always something great and fun going on in Algarve, literally there are events and entertainment venues all year round, so whenever you decide to book a holiday home in Algarve as your next destination, you can be sure you'll find something going on! The Autódromo Internacional do Algarve near Portimão has a calendar of motor sports events. There are powerboat championships, as well as different car rallies, motocross, sailing, golf championships. Partying in Algarve is not to be underestimated either, there are festivals going on throughout the entire year. The Mardi Gras (in February) in Loulé is just great, then there is the Liberation Day (April 25th) as well as medieval festivals in Silves, Lagos and Castro Marim. Easter comes with its own festivals in São Brás de Alportel and Loulé, and if you are a fan of fish and seafood, you should try to catch the Sardine Festival in Portimão and Seafood Festival in Olhão too. Christmas and New Year in the Algarve are just a thrill, with New Year's Eve parties and fireworks. During the summer months, open-air concerts, beach parties, even jazz festivals will play the background for a good time.
Every resort in the Algarve has its own special character and depending on what your vacation interests are, you have numerous choices. Algarve is a perfect destination for families, youngsters, couples and retired people, for relaxation and partying, for exploring and resting. If you are set for a family holiday in Algarve this year, the best choice would probably be the area between Quarteira and Lagos in central and western Algarve. If you're in for some partying, you are single or a couple, with friends or even by yourself, try the area of Albufeira, Praia da Rocha and Lagos. Silves, Tavira, Lagos or Sagres are great for cultural experiences, and Alte, Aljezur, São Brás de Alportel, Alcoutim, Monchique, or the western Atlantic coast of the Algarve are the areas to be sought after when wishing for peace and tranquility, long walks in the rural areas, nature and relaxation. The eastern Algarve resorts are more accessible for older generations, the area itself is a little warmer as well, it is closer to the Mediterranean. So all in all, Algarve being a top destination for all ages is not an exaggeration in any way.
