Sightseeing in Algrave

Algarve beaches are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, many of which have been awarded the exclusive Blue Flag eco-label! With 200 km of coastline, there are almost too many beaches and coves to count.



The Algarve boasts some of the best beaches in the world, and many have been given the official stamp of approval by Blue Flag which works towards sustainable development at beaches and marinas through publicly awarding sites that meet strict criteria dealing with water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management, and safety and other services.

“A paradise, wrote in its dairy the first tourist on the Algarve, Robert Southey In 1801.

At the beginning of century XX, the visitors of beaches on the region were locals and some Spanish. From the decade of 60 the development of the tourism in the Algarve was given a great jump to our days.

The main attractions are, without a doubt, the excellent weather conditions, and more than three thousand hours of sun per year.

On the other hand the unknown Algarve exists.

The folklore, the hospitality, the parties, this is reason enough to take the time to discover the region.

The Algarve
Geographically it is divided in three zones:
The Coast, the most known, where the extensive sand beaches are.
The agrarian landscape. It is characterized, mainly, by fruit trees as the citruses, almonds tree and carob trees.
The Mountain range is the less known part of the Algarve. Isolated until middle of this century, It conserves its natural beauty. Composed, the east, for the Mountain range of the Caldeirão, the west, for the Mountain range of Mochique
