Rest and enjoyment in safety
The Algarve is the region with the most beaches in Portugal, offering excellent family holidays throughout the year.
In an irresistible invitation to relax, many beaches offer ideal conditions and activities for the whole family: encouraging fun walks, discovering hidden treasures, building sand castles, swimming or taking advantage of the wide range of entertainment facilities.
To meet the high and demanding standards necessary to ensure water quality, safety, and environment management and protection, the Algarve keeps its sea water clean and its beaches pollution-free, making it a top destination for quiet and enjoyable holidays.
With fully equipped amenities, these beaches provide a range of restaurants, cafés and parking facilities for a quiet and stress-free stay. Such beaches include Odeceixe, Arrifana, Ferragudo, Carvoeiro, Albufeira, Quarteira, Manta Rota and Monte Gordo, to name but a few.
The Algarve has a coast full of surprises for even the most assiduous visitor - imposing cliffs, colourful rock formations, gentle sands, some of them on barrier islands, and coastal cruises offering a different view of the region’s cities.
