The west region stretches along the coastline from Albufeira in the East to Lagos in the West. This region has many fantastic beaches in Carvoeiro, Alvor, Praia da Rocha and Lagos.


The east region takes in the area immediately East of Faro and runs along the coast as far as the famous Guardiano River. The main town in the region is the quaint town of Tavira, visiting this town will take you back hundreds of years to when the moors roamed the land. The architecture here has not changed and there is still clearly a moorish influence. If you enjoy fresh fish then you have come to the right region with some of the best examples of the daily catch on-sale in the heart of the town at the many bars and restaurants. The region also has one of the best summer attractions in Tavira island - just off the coast of Tavira this island has fantastic beaches and grilled sardines to die for. Sold already? Then you won’t forget that the region also has four good quality golf courses and one outstanding one in Monte Rei golf course, arguably the best and certainly one that has to be added to your 'must-play' golf tour list.


The Central Algarve region stretches from Faro Airport across to Albufeira in the West. There are numerous resorts and hotels which populate this main golfing area. There are great courses to choose from including the Penina Championship golf course and the Vale do lobo Royal golf course amongst others. 

Vale do Lobo

Located just along the coast from Quinta do Lago and some will also say the capital of opulence, it’s not quite Quinta but Vale do Lobo is also a popular resort area with some fantastic beaches and numerous restaurants. The resort is dotted with many multi-million pound residences, as well as plenty of Villas and apartments and of course the famous Dona Filipa Hotel.


Quite simply the golfing capital of this region with a fantastic selection of courses. The main area of Vilamoura is the marina where many of the Algarve's most popular hotels are located such as the Vila Gale Ampalius, Vila Gale Marina, Dom Pedro Golf, Crowne Plaza and Tivoli Marina to name but a few. The marina front has many restaurants and bars, a Casino and also four nightclubs as well. The best golf courses are Oceanico Old, Victoria golf course, Millennium and Pestana Vila Sol.


Slightly further West along the coast and a very popular resort for golfers from all walks of life. The town itself used to be famous for its New and Old areas, the new with its popular bars, restaurants and nightclubs and the Old with its quaint cafes, bars with Marina front views. Over the past ten years or so, the area has exploded in population and Albufeira has grown extensively to be the second busiest resort area - only outdone by Vilamoura.
