The long stretch of land that covers the whole of Portugal’s southern coast is known as the Algarve.
It is one of the finest holiday destinations in the whole of Europe, known for its idyllic white sandy beaches and clear blue waters, its privileged climate and top-of-the-notch golf courses.
And there is more to Algarve then just its sunny coastlines or golf courses. Feel free to discover the Moorish legends, the legacy of five centuries of Arab occupation, the numerous castles and authentic picturesque fishing villages or the hills of the interior, with its rural way of life and wild vegetation.
The south coast is a popular tourist region as a holiday destination for foreigners and the Portuguese themselves.
