Albufeira is a charming town with mixed architecture styles. There is an old town and a new town. In the old town there are plenty of places to sit with port wine in the square enjoying people and the whole atmosphere. If you walk arround the cobled streets you discover new views in every corner. The beach is wonderful both for relaxing and for long walks. There are also many nice restaurants, not noble but with excellent food. There are a lot of good musicians in the town that perform either in the bars or outside, a lively atmosphere everywhere.
Soft golden sand, and plenty of room to set down your towel and relax.
There are areas of the most popular beaches, like German Beach, or Eulalia Beach , there are sunbeds and beach umbrellas laid out, for hire.
Albufeira has a new harbour with an extraordinary modern architecture and many bars and coffe shops, just to hang around, to get on a sailing trip or just to have a drink.
If you have no specific program, a good idea is walking around in the centre of Albufeira Old Town or to go to a street full of Bars in New Town, called strip. Each bar and restaurant has a performance, with live music.
