Activities & Events Calendar


While the Algarve is well known for its magnificent beaches,championship golf courses and 3000 hours of sunshine each year,there are many other aspects and facilities to add to your enjoyment.

However,if it is 155kms of golden sandy beaches which you crave,the Algarve,as winner of World Travel Awards 2012 for "Best Beach Destination" with its ochre cliffs,is the perfect choice for your holiday.

Many of the beaches are served with sun loungers,parasols and restaurants and offer a wide range of water craft for hire.Lifeguards are in attendance on the main beaches and you should heed warning flags when swimming conditions are not safe.With such an extensive coastline,should you wish to escape from the favourite busy beaches,there are many accessible stretches of glorious sand,which are not over populated.We can provide you with details of these "secret" locations.

For the occasions when you wish to take a break from the beach or golf course,there are many other events and attractions,which are well worth a visit.A varied sample of activities are listed below....click on the topic to open its website.We have included an upcoming events calendar at the bottom of the page,which will be updated frequently to assist you in scheduling and planning your vacation..........more information can be found at the local Tourist Offices.
