A destination of sun and sea, golf and nature, entertainment and peace, a holiday in the Algarve is an experience that awakens all the senses - and lasts all year round. If you're already thinking about your Algarve holidays in 2024, let us take you on a guide to the best of its coast. If not, let this article change your mind.   

Where to Visit   

Visiting the Algarve without visiting the region's capital is like going to the Vatican and not seeing the Pope. For this reason, the first suggestion for your holiday in the Algarve in 2024 could only be Faro. With picturesque streets that colour the entire Old Town, visit Faro Cathedral, the Estoi Palace Gardens, and take a photo overlooking the Ria Formosa.   

To eat in the city centre, try the typical "carapaus alimados" and finish off with a fig and almond "queijinho".   

In a more seaside destination, the golden cliffs of Lagos will take you on a paradisiacal journey. During your visit, take a boat trip to the caves of Ponta da Piedade and sample its famous seafood.  

To complement the Algarve's warm nights, there's no better place than Albufeira. With a vibrant nightlife, you'll find bars and discos to suit all tastes - indoor, on the beach and even themed. In contrast, you can also browse the local shops and listen to the street performers, whose musical magic will stay in your ear until you return home.   

If you'd like to learn more about the Arab footprint in the region, take the opportunity to explore Tavira, where the beaches are joined by a Roman bridge and a castle. At the other end of the Algarve, you'll find Silves, known as the home of Islamic and Mediterranean culture.   

Where to Stay   

In the heart of the Algarve, close to the A22 motorway, the Amendoeira Golf Resort in Alcantarilha is the dream destination for your holidays in 2024. Surrounded by 270 hectares of nature, it is among spacious apartments and villa for your holidays in the Algarve in 2024 that you will find a retreat of peace and comfort.   

In a privileged location, with activities for all the family and award-winning golf courses, discover some of the reasons to stay in one of the Algarve's best resorts here.   

Activities to Explore 

The Algarve is mainly known for its sun and sea tourism, with crystal-clear sandy beaches at every corner. Here, the sea also plays host to different water sports, such as windsurfing, kitesurfing, diving or jet skiing.   

And as all walks call for refreshing breaks, include in your itinerary the local and municipal markets of each Algarve town. Let yourself be inspired by the colourful vegetables, fresh fish, refreshing fruit and conventional sweets.   

Finally, relax with nature in the background and enjoy your favourite sport! If you're a golf lover, this is where you'll find peaceful and challenging courses, but above all award-winning ones. Since 2020, renowned magazines such as Forbes, International Living and Today's Golfer have highlighted the region as a dream destination for golfers, where golf courses in the Algarve are recognised for their quality. At Amendoeira, you can count on:  

  • the Faldo Course, designed by Sir Nick Faldo, is considered the "Best Golf Course in Portugal" by the 2016 World Golf Awards. With 6 598 metres PAR 72, get to know this course here.   
  • the O'Connor Jnr. course, which takes in lakes, palm trees and waterways in a tranquil oasis, to explore here.   
  • the Academy course, the only 9-hole floodlit golf course in Portugal, so you can play by starlight. Discover it here.
