Top 10 Summer Activities in the Algarve

Summer is coming and one of the best places to spend it is in the sunny happy Algarve, so let’s look into the Top 10 Summer Activities in the Algarve together!

The Algarve is for the most part regarded as an excellent seaside attraction, so it’s probably not surprising that aquatic activities rank first among the popular activities available in this part of Portugal.

Surfing and Scuba-diving are our first suggestion of things to do, especially if you are a sports fan. You can find excellent schools in Lagoa, Lagos, Alvor, Albufeira or Portimao, to give just a few examples.

The Atlantic Ocean is home to an impressive marine life, so whale and dolphin watching is another great experience you shouldn’t miss. Boat trips in Alvor, Faro, Lagos and many other places should also make your list.

Bulldog Buggies are also an unexpected choice and provide an awesome off-road safari experience. Explore the valleys and hills, the winding tracks and the riverbeds of the Algarve building unforgettable memories while riding these funny and practical vehicles.

Horseback riding is a popular outdoors activity for a great deal of people. Real Picadeiro is just one of the places where you can come close to these magnificent and gentle animals.

Apart from spectacular sightseeing during the long walks around the Algarve seashore, you can also visit the Lagos Zoo (Parque Zoologico de Lagos), where you can admire exotic animals and spend quality time with your friends or family. Needless to say, this is an amazingly gratifying experience for children, who will be thrilled to know they can even pat some of the tenants of the happy Portuguese Zoo. All in all, this will surely be a great day outdoors, taking in the sun and fun of the Algarve.

Next in our Top 10 Summer Activities in the Algarve, we will examine some enjoyable things to do for the less adventurous of you. For instance, you can treat yourself to a day or a whole holiday of pampering in an exotic spa. Aromatherapy, massage or skin treatments are in store for you, as well as swimming pools and gyms, and the offer is plentiful.

Algarve is also one of the capitals of golf, housing the best golf courses in the world, such as: Millenium, Pinhal, Morgado, O’Connor, Vale do Lobo and many others, so there is an entire industry centered around golf club hire and golf transfers. So if golf is on your list of new things to try out, the Algarve is the place for you.
