We give you a few tips of people who live here, of things to do in the Algarve.
There is a very nice walk along the length of Alvor’s beach and then returning via the estuary. One walk, two totally different landscapes
Would you like to have some exercise during your holiday? Rent a bicycle, catch the train (with your bikes) at Boliqueime station, get off Faro station and cycle back, following the Eco-via cycle route. This is the best section of the route. You can see flamingos feeding in the Ria Formosa nature reserve; Roman ruins; golfers hitting their balls into the lagoon at Sao Lourenco; have lunch at BJ’s Oceanside restaurant at Quarteira; and stop for a drink at Vilamoura Marina.
Or fancy more a lazy afternoon at Forum Algarve, a large shopping centre near Faro, or shopping Algarve, near Guia and/or watch a film in the cinema.
Visit one of the region’s many wineries, Portuguese wine is underrated and these small, family-owned businesses are incredibly interesting. Plus there’s the tasting, of course.
Eat in a PROPER Portuguese restaurant – good food and great value. North of the A22 motorway you will find many towns and villages, where you find local food for local prices!
Drive to Monchique, eat typical Monchique food in the restaurant ‘ A Charrete’, enjoy the views in Foia and go across to Aljezur to explore the west coast beaches or go north to the border of the alentejo. Fantastic wild flower displays in the spring!
A drive from Silves to Alcoutim through the EN124 to discover the interior Algarve, fantastic green scenery, windy roads; stop in little villages for a beer or a lunch, discover the Real Algarve.
Having prawns BBQ’d in garlic and lemon with chips and salad followed by mousse de chocolate at the Adega da Marina in Lagos, pure indulgence on a budget!
