Make your Algarve holiday All Inclusive for the best of Portugal's sun
The southern coast of Portugal known as the Algarve is one of the most popular Mediterranean holiday destinations. A fantastic mix of sunny beaches and grand days out make it a destination worth experiencing, helped by the fact it’s just two hours and 40 minutes’ direct flight from the UK.
With such a superb holiday just hours away, booking All Inclusive makes your break hassle-free. Transfer, food, drink and even discounted access to the region’s top golf courses often fall into your All Inclusive package, depending on your booking.
Bright and friendly Alvor is a popular place to stay due to its proximity to golf courses, although the beach helps too. Stays at Armacao De Pera liven up the small town feel of this beachside community with entertainment and games at your resort and the town itself close at hand. It’s also worth checking if the All Inclusive deal of your choice factors in free or discounted travel to Albufeira, the party capital of the Algarve.
The entire Algarve boasts some of the best Portuguese shores around, so great beaches are never far away. If you’re determined to see the very best beaches during your stay, make a beeline for Praia da Rocha, tucked in a crescent bay close to Alvor. Flanked by swaying trees and little shacks happy to serve you drinks and snacks, you can while away your day by the coast. To Alvor’s east, a more secluded beach can be experienced at Praia Tres Irmaos, which is scenic yet close to the action.
One of the most well known of the Algarve’s beaches is Gale Beach, Always bustling in the summer, it’s a family-friendly place with restaurants nearby and rock pools for less confident little paddlers. Closer to both Alvor and Praia da Rocha is Praia do Vau, a popular beach known for its exploration potential come low tide. You can walk among the rocks and coves to neighbouring Praia do Alemao, a broader stretch of beach bathed in sun.
What's included in your holiday
An All Inclusive holiday frees up so much of your time from organising the little details. Generally, your meals at the hotel are included, often in a buffet where you can pick your favourites. Similarly, most All Inclusive deals give you free transfers from the airport to your hotel, and plenty of activities once you’re there, such as tennis or games room access. Discounts on regional Algarve attractions like golf courses or funfairs might also apply, so read the hotel information before you fly.
