Now that’s its time to make those wonderful New Year resolutions, perhaps its time to start with the ones you cherish the most. Of course, while you must not spend the year glued to your work top, no matter how sticky and strong the glue is, you must remember to take time out to develop your interests, do the things you like to do, spend time with friends and family, and above all – Treat yourself to that special holiday in Portugal away from all the cares of this world!! And whether it is the shimmering sands, exotic rocky cliffs or the tranquil tunes of the deep blue Atlantic you are after, consider Algarve in Portugal, the jewel in the crown of Southern Portugal. Even if you’ve been there before, Algarve Portugal has so many well – guarded secrets, that your journey of discovery can go on endlessly.
So, if you’re looking for wild, untamed beaches with powerful waves, then the beach of Arrifana, on the Costa Vicentina in Western Algarve Portugal, is one of the most gorgeous ones. Barriga is just as beautiful and worth exploring during your Algarve holidays. If you’re seeking smooth seas with vast, sandy beaches, you should visit the Sotavento region of Algarve Portugal, which is its eastern part. To experience the pleasure of living in an Algarve Portugal beach house on a secluded beach with miles of golden sand to stretch out on, you must explore the beach of Barril, on an island directly opposite Tavira in Eastern Algarve.
If you would not like to miss the distinctive golden rocks that have made Algarve Portugal famous, then you must rent your Algarve villa by the bay of Lagos and the beach of Dona Ana, in particular. Lagos Algarve holidays provide a wholesome experience of living in traditional Algarve villas and reliving history. At one time in the 15th and 16th centuries, long after the influence of the Celts, Romans and the Moors, Lagos enjoyed a golden age of discovery, with ships sailing to find new lands and trade routes from its port. Undoubtedly, Lagos has a combination of forts worth exploring and a rich maritime history. Above all, the highlight of Lagos Algarve holidays are the lovely walks along the seaside through the fascinating arches and tunnels carved out of rocks.
If you fancy an exciting nightlife, the lively atmospheres of Praia da Rocha in Portimão, Galé in Albufeira, Praia da Oura and Vilamoura would be ideal. There are many lovely villas in Albufeira Portugal and apartments in Vilamoura available for rent very close to all the action. Finally, if want to be with the ‘happening’ crowd, then take a trip to the beach of Ancão, between Quinta do Lago and Vale de Lobo, two of the finest resorts in the Algarve. The rustic simplicity of the Algarve villas, Algarve apartments and wooden restaurants in the Quinta do Lago and Vale de Lobo resorts only adds to the charm of this high end of beach life.
From the beach of Ancão, in front of Quinta do Lago, to the village of Cacela Velha, stretches an environmental treasure trove of peaceful waters, vast expanses of sand and beautiful pristine islands. This is the world of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve in Algarve Portugal. The peace and quiet of the calm lagoons is indeed a different way to enjoy your beach holidays in Portugal. Your Algarve holidays would certainly be incomplete without tasting the cockles, clams and shrimps caught fresh in the pots of the nurseries beneath the water, while chatting with the local fishermen.
