Water parks, crocodiles and golf

There are 7 beaches to choose from in Albufeira alone so there’s little chance of over crowding here. Once a sleepy fishing village and now one of the Algarve’s largest resorts, the boats can still be seen bobbing along the shoreline bringing home tonight’s fresh offerings for supper. The old town is a maze of narrow streets, discreet shops, cafes and bars, and still home to many whitewashed fishing cottages. The main beach can be reached from here via a tunnel. If it’s something a little livelier you are looking for then head to ‘The Strip’, a parade of bars and clubs giving the option to party all night long.

Water sports are a great pastime to enjoy on Albufeira holidays with jet skiing, water skiing, windsurfing and even wreck diving all available from here.

Aqualand is an adventurous day out for all the family, ride the Anaconda corkscrew or brave the Kamikaze, but don’t worry, there are plenty of gentler rides to choose from. The Zoo Marine Centre at Guia is home to sharks and alligators, Amazonia will amaze you with its live shows, crocodiles, alligators and tropical birds. Krazy World is another family favourite with fairground attractions and animal handling sessions, or looking further afield, take a day trip to Seville in Spain. An excursion inland offers stunning scenery with the contrast from the beach of lush green vegetation, fig trees and olive groves.
