Algarve Beaches

With approximately 200km of coastline, the Algarve is home to some of the most idyllic beaches in the Mediterranean. Surrounded by golden cliffs, many Algarve beaches are recognised by the European Blue Flag, noted for their exquisite sandy shores, crystalline waters, wealth of local amenities and superior safety.

Perfect for sun-seekers, taking a dip in the Atlantic Ocean offers the perfect way to cool off in the height of the sun. Sweeping bays and small coves begging to be explored offer yet another reason why visiting any of southern Portugal’s beaches is a holiday prerequisite.

The epicentre of Algarve culture until 1242 when it was sacked by the Knights of Santiago, Silves castle is a must-visit for history buffs. Alternatively, why not have a day out at Algarve Seafaris.
