Explore Algarve

What was once an area of quaint fishing villages spread out along the coast has morphed into a bustling hive of tourist activity with many popular towns and cities, and even more beaches. This region of southern Portugal has been a well-loved destination for years, in part thanks to its year-round warm and sunny climate. In July, the warmest time of year, temperatures often reach 32°C, and average highs of 17°C in the coldest months of December and January.

One of the most popular things to do in the heat is hit the beach, and, despite the high numbers of visitors, there is plenty of sand to go around. There are more than 150 beaches in this region alone, which combine soft golden sand primed for sunbathing and relaxation, with choppier waters that are perfect for those looking to surf or try out many other water sports, such as paragliding or windsurfing.

Food-wise, it's all about fresh seafood. Owing to its location, the Algarve also combines Moorish influences in its cooking, so expect slow-cooked stews and spicy paprika to showcase the day's fresh catches. These could include monkfish, sardines, mackerel or even octopus. If you're not a fan of fish, expertly roasted chicken and chips is another favourite dish, with the country's famous peri-peri sauce if you want it with an extra kick of heat.
