5 Active Breaks In Portugal’s Beautiful Algarve

Cycling in the Algarve

Yes, you can slump in the sun lounger with a pre-dinner cocktail – but that’s not until the evening. In the meantime, get out there and make the most of everything the Algarve has to offer. You’ll find there’s plenty…

Everyone likes to relax on holiday but one of the best ways to unwind is to throw yourself into something active, and in the beautiful Algarve there are so many options, visitors to the region will be spoilt for choice.

Here are five top activities for a memorable Algarve holiday.

1. Diving

The Ocean Revival Project is unique – four warships were deliberately sunk to create the world’s largest single artificial reef structure. Teeming with marine life, it’s a whole new world waiting to be explored.

2. Cycling

The south coast is one of the jewels in the Algarve’s crown – and you can cycle the entire 150-mile length of it on the Ecovia cycle path, with fabulous views the whole way, you will struggle to keep your eyes on where you are going.

3. Surfing

Surfing conditions to suit people of all abilities can be found along the Algave coastline and there are plenty of packages and surf schools available. Jump on board the Algarve Surf Bus for a day trip to discover Costa Vicentina and the mecca of Surfing at Praia do Amado. Go on, catch that wave!

4. Golf

Voted Europe’s number one golf destination by professional golf tour operators, the Algarve has a wonderful variety of courses from which to choose, including award-winning resorts and championship courses.

5. Walking

Winding through the Algarve mountains, the Via Algarviana stretches nearly 200 miles from Alcoutim to Cabo de São Vicente, with scores of beautiful sites of natural and scientific interest along the way.

That’s just a small taste of the fantastic outdoor adventures on offer, but there is so much more to do, and the weather’s always kind. Boat trips through the Natural Parks, go-karting, horse riding, kite-boarding, rock-climbing, nature trail walking, exploring the famous cork route or even birdwatching– it’s up to you.
