Or, for more relaxing surroundings, there's a string of picturesque cove beaches to the west of Albufeira, including Coelho, Castelo and Gale.

Activities and things to do
Balaia Golf course
Opened in April 2001, this small and attractive 9 hole Executive Golf Course offers the opportunity to improve your iron shots, your short game and to test every golfer irrespective of handicap. Set around lakes, rolling hills and a mixture of pine and cork trees, from the first tee it presents a charming view of most of the course with the ribbon of blue sea as its background. This course requires pin point approaches, a fine touch around the greens and a solid putting stroke. This course tests the ability to control shot length and direction. 984 metres in length. 27 Par. Address: Balaia Golf Village, 8200 Albufeira Tel: 00 351 289 570 442/1 Fax: 00 351 289 570 470 Website: You can contact via website to pre-book.
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.
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.
As if paying tribute to a turbulent history in the middle ages, the blood red walls of mighty Silves Castle overlook the surrounding countryside. The largest military monument to the Islamic period in Portugal, it remembers a different past in the Iberian Peninsula.

The Old Cathedral (which features gargoyles from over 500 years ago) city walls and medieval bridge emphasise Silves as an historical town. An historical town would be incomplete without a museum which in this city contains an 11th century well!

Visitors may wish to take a trip through time by sailing down the Arade River to the sea, passing vestiges of Roman and Viking presence.
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.

This villa and its' location were a superb introduction to villa holidays! It was very quiet, despite its proximity to the "strip", there was a selection of supermarkets and eating venues, from cafes' to restaurants within easy walking distance, making it a car less holiday. The villa had everything needed for a relaxing,carefree and quiet holiday!!! Looking for 2014's already :-)
