It's possible to visit a little bit of Algarve on a day trip from Lisbon, if you get up really early: we chose Albufeira - about 3.30 hours away. Albuferia has beautiful ochre-coloured beaches, clear green-blue waters, amazing caves and rock formations, a charming white-washed old town, many charming little white churches - and hundreds of really ugly modern white hotels and resorts all around. During the low-season it is quiet and pleasant enough, and if you can ignore the newer part, the landscape is truly amazing. You can walk along the beach for hours, or follow the coastal footpaths that climb up and down along the sea-shore.
