The Algarve is notorious for being absolutely stunning, yet very few people get to experience it properly. This deal is the perfect way for you to do just that, and enjoy a self-driving tour around the beautiful region; this is a trip you won’t forget!
Tour of the Algarve
The first stop on your way is Albufeira, this is one of the regions that is notorious for its beautiful sandy beaches and quaint town centre. It’s an increasingly popular tourist destination because it also happens to have a really great nightlife scene; so if you want to let loose a little bit, this would be the place to do it!
I would definitely recommend searching for some of the quieter beaches.. like Praia de Sao Rafael and Praia do Castelo. This is just because it means that you can really relax and take in the beauty that is around you. Whilst you’re staying here, you will be staying in the Vale de Carros, which has received a TripAdvisor rating of 4/5 as well as being awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2014.
The next stop will be Portimao, which is only a 35 minute drive away from your first location. Portimao is where you would go if you wanted to go shopping, but wanted to avoid Faro. It has some really amazing sardines; a Portuguese speciality, so you definitely need to make sure you try them. Portugal actually had a competition to design a cartoon sardine and had an exhibition of the best; it was really cool!
Whilst you’re staying here, you will be staying in the 4* Oceano Atlantico Apartamentos, which have received a TripAdvisor rating of 3.5/5. Although this is an average rating, most of the people have been really positive about it so I don’t think you’ll have any problems over the 2 nights. Whilst you’re staying here, you will also be provided with a daily breakfast!
The final stop on your tour is Lagos. This is known because of its part played in history as well as having some more beautiful beaches on offer for you to explore properly! This is one of the more traditional towns in the Algarve, so you’ll have a completely different experience here than in the other two areas. It’s a really popular place for people to go if they want to see dolphins, so maybe organising a dolphin searching cruise would be a good idea for whilst you’re staying there.
This is also where you’ll find the really cool rock formations and caves of Ponta de Piedade. This is definitely a trip worth adding onto your list. Whilst here, you will be staying in the Carvi Hotel Lagos, which has received a good TripAdvisor rating of 4/5. Whilst you’re staying here you will be provided with a daily breakfast!
This is a really great deal, and is available on travelbird.co.uk for only £199 per person! This is also a good excuse, for you to go and explore one of the most beautiful parts of Portugal. It is possibly one of the prettiest parts of Europe, just begging to be explored properly!
