Activities and things to do
Albufeira Resort
Albufeira is one of the largest resorts in The Algarve and this holiday resort is the original tourist capital of the region. Although the main square is surrounded by souvenir shops and supermarkets, the atmosphere of Albufeira is essentially Moorish with hundreds of white villas streaming out from the centre and hugging the nearby hillsides.

During the 19th Century the economy of Portugal was not surprisingly based around the fishing industry. Albufeira was one of the first tourist areas of The Algarve, and in the 1960&rsquo,s started to become extremely important to the local economy. Holiday villas have since spread out from the old town centre of Albufeira, to the neighbouring resorts such as Praia d&rsquo,Oura.

Visit Albufeira&rsquo,s colourful marina which is West of Albufeira &ndash, a great place to have a leisurely coffee or a glass of wine whilst watching the boats. A lot of money has been invested in Albufeira Marina with sculptures, shops, the yachting club, watersports and boat trips available.

The beautiful bay at Albufeira forms a natural amphitheatre, sheltered by bizarrely shaped cliffs. This is a lively area for a villa holiday, which has a number of bars and nightclubs yet still remains home to some of the traditional Portuguese way of life with local fisherman and their brightly painted boats still plying a profitable trade.

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.
