Algarve Beaches Not to Miss
"When in the Algarve, the main attractions are definitely the wonderful beaches. Make the most of your getaway and hop from beach to beach along the Southern coast. Among the most beautiful are Praia da Dona Ana (in Lagos), awarded in 2013 by Condé Nast, Praia da Cova Redonda (also in Lagos and considered one of the most impressive in Europe), Praia dos Três Irmãos (in Portimão) or the deserted islands in Faro. If you’re travelling with kids and family, try Praia de Odeceixe or Praia do Vau which are both accessible by car. For water sports, try Praia do Amado (in Sagres) or Praia da Arrifana (in Aljezur) where you’ll be able to surf some extraordinary waves."
Algarve Landmarks – History and Nature
"Your getaway in Algarve won’t be complete without a visit to some of the main landmarks in the region. Be sure to make a stop at Sagres and visit the local fortress, named Fortaleza de Sagres, one of the most important monuments in Portugal dating back to the 15th century. The Castle of Aljezur and the roman ruins of Milreu are too amongst the most impressive landmarks in Southern Portugal. To enjoy nature in the Algarve, try a boat trip in Ria Formosa and ride along the islands and canals across the Nature Park."
