Reviews Albufeira

Level 100
Overall rating: 6
Although the region is famous for its beaches, it has much more to offer tourists. From Largo Duarte Pacheco (the main town square), you can head to the Church of São Sebastião with its Manueline doorway. Also worth a visit are the Rua Bernardino clock tower (with its prominent iron bell) and the Museu Arqueológico with its Neolithic and Roman era artefacts. The young at heart can head to the Zoomarine, which is situated at Guia 8 km north of the town, and watch dolphins and seals entertain the crowd.
Albufeira also has an exciting nightlife; make your way to ... More The Strip, a chain of bars, nightclubs and restaurants which remain open till early hours of the morning. La Bamba and Mustang are two of the popular ones.
Guests interested in Portuguese seafood can satisfy their appetite with fresh fish cooked in traditional metal vessels. Tasty Lagosta (Lobster) and Sapateira (crabs) are also hot favourites here.

Albufeira is a picturesque town and tourist resort in a bay of the southern Portuguese region of Algarve. Located about 40 km west of the airport at Faro, the town has satellite developments and resorts like Montechoro and Areias de São João to its east.
Albufeira has hot summers and dry winters. The sea breeze from the nearby Mediterranean Sea moderates the summer temperatures. The average temperature ranges from 15°C to a progressively higher 28°C in July. The region also counts nearly 3,000 hours of sunlight in a single year.
The town has an estimated ... More 20,000 inhabitants, but in summers, this figure increases with the influx of tourists ready to experience an authentic Portuguese town with its traditional whitewashed houses and inviting Portuguese cafes.
