    Sun-soaked days in Albufeira

    Albufeira draws vacationers to its wide swaths of golden, sandy beaches, where sun-soaked days are spent lounging by the sea on the southern Algarve Coast of Portugal. Once a fishing village, the city now boasts a ton of amenities and family-friendly attractions along its colorful streets, from bustling shopping centers and tasty restaurants to golf courses, waterparks and zoos. When it's time to select your Albufeira vacation rental, you'll find an array of luxurious villas and cozy apartments await, many within walking distance of the best beaches, with sweeping views over the sparkling blue ocean and refreshing pools for cooling off on hot summer days.

    Get out on the water in Albufeira

    While it may be tempting to spend your entire vacation relaxing on the soft, sandy beaches of Albufeira, carve out some time to explore the waters beyond, where coastal vistas and a range of sea life await. Several tour providers are on hand to take you on catamaran cruises or high-speed boat rides, where you can admire the dramatic cliffs and caves along the spectacular coast line. When you get further out to sea, be on the lookout for the dolphins that swim in these waters. Some excursions provide an opportunity to jump in the sea for some snorkeling or paddle boarding, too.

    Uncovering the history of Albufeira

    Though the streets of Albufeira are now full of modern amenities, the town has a fascinating past, preserved at spots like the Municipal Archaeological Museum, which presents a collection of artifacts and exhibits from the prehistoric, Roman, Moorish and modern eras of Portugal. The remains of castle walls can be spotted in the city, but head just outside of town to see Paderne, a 12th-century Moorish structure, once built of mud and sandstone, with a centuries-old church and Roman bridge among the ruins. Pack a picnic and enjoy the hilltop views.

    Long summers in Albufeira

    Summers in Albufeira draw vacationers to the pristine beaches, where golden sands are perfect for afternoon naps and enjoying gorgeous sunsets over the sea. Temperatures rise into the 80s during the peak of summer, so refreshing dips in the ocean are a must. If you visit during this time, choose an Albufeira vacation rental with a pool for fun-filled afternoons spent splashing around with the kids. If you prefer to avoid the crowds, opt for a stay in spring or fall, as afternoons still average temperatures in the 70s during May, June and October.

    Hitting the beach in Albufeira

    Thanks to its coastal location, the local beaches are the best way to enjoy the outdoors in Albufeira. With a mild, year-round climate, there's no bad time to walk along the soft shores and watch the sun dancing on the waves. Falesia Beach's long strand of sand boasts a gorgeous backdrop of colorful cliffs in shades of red that contrast with the green ocean beyond, where you might spot sea creatures playing in the waves. Another popular spot, Fisherman's Beach, is just steps from downtown streets filled with shops and restaurants, and close to a number of Albufeira vacation rentals.
