Albufeira is the most popular and commercial resort of the Algarve, and this because it excels in everything you look for, in your holidays in Portugal. The beach is awesome, there are great activities to do and the lovely old town is full of restaurants, shops and bars. Despite the old town is still full of charm with its winding streets, unfortunately Albufeira has been ruined. The incessant flow of tourists have encouraged the cementing and building expansion.
The authentic Portugal: Burgau
If, for your holidays in Portugal, you also want to join the Portuguese unbridled nightlife, Albufeira is the ideal place. It allows people of all ages to have fun from sunrise to sunset. In addition to the restaurants where you can eat excellent fish, there are many locals, Irish-style, English and American pub. As you may have already guessed, we advise you that it is not suitable for those looking to experience the more traditional and authentic Portugal. For that purpose what we can advise is to reach Burgau, near Lagos. It is a quiet, relaxed village for most of the year, with a selection of restaurants and bars.
