For those of you who are looking to get away from it all and enjoy a few days of peace and quiet, then the  Algarve is the place for you. It’s a beautiful area of Portugal that has some of the best beaches in Europe.

It is also known for its nightlife and bar scene. If you’re looking to get away from the kids for a few days, then here are some activities that you can enjoy.


Have a drink at a beach bar

Go to a beach bar and have a drink. The Algarve is one of the most beautiful areas in all of Europe, so take some time to enjoy the view. There are plenty of beach bars in the area, so you can have a drink with your friends or family while enjoying the sunshine.

Day and night, the beaches of the Algarve draw a crowd enjoying the views, food and party atmosphere. Whether for a healthy juice to start the day or for sundowners to start the night, there are some superb beach bars where you can wiggle your toes in the sand and shake your hips to the latest beats.



Go wine tasting

If you’re more into the wine scene, then you can head out to the vineyards and go wine tasting. The Algarve has some of the best wineries in Europe, and many tours will take you on a wine-tasting tour. There are many wineries in the area that offer tours and tastings, but you’ll want to make sure that you schedule this in advance as it can get a little crowded at certain times of the year.

Quinta  dos  Vales is the oldest Wine Estate in the Algarve and offers an array of wine-related activities: from wine tastings to tours, workshops where you can make your own bottle of wine (and take it home with you), gastronomic experiences of tasting meals with wine pairings and much more.



Embark on a boat trip

If you’re more into sightseeing, then you can go on a boat tour of the coastline. This is a great way to enjoy the beautiful views that the area has to offer, so make sure that you take advantage of this while you’re there. If you want to enjoy the Algarve, then this is one of the best ways to do it. The Algarve is known for its beautiful coastline, golden beaches and secluded sceneries – the perfect destination for a getaway.

Besides taking advantage of a boat ride to see the coast through another perspective – directly from the sea – this activity also allows for an amazingly romantic view: whale and dolphin watching. An opportunity of a lifetime that will stay in your memories forever.




The best beach clubs and bars in the Algarve are found in popular resort towns like Albufeira and Almancil. The region is famous for its gorgeous Atlantic coastline, with miles of fine beaches and golden cliffs. You can see for yourself how beautiful the view is from these popular beach clubs and bars. You can relax by the sea and sip chilled cocktails with chill-out music playing in the background before enjoying a romantic dinner. When the sun goes down, many of these venues turn into lively clubbing spots with DJs and live bands.

 NoSoloAgua  in Portimão, on Praia da Rocha beach, is famous not only for its sunset parties, but also as a party hotspot in the west Algarve with dancing, music and fun until late. There’s an all-day restaurant, beach club and pool club. The huge circular pool area is surrounded by day beds that overlook the ocean. NoSoloAgua has regular live music, sunset sessions from 4 pm, and dance-at-your-table parties.
