Top Touristic Reasons to Visit Albufiera

Travel & Tourism
Whether you’re a beach lover, a student of history or architecture, an artist, or simply someone who wants to get away from it all, the ride from Faro Airport to Albufeira can be the beginning of a great adventure. Discover new worlds, dive into history, and have experiences that will last a lifetime—all in one trip!

Albufeira, located in the province of Algarve in Portugal, is considered one of the country’s tourism capitals for very good reason. Its kilometres of coastline, which is divided into 25 wonderful beaches, makes a great base for an easy walk through history, as well as other experiences that make for a great holiday.

Listed below are five of the many reasons you’ll want to get from Faro Airport to Albufeira as soon as you can.

Historical Sites

Its rich history dating back from the Neolithic and Bronze ages have gifted Albufeira with many wonderful monuments, architectural attractions, and other significant structures and sites. From the Phoenicians, Greeks, and Carthaginians, to the Moors who traded from the North African coast, not to mention the Christians who conquered it around the 12th century, there are plenty of important landmarks to visit.

You should start with the Clock Tower (Torre do Relogio), with its iron crown, definitely the iconic landmark of the city—in fact, you'll probably spot it as you arrive on the transfer from Faro Airport to Albufeira. You should also see the Chapel of Mercy (Capela de Misericordia), an Arab mosque transformed into a chapel in 1499. Other sites worth visiting include the Church of St. Sebastian (Iglreja de Sao Sebastiao); the city Parish Church (Igreja Matriz) with its Cross of Aviz; St. Ann’s Gate (Porta de Santana); the old castle wall; the old Military Battery on the top of the cliff; and the Chapel of Our Lady of Orada (Capela da Nossa Senhora da Orada) - especially if you are arriving sometime around August when the ‘Blessing of the Sea’ and a procession takes place as part of the feast day celebration.

Food and Drink

With all those kilometres of coastline, there’s plenty of lovely fresh fish and other seafood caught daily here – so it would be a crime not to take advantage of it. Also commonly on the menu are dishes such as chicken piri-piri and febras (thin slices of pork in mushroom sauce), as well as salads, omelettes, and the like. Prices are very reasonable, although they can vary depending on the type of establishment you choose to visit. Alcohol is also very inexpensive across the region – some say cheaper than in most countries. There is a wide variety of wines and beers to choose from so be sure to sample the local specialities.


Albufeira is famous for its beaches so there’s something for every taste. Take your pick from among long stretches of golden sands, dunes and hidden coves, coasts overlooked by multicoloured cliffs, and others—all you need to do is get from Faro Airport to Albufeira and this gorgeous region will do the rest. Fisherman’s beach in the old town is perhaps the most popular, but there are lots more Blue Flag and highly accessible beaches to choose from.

Lukas Johannes is a driver for Shuttle Direct. If you’re looking for a transfer from Faro to Albufeira, Shuttle Direct provide pre-booked shuttles to major destinations all over Europe. Wherever you travel, Shuttle Direct can make sure that you don’t miss your car on your holiday abroad.
