Algarve-Holidays For the watersports enthusiast the western end of the Algarve is worldclass.Every type of watersport is practised here thanks to the wonderfull blustery Atlantic breezes.This end is known as the end of the world;though nowadays we have cottoned on that Brazil is just across the water.You will find a good crowd of surfers etc at this end of the Algarve nearl all year round.Everything in the Algarve is year round.I have had breakfast on a sunny balcony in early January.
You might think that Britain is the place for history but the Algarve can easily match it.The Romans used to book package holidays to the Algarve.I think flights were hard to come by then however!Roman architecture can be seen everywhere.The city of Tavira has a Roman bridge still in daly use.To my mind Tavira is a must for the tourist.It is a timeless unspoilt city;high-rise does not exist here and the local authorities have no intention of letting it and the surrounding areas being spoilt.By law nothing can be built over three stories high.Situated in the east Algarve they say this region is fifteen years behind the rest of the Algarve.In the nice respects this is true but you are not cut-off and all modern facilities are easily available!Tavira is a little jewel with riverside restaurants and lots of small interesting shops.On the city outskirts you find the Islha de Tavira which basically is a superb beach resort.River cruises and sea cruises and small fishing villages and Lagoons and nature reserves and history and,and,and...Abound in this area.Going back to our general history,the Moors who ruled Spain also ruled in the Algarve and much evidence of Moorish architecture is still in evidence.Of course Portugal also has a rich maritime history.While the English etc invaded North America,the Spanish and Portuguese discovered South America.No accident this it is just that geographically they happen to be directly opposite their respective conquests.
Algarve-Holidays ...For yet another kind of holiday there is a very advanced network of Motor-home sites throughout the
Algarve.So if this is your bag;you will have a wonderful time and you will find the sites full of many nationalities who all mingle with great affability.These are a great favourite with both the Germans and the Dutch in particular and you will find them very friendly.They really do not fit the undeserved prototypes we English tend to have of them.Give it a try you will not be sorry you did.
Finally if your thing is the traditional tourism of sunny beaches and sunbathing and general chilling.Then the Algarve is second to none.The Portuguese have made themselves the experts in fullfilling your needs.They are VERY PROUD of the quality holidays they provide.
Activity holidays are a big thing nowadays and the Algarve does not let you down on these types of holiday.We have a page devoted to activities,

Algarve-Holidays So we have covered many types of holiday but have left out many others.However I think from the information given;if for example you wanted a walking holiday,you could work out that the Algarve would be an ideal place to indulge yourself!
All the major tour operators such as first choice,Thompsons and Tripadvisor operate exstensively throughout the Algarve.So you will be able to find whatever type of holiday you want.It is estimated that some 80 different airlines fly in and out of Faro Airport.
Although the temperatures get as high as virtually all the famous hotspots,the heat in the Algarve is nowhere near as oppresive.Why should this be? Well there is a very good reason and that is geographic location.The entire coastline,some 150 kilometres plus,opens onto the Atlantic Ocean.This leads to refreshing sea breezes and fine clean air.There is just no way the air can become stale and heavy like mediteranean climates.
I have been in the Algarve in the city of Faro and seen temperatures of 41 degrees celsius but it was nowhere near as sweaty as for example the high seventies in the United Kingdom.
For those who love sporty' or active holidays you will find it all here!Look through the Algarve information heading to your left and browse our activity pages,you will find enough to keep any "adrenelin junky" on a high.If you want to try some new sport or activity on you Algarve-Holidays you will find schools of instuction exist for "most everything".
The beaches,known in Portuguese as Praias are very numerous and second to none for sandiness and cleanliness.The Algarve people take their tourism duties very seriously.Even the Camaras (local councils)are commited to keeping the region fresh and tourist friendly.You will rarely see neglected or scruffy roundabouts.They tend to be themed,so near the airport are statues of people looking up into the sky.If there is a golf course closeby then you will see a statue of a golfer.I just hope Europe's so called "Austerity measures" do not lead to the region going downhill for the tourists.What do "Austerity measures" mean? It means "CUTBACKS"!In real terms this means the same as in the United Kingdom.For example raising every type of taxation and introducing dozens of back door taxes,thus removing billions from the consumer market.It means services being drastically cut.For example one of the worst in the UK was centralisation of local rates.This actually means all the rates are sent to the national government,who of course start by creaming billions off the "topline" before redistributing the rest how they see fit.These reduced amounts mean the councils have to cut every service to the poor that they possibly can.If this happens the Camaras' will not have money to spend on keeping the Algarve so pretty and Everybodies Algarve-Holidays will suffer
