Well known resorts such as Albufeira
target family and golf travellers, whereas other resort areas such as Almancil
& Quinta do Lago
are seen as less busy alternatives which can be great if you are looking for something new and exciting.
Albufeira is a showcase tourist hotspot filled with friendly and authentic restaurants, cheerful bars, and souvenir shops throughout the day and night. Albufeira's famous "strip" is very much the spotlight for dining and evening entertainment. However, the old town in Albufeira boasts more of a traditional yet modern atmosphere including beach front restaurants, narrow winding streets, cafes and trendy bars.
Vilamoura on the other hand is more reserved and upmarket with many luxury Algarve villas and accommodation, resorts and restaurants. Popular amongst golfers due to the impressive golf courses and facilities and at the same time perfect also for family holidays.
