The southern coastal region is a popular tourist centre, being chosen as a holiday destination both by foreigners and the Portuguese themselves.

A warm climate throughout the year, a coastline of splendid beaches bathed by the Atlantic and all types of accommodation, nightlife and sports make this a perfect location for the family. But you can still avoid the crowds and visit picturesque fishing villages or the ranges of hills inland, with their rural way of living and wild vegetation.

For those who seek seaside holidays, pristine beaches, cleanest air and water, unspoilt natural environment & warm temperatures, the Algarve and specially, the Eastern Algarve, it is the dream destination.
Or visit busy fishing market towns like Olhão and the pretty quaint village of Tavira.

Most towns and villages still bear the legacy of five centuries of Arab rule, visible in their narrow streets and the houses' styles, most of which present whitewashed chimneys with different shapes and geometric designs.

Although most people visit the Algarve in the summer, it is also very popular during the winter season because of its mild climate (almost 320 days a year) and ‘out of season’ cheap accommodation.

With a terrific nightlife, the Algarve gives you more than 70 discos, bars and huge parties that lure people from all around the country.
