Things to do whilst on holiday in the Algarve
Take a cave and dolphin-watching tour to cruise along the stunning Atlantic coastline, explore hidden grottos, and to spot the bottlenose dolphins at play in Albufeira's waters.
Enjoy some family fun and get an even closer dolphin encounter at the Zoomarine Sea-Life Park where you can swim with these intelligent sea creatures and take a closer look at other incredible ocean inhabitants.
For a more peaceful and secluded experience look no further than Sagres where you'll be taken aback by some of the most dramatic scenery in Portugal. Here the famous and historic Cabo Sao Vicente lighthouse offers awe-inspiring panoramas and is unsurprisingly amongst the most photographed areas in the region.
Temporarily leave the soft sands and turqouise waters at bay and discover the astounding beauty of rural Algarve at the Monchique mountains. Take a calming stroll amid unspoilt nature, admire phenomenal vistas of the southern Portuguese coastlines and the surrounding emerald hills from the Algarve's highest peak, and even visit the thermal springs of Caldas do Monchique, a spa town which was once a popular destination amongst Portuguese royalty.
