Here you have a few ideas of things to do in the Algarve.
Boat Trip & Dolphin Watching
The Algarve has a stunning coastline with many hidden coves and caves to explore, such as the well know — Benagil Cave. You can take a boat tour to see the sights and visit some of the region’s beautiful beaches.
It is also a wonderful way to meet the aquatic wildlife, as you have many dolphin-watching tours available during the whole year. The Algarve region attracts an array of dolphin species, offering a unique opportunity for enthusiasts to witness these intelligent creatures in their natural habitat.
Dolphin-watching tours have become a popular eco-tourism activity in the Algarve, allowing visitors to embark on unforgettable trips, accompanied by expert guides who educate and raise awareness about dolphin conservation.
Private Yacht Tour
Sharing a boat tour with other tourists, hosted by a local guide who will explain everything about Algarve’s wonders, is already amazing. But the privacy and the comfort of sailing on a modern yacht with your family and friends is something else, right? Lose yourself in the deep blue sea, get that golden-salty tan, or visit the exclusive secret beaches the region has to offer.
And remember, stepping off a yacht in the Algarve opens a gateway to unforgettable adventures, from snorkeling in crystal-clear waters to indulging in gourmet seafood delights at waterfront restaurants.
Skippers always have the best tips, as nobody loves sailing life more than they do.
Another way to visit the coastline, with the plus of not skipping gym day, is a kayak ride. Besides the fact that you can pretty much access any place by the seashore, you can do it at your own pace and get really adventurous — keeping in mind that safety first is the ultimate mantra for all water sports.
The Algarve’s favorable climate, with mild winters and sun-drenched summers, makes kayaking a year-round activity, allowing enthusiasts to indulge in their passion and witness the changing seasons along the coastline.
You can do it with a guide, or on your own with friends, depending on what kind of experience you are looking for.
Algarve is definitely a surf destination for those who appreciate a chill yet active lifestyle. Most of the surf schools will provide all-level lessons, so every person, based on their personal experience, can have the best (and safest) time ever.
