Seen from the sea, the Algarve coastline is a succession of cliffs, oddly shaped rocks offering a variety of silhouettes, caves formed by the dialogue between wind and sea, great expanses of sand, and water exhibiting every possible shade of blue.
All along the coast are beaches of different shapes and sizes, with one to suit every taste. Large or small, calm or with small waves, deserted or highly popular, most of the Algarve's beaches proudly fly the EU's blue flag (synonym of quality of sand and water and also of safety), and you can count on the sun's presence all year round. Whether you want to laze in the shade of a parasol, swim in the sea, go underwater diving, do some angling, windsurf or jet-ski, the Algarve's beaches
are a guaranteed delight for all your senses.
But there are also other landscapes to be found in the Algarve, where nature still continues to live as it was always intended to. In the nature reserves and natural parks, the fauna and flora are a constant source of amazement for those looking to discover rare plants and flowers and elegant birds such as flamingos, storks and herons.
More than 30 breathtakingly beautiful Golf courses are a genuine paradise for even the most demanding golfer. The region's mild climate, with sunshine all year round, means that this sport can be played in every season, the silence only interrupted by the sound of a stroke being played or the singing of a bird.
