After a day spent in sporting or cultural activities, or even relaxing on magnificent beaches, you can enjoy the Algarve by having a leisurely stroll in the warm and vibrant evenings.
Especially during the warmer months, Algarvian nights are teeming with commercial activity and tourists taking full advantage of the time they spend here.
Equipped with an excellent leisure infrastructure, the four marinas - Lagos, Portimão, Albufeira and Vilamoura – are excellent places for relaxation. Walking along the waterfront through gardens or commercial centres is one of the small but indispensible pleasures when you are on holiday.
Moreover, in the historical parts of the cities, with many streets closed off to traffic, window shopping and taking in the architecture or enjoying the inviting evening temperatures are great alternatives.
For those reluctant to leave the seaside, the waterfront is a great place to spend the last hours of the day, strolling lazily in the summer evening, while enjoying an ice cream and the healthy buzz which is characteristic of the holidays. For this, Portimão, Albufeira, Alvor, Quarteira, Armação de Pêra and Monte Gordo are unrivalled.
Regardless of what atmosphere you are looking for, these are the experiences which you will most want to repeat, and which will undoubtedly leave a fond sensation of longing to return.
