Along Portugal's southern Algarve region sits Albufeira, a city boasting 20 beaches for visitors to choose from.
Change things up with these side-trips from Albufeira: Lagos (Scuba & Snorkeling & Ponta Da Piedale), Percurso dos Sete Vales Suspensos (in Lagoa) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Olhao). There's lots more to do: find something for the whole family at Zoomarine Algarve, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, get your game on at Hot Wheels Raceway, and enjoy the sand and surf at Praia Da Rocha.
