For a 2020 holiday that’s got gorgeous beaches, party towns, rustic villages and so much more, it has to be the Algarve. Truly a holiday destination that offers something for everyone, this stunning stretch of Portuguese coastline is a playground for all ages to enjoy. Whether you’re looking for superb surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving or seeking out the rural charm that can be found in the Algarves historic towns and villages, you’ll find all that and more in the region. With beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, the Serra de Monchique mountain range is a wildlife wilderness that hikers of all abilities can enjoy. The Algarve’s many marinas are home to beautiful yachts, charming fishing boats and skippers ready to take eager visitors out on boat trips. The region’s famous golf courses see golfers flock to the region for some of the best 18 holes of gameplay in the world and the Algarves infamous 19th hole hospitality.

Visit the Algarve’s capital of Faro for its excellent mix of modern metropolitan cityscape alongside the quirky charm of the cobbled streets of the old town. With artisans creating crafts in their workshops, independent cafes and an excellent museum, it’s a must on a visit to the city. A sightseeing road trip may be the best way to explore the Algarve.

Taking a holiday in the Algarve rewards you with so many things to see and do. Explore the historic Moorish castle in Silves, surf the swells in Zavial or amble through the cobbled streets of Tavira’s old town. Each and every coastal spot, inland rustic village or cosmopolitan town has something different to offer. The upmarket coastal resort of Vilamoura is home to the expansive harbour, giving shelter to some seriously swish yachts. As well as the championship golf courses, there are designer boutiques and first class restaurants to enjoy on the esplanade. Albufeira is probably the Algarve’s most famous and popular destination and it’s easy to see why when you see its beaches. With some of the best shores in the Algarve and excellent leisure facilities, Albufeira draws in the crowds for a reason. Serra de Monchique’s craggy mountain range is a haven for hikers and visitors looking for a change of landscape. Nature trails take you up the mountain slopes, through shady woodland glades and across wildflower meadows.
