Take a 40 minute drive from Faro airport to find Albufeira, the best place on the Algarve to enjoy a sensational nightlife whilst being able to relax on glorious beaches during the day. What was once a peaceful fishing village is now home to an extensive strip featuring themed bars, clubs and everything else a night owl could want from a holiday.
For those looking for something more gentle, the old town itself is completely charming and offers a mix of restaurants and history that will make every day and night a pleasure. Albufeira is as much a family holiday destination as a place for all night revelry. Both worlds coexist happily next to each other and in both you'll enjoy a big warm welcome, easy charm and a Cosmopolitan attitude. Golfers can also use the town as a base for access to some of the best golfing courses in the Algarve. And don't forget the beaches. Olhos de Agua and Falesia are a short walk away but travel further afield for a bit of solitude and to come across fascinating rock formations and charming villages where lunch is served fresh and delicious.
