I can tell you I do not believe there is anywhere on earth that has more to see and do than the Algarve.You have to remember that they have made this virtually the only serious Industry,wherever you stay in the region;Algarve-Tourist-Information is very easy to come by.

You can split the Algarve into three regions;east,central,and west.The west is mainly geared up for the watersport enthusi-asts.If this is you then look to stay this end of the region.The Atlantic conditions for all watersports is world-class here.

The central Algarve is set up more for night-life and families.This is the glittering nightlife region,with plenty of sandy beaches and for young families there is seaworld,Dolphins and the famous Zoomarine.If you like golf then this is a worldclass paradise.There are many top-class and beautifull golf courses,waiting for you!Algarve-Tourist-Information.

The east is more for the tradionalists.This is my favourite region.You see more of the old Portugal here.There are many tourist attractions and it is now being modernised in a sensitive way.The authorities are determined not to ruin the area.There is still plenty to do with miles and miles of golden sandy beaches and fishing ports.Again golfers are well catered for.Overall this the greenest and gentlist part of the Algarve.If you like it is the Devon of the Algarve.Algarve-Tourist-Information.

Finally I have to mention the Algarve air.Everybody who visits notices the soft cleaness of the Atlantic air.People who are unwell benefit from this wonderfull phenomenon.This stretch of the Atlantic coastline shared with south-eastern Spain is known as the coast of light and is the favourite of the northern Portuguese.The Spanish love this area as well we have had people who live in Malaga on the Costa del Sol,stay in our apartments.Each year we are finding more and more Spanish using our apartments.It says something about Cabanas that Spaniards will bypass their own resorts like Malaga to go there.I have to say in the last five years we have noticed that the Portuguese are always improving the Algarve for tourists.

Most airports have frequent flights to Faro airport and the flight time is normally less than two-and-a-half hours.Four hours from door to door is achievable and if you can be flexible on flight dates you can pick up very cheap flights.
