The landmark of the Algarve in southern Portugal are the ochre cliffs and idyllic rocky bays. The beautiful beaches of the region invite you to swim and enjoy the sun. The capital Faro attracts with a charming old town.
Boasting a Mediterranean climate and oodles of sunshine, the Algarve has the perfect prerequisites for a relaxing beach holiday. The craggy coast with its lagoons and dunes is, unsurprisingly, also hugely popular among water sports enthusiasts. The distinctive ochre rock formations, some protruding directly out of the sea, are an attraction for scuba divers. The same cliffs provide an impressive backdrop for boat excursions. Golfers enjoy their time on very well-maintained golf courses.
