The Algarve coast is without doubt one of the best places to explore in Albufeira Portugal. Here, the Mediterranean climate meets the waters of the Atlantic, this region is big enough to offer an endless diversity of beaches and coves, coral reefs and stunning sunset cruises.
Rent a boat in Albufeira and head west where you will reach Portimão in about 15 nautical miles. The town was historically a centre for fishing and shipbuilding, but today revolves more around tourism and leisure activities. Although the town, with its 56,000 inhabitants, is relatively large, it offers a more cosy and relaxed atmosphere compared to the tourist resorts in the region, as it is a town that has a large local population and relatively few tourists.
The town's restaurants and shops are authentic and affordable as they cater mainly to locals. Spend a day getting to know the town and be sure to try the typical sardines from the region! Stroll along the cobbled streets, and see the old traders and markets. There is so much to see and do, you could spend a full day here!
A beach day in Portimão is also an option. It has some of the best waves and crystal clear waters in the region. For experienced divers, Portimão's coast is also home to the Ocean Revival Park, with the largest artificial coral reef in the world, formed by old Portuguese Navy shipwrecks. Here's a tip for you!
Another 8 nautical miles west, and we discover the historic and charming town of Lagos. The town's harbour is large, practical and equipped with all the essential facilities for your boat hire.
Lagos is also one of the most welcoming tourist destinations on the Algarve coast, offering a rich history and amazing scenery. Like many towns in the Algarve, its history is based on the fishing industry, as well as being one of the main departure points for ancient Portuguese navigations.
From the Praça Infante Dom Henrique and the Slave Market, to the Municipal Market, Lagos' historic centre is well worth a stroll.
As a tourist, there are a number of different activities to do as the city offers picturesque beaches and a vibrant nightlife. Lagos' beaches, such as Praia da Dona Ana, Praia do Camilo and Ponta da Piedade, are among the most beautiful in the world, and it's not for nothing. Find crystal clear waters, clear sand and beautiful golden cliffs on your boat hire in Lagos.
If you choose to sail east from Albufeira, discover the paradise of Vilamoura, an exclusive resort with five different golf courses and a luxurious marina filled with shops, bars and restaurants.
Vilamoura is also unbeatable when it comes to beaches! Praia de Falésia is a 5 km long beach with golden sand, crystal clear, warm and calm waters. Then there is also Praia de Vilamoura which leads to the fishing port of Quarteira. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view!
The Ria Formosa is not just an option, but a must during your boat trip along the Algarve coast. If you sail an extra 13 nautical miles, you will reach this natural paradise. Declared a Natural Park in 1987, the Ria Formosa holds an incredible biodiversity, from seabirds of the region, marshes, countless islands and beaches, lagoons, and the largest community of seahorses in the world.
Beaches complete with services and hotel complexes are not common, instead what awaits us is rich wildlife, marshes and deserted islands. One of the islands, Culatra, also offers good places to anchor. In this small fishing community, time has stood still and the only means of transport to be found are a few 1950s-era tractors. The north side of the island is full of long, pristine beaches.
