Europe’s most famous secret

Based on the Portuguese coastline, the Algarve is blessed with the best scenery and luxurious beaches for the whole family to enjoy

The Algarve is the southernmost region in Portugal framed by a 200km coastline. The Algarve is best known for its promise of 300 days of sun, beautiful beaches, food, outdoor activities and award winning golf courses. However there is more to the Algarve than first meets the eye. Temperatures are high in summer, which is one reason why the Algarve is a top “sun and sea” destination and an authentic paradise for beachgoers. The region’s beaches, stretching for many kilometres along the coast, consist of fine, golden sand, and the sea is calm, with temperatures of 22º-28ºC in the summer.

All year round the region’s beautiful beaches, nature reserves, picturesque villages, golf courses, castles and fortresses can be enjoyed in all their splendour. Day or night, visitors to the region have everything that they need to enjoy the delights of the Algarve, whether for sun and sea, or for sport, relaxation, history, culture, nature, golf or local gastronomy.

Portugal 4th safest country in the world

Despite leaving the podium, Portugal continues to be one of the most peaceful countries in the world. Portugal comes in fourth place in this year’s Global Peace Index behind only Iceland, New Zealand and Denmark.

The Post Office barometer monitors the price of eight tourist items – comprising dinner for two with a bottle of wine, a range of soft and alcoholic drinks, suncream and insect repellent.
