With beaches, waterparks and a load of villas and hotels, family holidays to Portugal’s Albufeira keep everyone happy.
Take your pick of beaches
Book a hotel in Albufeira, and you’ll be within easy reach of a beach. There are 25 to check out, including the gently shelving sand at Praia do Peneco, the colourful harbour at Fishermen’s Beach, the rockpools of São Rafael, and watersports-friendly Praia do Túnel.
Treat the kids to tapas
For a taste of traditional Portugal, spend a night exploring the tight-knit backstreets of the old town, where tapas and piri piri chicken is king. Got a picky eater in the family? Albufeira is the restaurant capital of the Algarve, so there’s a whole range of friendly globetrotting eateries on hand.
Swing through Parque Aventura
If the children have energy to spare, head for Parque Aventura. This outdoor adventure park deals in rope bridges, climbing walls and zip wires, with a bit of paintballing on the side.
From soft sands to over-the-top waterparks — family holidays to Albufeira serve up plenty of things to do.
