The Algarve

The AlgarveDiscover the Algarve, Portugal - one of Europe’s finest and most popular holiday destinations.

Blessed with over 300 days of sunshine annually, the Algarve’s spectacular stretch of coastline consists of golden sandy beaches and glorious azure waters.

The Algarve enjoys a fabulous climate; spring arrives early and the long summers are complemented by refreshing sea breezes, while the gorgeous autumns last late into the year.

Even in winter, sunny days are the norm, leading to enviable year-round golfing conditions; and with over 30 top-class golf courses , the Algarve region represents the perfect destination for discerning travellers looking for a quality golfing experience.

‘Al Gharb’ - as the Arabs first named the region - also attracts a large influx of visitors due to its rich and diverse cultural heritage. Visit the historic Sagres Peninsula where Infante D. Henrique (Henry the Navigator) inspired a Golden era of Portuguese exploration in the 15th Century, or explore the beautiful town of Tavira on the edge of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, with its breathtaking ancient churches and fine mansions.

Or check out historic Silves, a town with a distinctive Moorish past, where you can find the best-preserved castle in the Algarve, which was built on the 11th Century.

Silves Castle was begun in the 11th century, and it is nowadays the finest example of Islamic Military Architecture in Portugal. 

Considered the biggest castle in the Algarve Region, Silves Castle is regarded as one of the country’s best preserved monuments, and once inside the walls it is easy to imagine how life may have been in medieval times, through the innumerable vestiges found there.
