Southern Portugal is a beautiful place and it’s easy to see why holidays to the Algarve have been popular for decades. The stunning coastlines, coupled with the predictably hot weather and the charming towns and cities means there is something for everyone on their holiday to Portugal. Whether you plan to go to one of the main cities such as Faro or Albufeira, visit a historic town such as Tavira or simply relax on the beach in a place like Praia de Albandeira.
Being so popular with tourists, there are lots of hotels in Portugal and BlueBay is delighted to own and operate three 4 star hotels for your luxury holiday in Portugal. The BlueBay Paraíso de Albufeira Balaia and the Atlántico are both located in Albufeira, one of the best cities in the Algarve for tourists. The BlueBay Porta Nova is located just minutes from the historic city of Tavira in the south east of the Algarve. Both these towns have fantastic old streets and alleyways to explore. It’s possible to get lost for hours in them as you sample the local food and drink and engage in some retail therapy.
There are so many things to do in the Algarve ranging from golf through to water sports, exploring the old towns to hiking in the countryside and being pampered at a spa through to simply relaxing on a beach.
If there’s one sport that the Algarve is famous for, it’s golf. In fact, many people visit mainly because they are on golf holidays in Portugal. In particular, the golf courses around Albufeira are of a very high standard.
