VisitAlgarve - Portal de Turismo do Algarve



From one end of the Algarve to the other, there’s fun for every taste. In every municipality across the Algarve, you can visit museums and municipal and private galleries where you can discover works not only by local artists but also some who have from afar to exhibit the latest artistic trends here in the Algarve.

The Algarve boasts a fine selection of municipal theatres and auditoriums that offer regular programmes of great quality, so that everyone can enjoy watching plays, dance performances and concerts.

Discover the mysteries of science when you visit the Centros de Ciência Viva (Living Science Centres) in Faro, Lagos and Tavira. Learn about science while having fun doing experiments or observing in person. Do physics and chemistry experiments that will amaze you.

What better way to unwind in an atmosphere of healthy competition than a game of bowling. There are several indoor bowling alleys, such as the ones in Alvor and Portimão, but if you prefer to be outdoors, lawn bowling is offered at the Valverde Lawn Bowls Club in Almancil, the Vilamoura Lawn Bowls Club and the Tavira Lawn Bowling Club.

There are many different opportunities for sporting fun, such as climbing, abseiling, paintball, zip-lining and archery at adventure parks like Parque Aventura in Albufeira and Parque Aventura da Foia, in Monchique.

If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, speed around the Karting Circuit in Almancil, a scale replica of the Brazilian Formula 1 circuit in Jacarepaguá.

Have fun at the Algarve’s theme parks. The AquaShow Family Fun Park in Loulé, Aqualand The Big One in Alcantarilha and Slide & Splash in Estômbar will delight the whole family.

And be sure to visit Zoomarine, voted one of the best theme parks by TripAdvisor, and get a close-up look at dolphins, seals and sharks. At Lagos Zoo and Krazy World in Silves, you can interact with the animals and appreciate all their beauty close up.

As you can see, there’s fun in the Algarve at every turn.
