Getting In

Get Around






























What to do in Albufeira

 There are lots of activities and trips to get involved with in Albufeira and environs.  These range from:

  • Sunbathing and swimming on the beaches, such as: Praia da Galé, Praia da Oura, Fisherman's Beach, Beach of Bryn, Marina e Bryn Beach

  • Eat at the many restaurants/cafes.   Have English breakfast (a lot better than the typical hotel version) at the Barracuda Pub just off the main square.  Try spaghetti bolognaise and a beer for lunch, while looking at the sea view at the Antonio Afonso da Silva restaurant overlooking Praia do Peneco beach. For your evening meal try the pepper steak at the Tasca Do Viegas restaurant adjacent to Fisherman's Beach (Praia dos Pescadores)

  • A full days cruise departing from the Marina De Albufeira.  Normally includes a barbecue beach lunch, and time for swimming and snorkelling

  • Visit the Sir Cliff Richard Vineyard and sample his wares - should cost around 24 Euros (2007 prices).  Interestingly the Albufeirians have re-named a road in his honour for his services to the City, which is imaginatively called the 'Rua Sir Cliff Richard'.  If you want to see this road sign it is located adjacent to the back entrance of the Hotel Boa Vista

  • Go to a bull fight at the Praca De Toiros, Albufeira

  • A day trip to Gibraltar by coach; this costs around 35 Euros (2007 prices) but does not include the Rock tour (optional), which costs around 20 Euros.  You should expect to be travelling for six hours each way with five hours on the rock for sightseeing - it's a long day so expect an early start.  Look out for last minute deals (on the notice board outside the shop) for this and other tours at Paradise Tours located near the town centre - you may be able to halve the usual cost!
