Albufeira Holidays - Algarve Sunshine Resort
Albufeira, like many of the resort towns on Portugal's Algarve coast, has grown from a small fishing village to establish itself as one of the region's largest and most popular holiday resorts. The size of the town and the diversity of the amenities mean that Albufeira holidays appeal to a hugely varied clientele. Albufeira Hotels are geared toward a range of budgets and maintain high standards. There is plenty of excitement among the thriving nightlife of the eastern part of town, known as "The Strip", where the bars and restaurants create the buzz of a party atmosphere throughout the night.
Albufeira holidays attract not only a sun-seeking younger crowd but also families and retired couples, all of which find something to appeal to them in the charm of Albufeira. villas and self-catering apartments are widespread, and while some are further from the coast than others, there is plenty of fine golden sand to settle down with a good book or simply soak up the sun. For the more adventurous there are a number of historically interesting towns and villages in the vicinity and some very pleasant areas of natural greenery just a little further inland, where the sight of Almond and fig trees and citrus groves accompany the quaint little villages nearby.
