If you wish to venture a little further on from Castelo, Albufeira has a range of shopping amenities and restaurants, as well as a good nightlife scene. Slightly further on is Praia D'Oura, with a wide selection of shops and places to eat along its mile long Strip, as well as a number of bars and clubs. Guia, the renowned home of the traditional Algarve dish spicy chicken piri-piri, which you must try in one of the restaurants, is just over 3 miles away.

Activities and things to do
Salgados golf course
One of the many courses in the Algarve, it was once an aircraft landing strip and wetland area beside a bird sanctuary.

It has been compared to both a Scottish links course and a water-filled Florida course and if you enjoy water challenges this course is for you.

The par 4 seventh is rated amongst the best holes in Portugal. The final three holes decrease in difficulty allowing golfers to ease up after a testing first 15.
