Albufeira Holidays

Albufeira holidays take you to a large holiday resort on the coast of Portugal's southern Algarve region. The appealing mix of old town and new resort makes it one of the most popular holiday destinations on the Algarve.

Algarve sunshine resort

Like many Portuguese resorts, until the 1960s Albufeira was a thriving little fishing village, then tourism took over and the resort sprang to life. Part of its unwavering beauty though is the fact that the old village feel still exists in the old town today where narrow cobbled streets overflow with street cafes and quaint little shops.

Albufeira holidays appeal to a wide audience, families love its charm and golden beaches, couples love the romance and beauty of the town and the younger generation head to the bright lights and bouncing beats of 'The Strip' at the eastern end of the resort.

The Algarve beaches are legendary and Albufeira holidays are no exception. With over 20 to choose from, there are plenty of places to relax with tiny coves obscured by rocky headlands providing peace, tranquillity and seclusion. If you have an energy burst then the usual water sports are available on the larger stretches of sand including jet skis, parasailing and banana boating.

Places to Visit

Slide and Splash

Considered to be one of the biggest and best water parks in Europe, Slide and Splash has something for all ages from the Black Hole and Kamikaze for the daredevils to smaller slides and splash areas for the little ones.


Located in the town of Guia, a few kilometres from Albufeira, the whole family can enjoy a day out at Zoomarine with its water slides and pools, sea lions and sharks, parrots and birds of prey, but the star of the show, has to be the chance to swim with the dolphins!

4x4 Jeep Safari

Take an exhilarating jeep safari through the Algarve's stunning countryside. This all terrain trip will take you off the beaten track through rivers, over hills and past fig, orange and eucalyptus groves. Stop at a traditional village for lunch before heading back to base. Not one for the feint hearted as the terrain can get quite rough.

Book Albufeira holidays all year round

Whilst the hot sunny days are a definite attraction, winter holidays to Albufeira are also great value for money. Many people choose this time of year to take golf holidays to the Algarve as the days are slightly cooler and the sun less intense.
