Albufeira Introduction

From the elegant, whitewashed architecture of the Old Town to the funky pastel-coloured buildings of The Strip, Albufeira dazzles beneath the southern Portuguese sun. This pretty town clings to the hillside, ending abruptly at the sheer cliff-faces, where it gives way to some of the Algarve’s most beautiful beaches – the reason most people come here. Beach bars and restaurants line the promenades, creating a jovial and lively atmosphere, while the ocean offers a wealth of diving, boating and dolphin-watching opportunities.

Where to stay

In the Old Town and Fisherman’s Beach area, you’ll find plenty of hotels and self-catering apartments to choose from, many with beach access and sea views. This is a great place to stay to enjoy some of the history and culture of Albufeira, as well as the beach scene. A whole host of restaurants, bars and shops will keep you well-fed and entertained. If you’re coming to make the most of the Algarve nightlife, then stay around The Strip, near Oura Beach. There are beach activities to keep you busy during the day, and plenty of bars and clubs at night.

Things to see

Explore Albufeira’s cultural heart at the Old Town Square, dominated by the Clock Tower, a vestige of the city’s Moorish past. With mosaic paving, terracotta rooftops and palm trees, this area is incredibly photogenic and romantic. In the day, the many cafes around the square are ideal for sipping a Portuguese coffee and watching the world go by, while at night, the square is illuminated and the bars swing into action with music and cocktails. Nearby is Fisherman’s Beach, a popular stretch of golden sand. It is still used by fishermen, so you’ll find the daily catch on restaurant menus here. A couple of miles further along the coast, you’ll find Oura Beach, where you can sunbathe in the sheltered cove or take off on a jet ski. Nearby, the modern, colourful area known as The Strip is the centre of Albufeira’s nightlife, thrumming with music, people and lights.
