Beach caves at Albufeira

The Algarve is the best place to enjoy sun sea and sand in Portugal. The climate is great and there are over 100 miles of the finest soft golden sand beaches. The region runs from the Atlantic Ocean near Sagres in the West to Vila Real de Santo António in the East - on the Spanish border. Along the waterfront you will find championship facilities for water sports, golf, tennis, fine restaurants and horseback riding.

The center of the Algarve is from Faro. Sandstone cliffs that open to modest bays and harbors line it. This area because, of it's popularity, also attracts the most people. From Lagos west to Sagres you have high granite cliffs, grottoes, small coves and especially scenic areas. It was here in Sagres that Prince Henry the Navigator resided and trained the Portuguese Navigators who participated in Portugal's Age of Discovery.
