Albufeira Mini Guide

The beautiful coastal city of Albufeira is a leading tourist resort in Portugal with a plethora of hotels, apartments, restaurants, cafes and bars. It has two main beaches, an attractive marina and a golf course. There are two main tourist areas, Areias de São João which is known locally as ‘The Strip’ and has a host of nightclubs and bars and then there is the more sedate Old Town which is more traditional.
 
Faro is the main airport and is just a 40 minute drive away from Albufeira centre. A train journey to Faro takes about one hour and to Lisbon takes 3-4 hours, although there is now a rapid train with a journey time of just over 2 hours but this service is less frequent.
