The Algarve is a fantastic place to visit during the festive season, and sees many visitors flock here during the winter months to enjoy an out of season holiday.

While you may not be able to lie out on the beach in a bikini, certainly exploring the beautiful coastal areas is something you can do in the Algarve at any time of year.
