The tourist town of Albufeira is ideally located for a golfing break with a number of fantastic golf courses positioned nearby and commanding stunning views of the coastline.  This popular holiday resort is located in central Algarve on the southern coast of Portugal and within just a 40 minute drive from Faro airport. The 18-hole Salgados  course is especially popular with golfers who visit Albufeira and the two nearby smaller 9-hole courses of Pine Cliffs and Balaia are popular with beginners.  Other courses within a reasonable distance include those near Carvoeiro.

The town itself is popular with golfers and non golfers alike with its beautiful sandy beaches, and fantastic restaurants endearing it to visitors of all ages. The beaches in and around Albufeira are family friendly and offer all kinds of amenities, activities and water sports. The two main beaches are Fisherman’s Beach and Albufeira Beach and the prestigious blue flag beaches are Evaristo, Oura, Sao Rafel and Gale. Albufeira has a fantastic range of nightlife with plenty of quiet cafes, quaint restaurants across beautiful winding streets and in the Montechoro or ‘the strip’ you’ll find plenty of lively restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Souvenir shops are located in and around the central square area and a range of hotels and self catering accommodation can be found to suit either families, couples or groups of friends.  Albufeira is built on a steep hill side so be prepared for steep walks if you are planning to explore.
