Albufeira Holidays Guide
Albufeira is arguably the largest and most popular resort in the Algarve with plenty of accommodation options, as well as restaurants, bars and nightlife. It's a popular holiday destination whether you're on your annual family holiday, spending a romantic few days away relaxing in the sunshine, or holidaying with friends to let off some steam by the pool and in the bars.
Getting to, from and around Albufeira
Faro airport to Albufeira takes about 40 minutes in the car and costs about €35-40 each way. Taking the bus will take longer as you will need to catch a bus into Faro centre first before another bus will take you over to Albufeira.
Taxis are readily available in Albufeira but hiring a car to explore the coast is also a really good option. Many hotels can also help you book activities and excursions in the area.
Things to do in Albufeira
Albufeira is set on two beaches, the main one being Praia do Peneco. A day at the beach is a must on holiday but during the peak summer holidays, they get busy, so get down there early.
Albufeira Marina, located in the west of the town has a couple of bars and restaurants but while you'll down here, you'll want to check out the various activities on offer. Boat trips including fishing, parasailing and event flyboarding are just a few of the many things to do in Albufeira.
Where to stay in Albufeira
Most of this area of the Algarve has a full range of accommodation options from self catering apartments to all-inclusive resorts.
Hotels are scattered about Albufeira so if you’re up for a party, or prefer to be close to restaurants, you'll probably want to stay close to the Jardim Publico de Albufeira which is often considered the heart of Albufeira.
Staying close to the beach might push up the price a little and you may find some hotels and apartments are a little further outside of the main town, towards the likes of Praia da Oura which still has a number of bars and restaurants to enjoy, but you'll likely need to take taxis into Albufeira town.
