The Algarve ‘s Travel & Tourism

The Algarve is one of the best known regions of Portugal, generating the highest share of tourist nights spent in the country. It is a well-established European sun and beach destination - primarily for families and seniors/third-age travellers - and the preferred holiday destination for more than a quarter of Portuguese people.

But it also offers enormous potential for holidaymakers and long-stay visitors interested in more than just sun and beach - whether they want activity holidays, or are simply looking for quiet relaxation away from the more traditional, and often over-commercialized, Mediterranean resorts.

Region of Algarve

The town of Monchique, is situated in an unspoiled location reflecting the spirit of a rustic lifestyle with spectacular mountain views. Just 45 minutes from Faro Airport, 20 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Portimao and Alvor and 10 minutes from the new Algarve Motorway, Monchique enjoys a temperate climate protected from the cold northern winds.

From early on, Lagos was a gateway to the Mediterranean and continues to be a meeting-place for people from all over the world. It was from its wide bay, encircled by the fine sands of Meia Praia that Gil Eanes set off, the first to round Cape Bojador; it was here that privateers like Sir Francis Drake hid, and galleons full of gold and precious stones from the Americas or spices from the India put into port.
