Activities and things to do
Albufeira is the town where tourism in the Algarve really began. until the 60's it was a lovely old fishing town, with the familiar whitewashed cottages and winding, cobbled Moorish streets leading to charming squares and churches, and fishing boats all clustered around the sea shore. The scenic old town is much the same today, but benefits from the modern accommodation and luxury holiday villas that border it. The town has a fine marina, and about 1¼ miles away is the main strip – Avenida Dr Francisco Sà Carneiro. This is the centre of the club scene and comes alive with cocktail bars, karaoke joints, and discos that never seem to close. Albufeira remains the most popular resort in the Algarve for a good reason.
Buganvilia Plaza
Situated at the end of Vale do Lobo and before the entrance to Quinta do Lago, Buganvilia Plaza shopping complex includes boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants, bars and a sizeable supermarket.
Aqualand Waterslide Park
Formerly known as 'The Big One,' Aqualand has spectacular gardens and is probably the largest waterpark in the Algarve.

The names of the slides give you an idea of what to expect – Hydra, Raging Rapids, Banzai Boggan, Kamikaze, Surf Beach, Rainbow Park, Crazy Leap, Crazy Race &, Congo River! Users of the Kamikaze slide fall 26 metres vertically to the pool below in only four seconds!

Aqualand is located west of Alcantarilha on the main N125 road some ten kilometres outside Albufeira. Tel: 00 351 282 320 230.
Krazy World
Krazy World has a Crazy Golf course which features a whopping 36 holes. There is a petting farm where you can hold snakes, take pony rides, touch camels, kangaroos and parrots. Swimming pools provide the opportunity to cool off.

Krazy World is located near Algoz on the N264 which leaves the N269 ten miles east of Silves. Tel: 00 351 282 574 134.

Zoomarine is an exotic marine life theme park home to hundreds of fantastic and fascinating sea creatures. The park includes dolphins, sea lions, turtles, a shark, a museum and an alligator farm as well as a mini-zoo, exotic birds and tropical fish.

Some of the best shows in Europe are staged at Zoomarine such as sea lion, dolphin and eagle shows. It is advisable to arrive early and plan an itinerary for the day.

It is also possible to interact with dolphins but it is advisable to call at least 2 days in advance. Even though it is costable, it is very popular.

Entertainment at the theme park also includes fairground rides, swimming pools, shops and a cinema.

Zoomarine is situated at KM65 close to Albufeira on the main N125 road between Pera and Guia. The park is in a tranquil setting offset by gardens and lakes. Tel: 200 351 289 560 300.
