Portugal, Algarve – Region of Great Beaches, Cliffs, Lighthouses, and Caves
heading (paragraph): Others
Portugal's southernmost region offers beautiful beaches, majestic cliffs, charming towns, sights and great wine. In Faro, Portimao, Lagos, Albufeira, Olhao and Tavira there is a great atmosphere, attracted by the cliffs on the coast or national park. If you do not need to roll by the sea and want to enjoy a holiday without tourists, go there off season. Maybe just right now!
