About the area

Albufeira and Surrounds

Average weather

Originally a small fishing village, Albufeira has grown into a large, bustling tourist resort. But from the pretty old town to the modern new marina, there is a lot to explore both here and in the surrounding area. Enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine in the main square Largo Duarte Pacheco where locals and tourists alike congregate, and people watch to your heart’s content. Hire a car and explore nearby fishing villages or one of the dozens of beaches along this stretch of coast, or venture inland to historic Silves.
