Pretty beaches and verdant hilltops, traditional towns and bustling cities, calming spas and vibrant nightlife – there’s something for everyone in the heart of the Algarve.
Sitting right in the middle of the region, the area known as the Central Algarve is one of the most popular and widely visited in Portugal, and for good reason.
Whether you’re looking for something modern or more traditional, relaxing or adventurous, for a family holiday or a getaway for two, here are just three reasons why the Central Algarve is the perfect place to enjoy.
- Beautiful scenery
Some of the most iconic images of the Algarve come from this area: the picturesque town of Carvoeiro and its former fisherman’s beach, the world-famous Marinha beach, the iconic Benagil cave, the ancient capital of Silves and its castle, even the sweeping greens of some of the country’s finest golf courses can all be found here.
2. Lively surroundings
Although beautiful, there’s certainly nothing dull about the Central Algarve. Whether it’s the upmarket area of Vilamoura and the Golden Triangle, the nightlife favourite Albufeira, or the more intimate areas of Carvoeiro and Ferragudo, there is an incredible choice of Portuguese and international restaurants, elegant cocktail bars and busy pubs for every taste, all year round.
3. Topnotch facilities and services
While the weather and the laid-back lifestyle is what first attracts many visitors to the Algarve, the most central region is also the most complete when it comes to shopping centres and sports facilities. It’s also well connected, thanks to its motorways and regular public transportation, plus English is spoken widely.
