When: You can go all year round for sun, so visit Albufeira from May to August to get a tan good enough to attract an equally sun-kissed beachgoer...did someone say kissed?
Where: Stay near the main Praia dos Pescadores beach and you’ll never be far from turquoise waters, fresh food and a little company if you fancy it.
Why: Because you deserve more warmth than you get and would love to take your pick of water sport and nightclubs. You’ve also got a mean swing when you need to, so golf is right up your street.
When: Live it up from May to September. July and August will be the best for events and a lively atmosphere, so pack all of your necessities.
Where: Definitely get close to the famous strip of bars and clubs in the centre of Albufeira. Bar hop for a range of DJs, live music and cocktails just how you like’em.
Why: Because you want fun filled days and nights! You can keep yourselves busy on the golf courses, try a jeep safari and then party, party, party into the early hours.
When: You don’t want to be sweaty without good reason, so go in either May or September and October. You’ll only be missing rainfall back in Blighty!
Where: Get a hotel with romantic views and fresh sea air so even if you end up spending a lot of time in your room, you’ll still experience the beauty of Albufeira!
Why: You both want a romantic getaway where you can do as you please. Frolic along the seafront, be cultured in the old town and let loose in the bars...well, not too loose!
When: The best time to head out is May to September to make the most of the sun and get your Algarve holiday warming your bones for the British winter ahead.
Where: Without a doubt, stay near the seafront. The waters are safe and clean for peace of mind and you won’t want to walk far when the children get tired out...bad mood alert!
Why: Parents want as much fun as their children when all’s said and done, particularly dads, right? So, get active at water parks, excited at theme parks and bond on family beach walks.
