Larger places on the coast are the lively Lagos, Portimão and the popular resort of Albufeira with many bars,
restaurants and shops, Ferragudo with its fishing port is more picturesque;
along the small quay are some of the best seafood restaurants in the Algarve.
The Algarve has the most beautiful beaches in Europe where you can take a sunbath or make a nice marked cliff walk.
For the less experienced hikers, there are dune walks at various locations across ramps.
Take a look at the famous rocky beaches at the Praia da Rocha or Três Irmãos at Alvor,
take a boat trip to the sea caves or go dolphin watching.
From Silves, at the old Roman bridge, you can take a boat trip on the river Arade to Portimão.
