Top tips for things to do in the Algarve

Quinta Palmeiral

Algarve Housing rent holiday villas in the Algarve, the most southern part of Portugal. Apart from sun, sea and sand, we like to share a few other things to do in the Algarve. Top Tips of people who live here!

What else to do?

Drive to the top of Foia, the highest point of the Algarve, just above Monchique and enjoy the most gorgeous views of the coast with the river Arade, and Portimao. After that, allow yourself to get lost in the narrow, winding roads on your way back and experience the real Algarve!

Sit with a book and a light picnic under the canopy at Caldas de Monchique and enjoy the tranquillity and the sound of the stream.

Take a boat trip by traditional fishing boat, from Tavira to Santa Luzia or Faro Marina to Isle Deserta.

Traditional Algarvian Fishing Boats

Visit the most south westerly point of Europe, Cape St. Vincent; it is breathtaking to sit so high above the Atlantic and watch the waves come rolling in.

Stroll through historic, Moorish town Silves, the original capital of the Algarve, in the back streets the past mingles with the present in perfect harmony. Have a nice coffee on the terrace of Café Ingles, while listening to the Brazilian tunes of the live band…

Take a walk along the coastline from Ferragudo all the way to Praia do Carvalho. It works like a therapy, it will revitalise your soul and you will also feel fitter as a result!

Venture down into the awesome depths of the salt mine under Loule.

Look down on the old tiled rooftops of Tavira from the castle garden, or from the nearby camera obscura.

A round of golf on one of the Algarve’s stunning championship golf courses the Algarve boasts.

Famous Golf Courses

Visit to the Vale de lobo Royal Spa for a day of pampering and relaxation.

Dolphin Trip off the coast of Lagos or Portimao. You will see so many dolphins, you will never forget it!

Buying local honey form roadside sellers. Not only the honey is delicious, it helps local producers too!

This were a few tips, soon will follow more.

Please contact me for more information and visit our website for nice places to stay in the Algarve.
