Things to do in Albufeira
Something's always happening in Albufeira, with many cheap, fun bars staying open until 4am. The city's nightclubs are concentrated in the Montechoro Strip area, around a mile from here; these attract a young, happy crowd, with everyone determined to have a good time. The great weather that the Algarve enjoys all year round certainly doesn't do any harm! Even if you're not normally a night-time person, relax and give it a chance – you might be surprised at how much you enjoy it.
Places to Eat in Albufeira
If you're tired after a hard night's clubbing, take a walk to Albufeira's Old Town. Centred on a shady, tree-lined square, this is a good place to find great offers in one of the resort's best shopping districts. It's a good place to pick up clothes and accessories, and there's also a range of street stalls which often offer fantastic deals on gifts. It's a fair bet that some of your friends will also feel like taking their holidays in Albufeira after seeing what you've brought home!
It's not all about nightlife on holidays to Albufeira from Ireland. You'll quickly appreciate that there are many exciting things to see within easy reach of the resort's apartments. Among the most popular things to do is to take a boat out into the harbour for a cruise. This is a brilliant opportunity to soak up the sun – though don't forget the sunscreen, as it can get pretty hot even in autumn – and to admire Albufeira's scenery with a cool drink beside you. You can also take a wildlife cruise in the hope of seeing dolphins or even whales.
Albufeira Beach Holidays
Those taking Albufeira holidays can visit Zoomarine Algarve, an excellent water park packed with rides, shows and restaurants. If you still crave more, then it's only half an hour to Quarteira, where the Aquashow Waterpark awaits. After all that, you may just want to lie back and relax for a while – so you'll be happy to know that holidays in Albufeira can provide that as well, since the resort has some excellent beaches.
