There are a few countries that have emerged in recent years as the most prominent, accessible and popular tourist destinations in Europe and Portugal is one of them, largely thanks to its outstanding seashore by the Atlantic Ocean. Here is the ABC’s of planning a Successful Trip to the Algarve.
The Algarve boasts with over 300 days of sunshine. And even in the cloudy days, the weather stays mild and warm. So there’s no wonder this is the ultimate Portuguese tourist destination. Aside from Lisbon, a wonderful city with a rich country, foreigners flood Portugal in the warm season for its lovely beaches, water sports facilities and Golf courses.
The Algarve, in case you didn’t know, is Europe’s top golf destinations and one of the best – if not the absolute best – in the world.
Here are some quick facts about the Algarve as well:
Faro is the capital city of the region. Other main resorts include Albufeira, Portimao, Lagoa, Lagos, but also small fishing villages with a very authentic air, such as Salema, Sagres or Burgau.
The currency in Portugal is the Euro, which makes it easy for citizens in the European Union to compare prices and go shopping here.
Portugal borders Spain on the eastern coast, mostly through the Natural Reservation Ria Formosa, a beautiful region, a natural gem consisting of a cluster of islands with whitewashed sandy beaches.
Foreign investors have built luxurious hotels here and one of the reason British tourists love the Algarve is the elegant sport of golf. There are excellent facilities, as well as services designed around the “golf industry”, if we can call it that way. You can choose Algarve golf transfers to take you to your golf course of choice and back to the hotel or hire golf clubs with Faro golf club hire.
The Algarve is definitely a destination not to miss if you like the seaside.
