August in the Algarve, is a month full of entertainment, so many things to do in the Algarve. The Algarve is alive and kicking! Most beaches are crowded, you see the children’s air castles popping up everywhere, the nets to play ball games, massages at the beach, live music, happy, laughing and dancing people everywhere. Gin tonics and ‘sex’ on the beach….That is the Algarve in August!
Some highlights of entertainment in the Algarve in August not to be missed and minor detail (wink, wink) a nice private holiday villa!
5 Things You Absolutely Need for a Holiday to Portugal
When you are planning a holiday to Portugal, the first thing that strikes you is the tiring task of packing. If you have older kids with you they can manage their own packing. With toddlers and infants, there arises a confusion of what is important to carry and what is not.
There are a lot of things to pack apart from clothes which can get really hectic. You also have to keep in mind not to burden yourself or anybody else who is travelling with you to carry extra luggage. While on holiday in Portugal it is obvious you will carry with you souvenirs while coming back home. Hence the best tip is to travel light. For example, there is no need to carry 2 flip flops or 5 pairs of tees. I have listed below 5 important and most necessary items needed to pack for your holiday to the Algarve.
Quietly hidden amidst the rolling hills of the Algarve along the banks of the slow-flowing Arade river, with its peaceful atmosphere, Silves Algarve is one of the best locations in the Algarve to still experience authentic Portuguese culture. It has that contagious relaxed pace of life that will instantly throw you in a good holiday mood. You could easily spend your days just wandering through the cobbled streets, drinking a good Portuguese coffee in one of the many typical local cafés or sipping a wine from a terrace watching Portuguese life pass by.
Only in August, during the Medieval Festival, you are reminded of the glorious times when Silves was the capital of the Algarve, a major defensive stronghold and an important trading centre. During the ten days of the Feira Medieval, the rich and turbulant history of the city at the Moorish times is played by actors while the old city centre is transformed in the vibrant town it once used to be.
You can find all you need in Silves, three large supermarkets, a post-office, and enough to keep you busy if you like.
