The Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region, is known for its golden Atlantic beaches and golf resorts. Whitewashed fishing villages on low cliffs overlooking sandy coves were transformed in the 1960s, and now its central coast between Lagos and Faro is lined with a lot of villas, hotels, bars and restaurants. The region’s western Atlantic coast and rugged interior are less developed. Algarve is your best bet if you’re looking for a dramatic coastline with its golden sands, and hidden coves worthy of a pirate’s treasure. Where to start but with a beach? The Algarve is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in all of Portugal, from long golden stretches of sand to little coves only accessible at low tide (or by boat).
