A once peaceful fishing village, Albufeira has been transformed into the largest and probably liveliest resort town on the Algarve coast in southern Portugal. “The Strip” in New Town has all the bars and clubs you could want, but there’s also the cobbled Old Town to explore. You’ll never run out of beaches, from little coves with quaint rock formations to golden sands packed with sun loungers and bars. Any of these holiday apartments would make a good base for exploring Albufeira, or just taking it easy by the pool.
These apartments are located about 1km (0.6mi) behind Albufeira Marina, with an outdoor swimming pool, garden and a children’s playground. There is both bicycle and car rental available. Albufeira Old Town Square is just over 3km (1.9mi) away and the Arrifes Beach – with cliffs to explore, unique rock formations in the water, and a seasonal eatery and bar – is within walking distance.
