    Hi! We are arriving June 5th and have 3 nights to spend in the Algarve region! We are in out late 50’s early 60’s and still enjoy a lively atmosphere! Can you recommend any particular starting points on where we should stay and any other fun stuff to do!

      Hi Jeff,

      Albufeira is definitely a good place to go if you’re looking for a lively atmosphere, especially “The Strip.” I would say that Albufeira is probably the liveliest, but you could also try Praia da Rocha as well.

    Hi! We are planning to spend Christmas eve and day in the region ( but are flexible) and would like to know where we can find more of a “Christmasy” atmosphere. We are an active 60 y/o couple traveling with 30 y/o daughter and husband. I read somewhere that they have Christmas eve parties or bonfires at the beach, but can’t recall the featured area or the website I read it at. We speak fluent Spanish and our daughter speaks Portuguese.

    We are visiting between December 27th and January 1st. We would love a recommendation for dinner on NYE. We plan on eating around 9:00pm. Thank you!

      Hi Trina,

      Albufeira is a great place for NYE on the Algarve.

      A lot of restaurants will have special NYE menus, but… they don’t always make those menus available in advance. Take a look at TripAdvisor and see where you would like to eat and then contact them to see if they have a special menu for NYE.

      Some places mightn’t have their menus done yet, but there’s no harm in asking.

    I’m really enjoying your site and finding it very helpful. We are visiting in September. Is it possible to get a cab to take a person up “cardiac hill”? As mobility can be an issue are cabs generally easy to get ?

      Hi Kim,

      There are normally taxis and tuk-tuks (believe it or not) at the bottom of the hill. Uber is also available, but I think you won’t have any problems getting a cab.

    Hi there,

    What is the nightlife like around Easter weekend (this year is 10th April). I have seen mixed reports of “lively” and “ghost town”

    Would most of the bars be open New town or Old? Which area would you recommend to stay?

    We are a small group of friends 35-40 celebrating a birthday who want a good atmosphere ion the day and night time.

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Andy,

      It’s hard to say as it can often vary from year to year. The bars will be open in both the Old Town and New Town and, as towns on the Algarve go, Albufeira will probably be one of the busiest. I don’t think ghost town is accurate, but it’ll still be fairly quiet – at least in comparison to what it’s like in the summer.

      Both the Old Town and New Town have plenty of bars, but the ones in the New Town (the Strip) tend to be livelier. Although you can get taxis between the Old Town and the New Town, I would recommend staying in the New Town if you expect to go out a lot. It’s just easier than having to worry about taxis all the time.
