About Albufeira Today:
As the 'Tourist Capital' of Portugal, Albufeira is a favourite destination for many, because of its wide variety of attractions - great nightlife, stunning beaches, exhilarating water sports, golf courses, glorious landscape and of course, the wonderful local cuisine.
The 'Old Town' is a lovely place to stroll around, either in the morning when it's quiet, or in the evening when it truly comes to life. There are dozens of pavement cafes to be found on its cobbled paths, where you can watch the street musicians and buskers, with a huge choice of restaurants and shops which cater for all tastes and budgets.
Another popular area, better known by tourists as 'The Strip' - promises a lively night out with a great atmosphere, and is also a great place to shop for souvenirs by day. The Strip stretches from Montechoro Hotel heading straight down towards Oura Beach in the south - yet another beautiful part of the city...
Climate, colour and charm:
With more than 3000 hours of sunshine per year, its colourful landscape and the friendly charm of it's people, it is little wonder that many people flock to the area to enjoy a long weekend,
or indeed, a lifetime!
