Beaches which never sleep
Especially in warm summer months, many Algarvian beaches are open all night. From action-packed days in the sun and sea, night brings on a different kind of beach entertainment.
In Portimão, holidaymakers are attracted to beaches by day, and bars and discos during long and entertaining nights. For those not wanting to leave the sea, not even at night, the Alvor waterfront area and Tomás Cabreira Avenue (Praia da Rocha’s seafront promenade) are not to be missed because they are areas teeming with activity: bars, open-air cafés, restaurants, and discos. Prainha, Vau, Praia da Rocha and Marina are places to be!
Albufeira is one of the most famous nightlife centres in the entire Algarve with its many bars, clubs, discos and lively open-air cafés, and the broad range of music on offer. São Rafael, Pescadores (Fishermen’s Beach), Oura and Santa Eulália are the busiest and most sought-after.
Armação de Pêra, especially the seafront area, and Carvoeiro are also options for holidaymakers who cannot do without the hubbub of the city.
Finally, Tavira Island Beach, dotted with bars which are open until midnight, has a special evening ambience all of its own.
