Beaches

The Algarve offers some magnificent beaches. The 200 Km coastline features many types of beach from small coves to long stretches of pristine sand. One of the best small beaches is at Praia De Albandeira in the central Algarve. It’s perfect for rest and relaxation with no water sports, but unfortunately, no sunbeds either. There is a small wooden hut selling cold drinks. At the other end of the scale, try Praia Do Ancao, which is more suitable for families.

Wine Tasting

Try something a little bit different with a trip to a vineyard. Portugal is famous for its’ Port production, but it also produces a range of excellent wines. Some vineyards run organised tours where you can see the full production process and then sample the end product for yourself.
