Albufeira - Essential Travel Information

Travel & Tourism
Albufeira is truly a beautiful sight to behold; with its steep streets and villas dramatically staggered across its hillside it charmingly resembles a North African seaside community. This large, bustling resort town sits above a sickle shaped beach, presenting an alluring view to visitors. But a visit to the town will soon reveal there is more to it than just another perfect getaway destination.

Why Visit?

The most convenient way to visit the town is to take one of the Faro Airport to Albufeira transfers, which is especially ideal for people travelling in groups, those with kids in tow or when lugging sports equipment. While Albufeira may not be your usual European route, it has certainly proven to be worth the trip as many happy tourists readily share.

Behind its rugged beauty, the town has a very colourful and fascinating history. It survived a number of devastating earthquakes in the past, with the worst recorded occurring in 1755. Then, in 1833, it was besieged and later burned to the ground at the height of the Portuguese civil war. It was not until the 1970s the town slowly recovered, with investments coming in which transformed it to what is now recognized as one of Europe’s most sought-after beach resorts.

Today when you visit, you will be regaled with the fascinating melding of the old and new. What was once a tiny fishing village is now a popular tourist attraction. However, there are still parts of the old town that have valiantly clung to the past, complete with cobbled stones that wind up and around its hillsides. The modern areas are peppered with bars, restaurants, shops and cafes, and some effervescent nightlife can be found in São João.

Getting there

While there are many routes leading to the town, when flying in it is generally best to book Faro Airport to Albufeira transfers so you can ensure the journey is as enjoyable as the destination. By road, air or rail, the town is well connected and accessible through the city of Faro, which is about 25 km away. The city is the gateway to many destinations in Europe and its airports have regular flights to Italy, UK, Germany and Holland. There are 14 flights every day coming in from the UK during the peak tourist season, so you have plenty of options when making arrangements for Faro Airport to Albufeira transfers.

Best Time to Visit

Of course, summer is always the best time to visit and explore this lovely seaside resort. The peak season is between July and August, when tourists can bask in the warm weather and take advantage of 12 hours of sunshine. Although it is hot, the coastal breeze helps keep the temperatures bearable.

Despite the small size of the town you will find plenty of activities to keep you busy. The beaches, of course, will always remain the primary attraction; if you want some action, there are a number of water sports you can engage in such as scuba diving, windsurfing, water skiing, snorkelling, jet skiing, sailing, fishing and so much more. For optimum ease and comfort on your holiday, make sure you book your Faro Airport to Albufeira transfers as soon as you have secured your plane tickets.
