"Albufeira, Portugal" Albufeira by SWFC_Fan

Albufeira Travel Guide: 363 reviews and 685 photos


Albufeira is the largest resort along Portugal's algarve coastline.

It is apparently overrun with tourists in the summer months, but it is a great place to visit for some winter sunshine.

I visited in February and was fortunate to experience a week of spring-like weather, which was perfect for walking on the amazing beaches and soaking up the sun in one of the many outdoor cafes.

Before its success as a tourist resort, Albufeira was a fishing village and the fishermen still unload their catch on Fishermen's Beach early each morning.

    Definitely some great beaches along the Algarve! We never quite made it to Albufeira, but were not far away in the Porches area to the west.

    Thank you for your forum reply about Albufeira. Hope it will still be nice and quiet on 1 April as we are looking forward to the walking along the coast.
