Albufeira attracts thousands of visitors every year and it’s easy to understand why!
First and foremost, Albufeira is famed for its beaches, for the countless shades and tones of its rocks and cliffs. This is a place where people live to the rhythm of the great holiday destinations, sunbathing during the day and at sunset flocking to enjoy the restaurants, bars and discos that enliven the night-time hours.
Just a few miles inland and everything changes. The green of the countryside is dotted with almond, fig, orange and pine trees and decorated chimneys stand out against the ocher of tiled roofs.
Gastronomy is a strong point. In the foreground of all eating pleasure in this region is the principal activity of fishing.
Traditional Algarve dishes include a variety of fish and shellfish, and the delicious grilled sardines. Tuna, sea bream, monkfish, horse mackerel “alimados”, squid and many other delicacies are prepared in excellent stews, ragouts or grilled, or boiled.
