The area and getting around
Sculpted sea cliffs and idyllic beaches
Booking holiday rentals in the Algarve with a sea view places you in a region of southern Portugal that extends along a rugged coastline for 150 kilometres. On the eastern end, you will find Tavira while the region's westernmost tip ends at Cape Saint-Vincent. This stretch of coast is renowned for its rocky coves that are protected by towering sea cliffs, endless fine sand beaches and picturesque fishing villages that guarantee visitors an unforgettable experience. The Algarve is also the point where two of the world's major bodies of water converge. Its shores are washed by the waters of the Mediterranean Sea in the east and the Atlantic Ocean in the south. The area is also well-connected by road, rail and air. The main airport is located in the regional capital of Faro. This is the primary hub for arrivals to the Algarve. You can also move around the area by train, bus or even taxi. If you are keen on exploring some of the harder-to-reach villages, your best option is to hire a car. What is certain is that southern Portugal is an idyllic destination for sun and nature lovers whether you seek adventure or solitude.

The Algarve is also acclaimed for its golf courses. Several of them were designed by high-ranking pros like Severiano Ballesteros and Nick Faldo. This fact has led to the World Travel Awards designating the area as the Best European Golf Destination. Visit Sagres and sign up for windsurfing courses in a small harbour town with impressive sea cliffs and gorgeous beaches. This is the area where Prince Henry the Navigator set up his iconic nautical school in the 15th century.

Perhaps you would prefer to wander down narrow, cobblestone-paved streets that are lined with lush bougainvillaea bushes in the historic quarter of Tavira.

This party paradise is easily accessed when you book Algarve holiday villas in Albufeira.
