Arrival and departure
And last but not least, even the arrival and the departure are good reasons to invest in the Algarve.
Flights take only about 3 hours, so the Algarve is only a short hop away, and there are daily flights.
All of the well-known car rental companies operate at the airport and you can get great car hire deals.
A paradise for golfers. At present there are 34 golf courses in the Algarve, some with stunning sea views.
All difficulty levels are represented, from the professional facilities such as Pestana up to the Family Golf without handicap such as Vale de Milho.
Nowhere else in Europe you will find such a variety of courses.
Europes most beautiful beaches are in the Algarve.
The Algarve offers a great variety of breath taking beaches and spots by the sea.
In the east you will find sandy endless beaches that are ideal for families.
The most beautiful beaches are in the southwest. There you will find small beaches hidden between the steep coastline. These beaches are often difficult to find and therefore off the beaten tourist path.
The beaches to the west are more suitable for adventurers and surfers. They are very spacious and often shielded by up to 100 meters high cliffs.
The Algarve boasts a magnificent all year round climate, with over 3,000 hours sunshine a year and clear blue skies for most of the year!
Algarve weather averages 12 hours of sunshine a day in the summer and 6 hours in the winter.
Despite being on the Atlantic coast, the Algarve has a Mediterranean-like climate with mild winters and long, hot summers.In July and August the Algarve does benefit from light sea breezes which cool things down a little! Nightime temperatures rarely fall below 18°C and are normally still in the low 20's.
