The Algarve, full of turquoise beaches surrounded by mesmerizing cliffs and high-end resorts, is also brimming with cafés and other charming spots, perfect for grabbing lunch and a drink, combined with a bit of people watching. A few stand out from the crowd, however; here are some of the most popular cafés and snack bars in the Algarve.
This café begins the list with a twist because it isn’t located in a high-end, tourist-packed beachside town but in the village of Alte, located inland. It’s considered a “hidden” gem and is one of the area’s few vegetarian-friendly locations. It’s also a popular spot for indulging in delicious pastries and coffee.
Largo José Cavaco Vieira, 8100-012 Alte +351 289 478 338
Located in three popular cities (Albufeira, Portimão, and Vilamoura), this small beach bar chain is one of the hottest spots in the Algarve. Walk up from the beach midday for a cool drink and some light snacks and/or return in the evening to dance the evening away with a view of the ocean.
