Further Afield

Away from the coast, the hills and mountains provide panoramic views with opportunities for walking, and studying the wildlife, flora and fauna.

There are many picturesque coastal and inland areas ideal for walking, including the Rio Formosa National Park featuring salt pans, lagoons, woodland, sand spits and vegetation, which stretches for miles along the coast East and West of Faro. The many sheltered natural feeding areas provide a convenient refuelling stop for birds migrating to and from Africa. 

For golfers, the Balaia and Pine Cliffs golf courses are nearby with Salgados a 15 minute drive to the West of Albufeira and the six world class golf courses of Vilamoura a 30 minute drive to the East. 

Daily coach trips to places as far as Lisbon, Seville, Evora, Fatima and Gibraltar or as near as Faro, Portimao, Lagos, Silves and Monchique can easily be picked up from stops near to the apartment. 

So whether you want a lively beach holiday or relaxing get away, Albufeira provides some of the best of both and our apartment is ideally located and presented for Lazy Dayz.
