The Algarve is situated in the most western part of Europe and as a result, it gets a lot of great weather. Anyone who is looking for an affordable, sun-filled, action packed holiday, should really consider Algarve holidays as they really are hard to beat on all counts.
Algarve holidays are perfect for beach bums who love nothing more than spending their holiday relaxing on the beach with a book, taking the occasional dip in the sea. The quality of Algarve beaches is hard to beat with their stunningly clear turquoise seas and white sand. They are a retreat for the weary who need to recharge their batteries.
You simply cannot mention Algarve holidays without talking about the golfing opportunities. The Algarve is something of a golfer’s paradise, with many excellent golf courses dotted around the area. If you are a golf enthusiast, then you really should look into the many holiday resorts which have their own golfing facilities, however, there are many non-resort greens which are of the highest standard too, so if you just fancy a quick game you should have no problems in improving your swing in the sunshine.
No matter what time of year you choose to book your Algarve holidays, it is likely that you will find the weather to be clement. In the summer months, the weather gets extremely hot and in the winter time, the island is at a more manageable, warm temperature which is very pleasant indeed.
When you take Algarve holidays if there is one thing that you simply must sample, it is the fresh fish which is caught daily by the local fishermen. There is no shortage of fine fish restaurants, where you will sample the freshest fish you are ever likely to taste.
With so many great beaches around, it is not surprising that the Algarve is a great place to try out some water sports. As well as a fantastic water park which is great for the kids, there are opportunities to surf, jet-ski, windsurf and more.
As you can see, Algarve holidays really do have a great deal to offer the average family and with packages to the Algarve so cheap, it really should be one of the first places you visit this year.
