Things to do in the Algarve (Portugal) [with map]: best places to visit when you travel to the south of Portugal

The Algarve is the main beach destination in Portugal and the most sought after for sun and sea holidays. It has beaches for all tastes, from vast stretches of sand between giant cliffs, to small coves of clear water and even paradisiacal islands just minutes away from the coast. It has as many faces as types of beaches and it is worth spending several days to discover something from each of them, although if you only have a long weekend, it will be worth it.

In this guide we try to reflect all that the Algarve has to offer, from one coast to the other without forgetting its interior, with practical tips, itineraries from 2 to 7 days, where to stay and even where to eat to make your trip as incredible as ours has been.
