Albufeira is one of the prettiest coastal towns of the Algarve. Located in the district of Faro, Albufeira was once a moorish fortress and fishing village, but has been brought into the 21st century as a thriving travel destination without losing its historical charm. The surrounding coast is rich in sheltered sandy bays with turquoise clear water, ideal for sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling. In the daytime, you can explore the ancient caves, accessible by boat, where you can even find some of the local sea life. During the evening, Albufeira is the perfect location for vibrant nightlife along with its many restaurants and bars.
