algarve portugal

The Algarve region in southern Portugal is the perfect place to visit all year round.  With warm temperatures even during the winter months, there are some great fitness activities you can enjoy in the sunshine, and end your days in some relaxation time and pampering.

Spanning from the beaches on the Atlantic coast towards the more inland Portuguese towns and luscious green hills, there is some fantastic hiking on offer or for beautiful coastal walks, head to the unspoilt and breath-taking west coast where the only thing you might stumble upon is a surfer.

The area is also home to some very well-known golf courses and is one of Europe's premier golf destinations with over thirty 18 hole golf courses to choose from.
