Visit Portugal’s “Gold Coast” in The Algarve

Nestled along the southwestern Coast of Portugal, the Algarve region has long been a favorite vacation destination for regional and global travelers

The Algarve’s unique geography ensures year-round sunny days and warm, dry weather in the summer months. What really sets the Algarve apart are its rugged coastal cliffs, its glistening golden beaches, and the unique melding of Roman and colonial-era influences with modern design sensibilities. Want to relax on the beach, hike the sun-soaked cliff sides, or explore a region’s history and culture? Portugal’s Algarve makes the perfect summer destination.

Explore the Capital City of Faro

Faro, the Algarve’s charming capital, offers a blend of ancient history and modern amenities. The Old Town district, surrounded by Roman walls, features centuries-old landmarks. Be sure to make time for the Cathedral of Faro and the Roman Temple of Milreu. Stroll along Faro’s coastal marina for a perfect view of the sunset and the chance to indulge in fresh local cuisine.  Be sure to visit the Ria Formosa National Park just outside of town. Relax on the park’s pristine beaches or kayak out to one of the uninhabited islands dotting the lagoon.

The Portimão Beaches

Portimão is renowned for its picture-perfect beaches and dramatic cliffside views. Sun-seekers and nature lovers alike find it a favorite destination. Praia da Rocha boasts vast expanses of golden sands and calm waters, perfect for swimming and sunbathing. The nearby Praia dos Três Irmãos offers visitors a more secluded experience, tucked away among soaring rock formations and quiet hidden coves. Spend the day swimming, jet skiing, or parasailing before winding down at a local beachside bar or restaurant on Portimão’s promenade.

Arrifana Beach

Arrifana Beach is widely hailed among surf aficionados. The steady, reliable waves along this stretch of the Algarve’s coast make it perfect for novice surfers who are just learning to get up on the board. Intermediate surfers will find it perfect to practice new tricks in manageable conditions. Consistent waves and local beachside surfing schools, set Arrifana Beach as the perfect place to learn to surf or to hone your skills. The unspoiled Arrifana Beach is framed on three sides by ancient volcanic cliffs and rock formations.  The golden beach and azure waters below make it ideal for hiking or picnicking.

Take a Swing in Algarve

While the Algarve is ideal for beachgoers and surfers, it’s also a premier destination for golfers and golf enthusiasts. Monte Rei, designed with input from Jack Nicklaus, is currently ranked as the number one golf course in Portugal. The iconic Dom Pedro Old Course, known for its impeccable maintenance and classic design, sits in a picturesque, wooded landscape that recalls the earliest years of the sport.

Another top choice is Quinta do Lago (South Course), which offers a challenging design for experienced golfers. San Lorenzo, set in the untouched natural beauty of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, merges breathtaking views with a demanding course that tests all skill levels. Palmares features a mix of parkland and links-style holes, offering diverse play and spectacular ocean views. If you’re deciding where to enjoy a golf vacation this summer, consider touring Algarve’s extraordinary courses.
