The Algarve is noted for its stretches of beautiful beaches and with 280 days of sunshine in the year, this is one of the favourite holiday destinations for Europeans seeking a beach holiday or just time to chill out.
But, there is more to the Algarve than sun, sand and sea. In our Algarve Photo Gallery, we visit Vilamoura, Faro, the Sagres Peninsula, Cape St Vincent and Almancil.
See what these places are really like through our Algarve photo albums.
