Are you tired of the daily grind? Thinking about a holiday? Wanting to be anywhere else instead of sitting in front of the computer? Escape if only for a short time with these spectacular photos of the Algarve.
Albufeira, the Algarve’s largest resort town, is somewhat surprisingly also one of its most attractive. A seaside town with a picturesque old quarter and miles of sandy beaches, Albufeira’s quaint centre belies a vibrant nightlife and thoroughly modern new town. What with the added bonus of being under 45 minutes from the Algarve’s main Faro airport, Albufeira is often seen to be the ultimate holiday destination by families, couples and singles alike!
Slide & Splash, Aquashow and Aqualand were not the authors of the song “Barbie Girl”. They’re some of the largest waterparks in Europe, and all found in the sunny Algarve, Portugal. With over 300 days of sunshine a year in the Algarve, you might find that Slide and Splash, Aquashow and Aqualand provide a (literally) refreshing change from another day at the beach. In this comparison, we give the lowdown on the Algarve water parks.
Nature is on the side of Algarve holidays. Hidden in the most south-westerly point of Europe, the clear Mediterranean beaches attract flocks of visitors each year. Offering more than 300 days of sunshine a year, a variety of activities in a safe environment and above all a high quality of life; the Algarve is perhaps the best place to take a family in the world. You’ll find plenty here that’s entertaining for children, as well as stimulating and relaxing for adults (don’t forget that it’s your holiday too!).
