You

blueprint for the explosion of Padel’s popularity. With almost 1,000 courts in
operation, this popular game is all the rage amongst trend-setters and sporting
professionals alike, and is built on similar foundations to tennis. Always

though…)

throughout the year.

You could even take your fitness routine to new
heights – quite literally – with a cliff-top yoga session. Ponta da Piedade

cuisines from around the globe. Renowned Chefs have planted their marque with
food offerings to assuage the most discerning of palettes. 100’s of eateries

seafood on the beach to a romantic table for two or memorable family
celebration, fine fresh food is at its heart.

Hugely popular restaurants invite you to enjoy fresh
flavours in an unbeatable-setting overlooking the Atlantic Oce
an. Spend a
relaxed day or evening in Vale do Lobo at one of the ‘famous five’; Julia’s,
Izzy’s, Paradise Beach Club, Eduardo’s or Finn’s, firm favourites among locals,
holidaymakers and well-versed epicures are these oceanfront eateries along
Praia do Garrão where you can while away an afternoon down on the beach; and
bask in the sunshine while watching the waves lap the golden shore.


Fancy
something from one of the Algarve’s many fine
dining establishments? The Michelin Gala responsible for announcing the stars
attributed for 2022 resulted in a total of 33 restaurants across Portugal
receiving Michelin stars which includes six in the Algarve. Two restaurants,

Ocean and Vila Joya, received 2 stars each.


Villa
Joya is home to one of the Algarve’s most revered retreats. Interposed in the
heart of Albufeira, this award-winning resort is a hedonistic haven and a place
where complete and utter enjoyment is the order of everyday.



Newly
attributed stars went to A Ver Tavira, in Tavira, and Al Sud in Lagos.

The
Algarve’s reputation as a foodie destination has long been established in the
region. The abundance of quality, fresh and local produce, both from the sea
and the land, has enticed some of Europe’s best chefs to the region as well as inspiring a growing generation of
home-grown talents.

Vineyards

The
Algarve has bunches (pardon the pun) of vineyards dotted around its beautiful
landscape and thrive in its relatively dry climate. 2000 vineyards and 30 wine
producers occupy land in the Algarve and flourish off its fertile soil.

Rich
with life, this wine region merits some time unearthing its viticulture.
Familiarise yourself with grape varieties during an enlightening tour, and
taste the flavours of Portugal’s organic produce.

Nautical

The
Algarve is a hub for nautical activity and

orientated excursions await. From Amazonian-style escapades down both the
Guadiana and Arade Rivers to glamorous tender-to beach club affairs with the
likes of NoSolo Agua and Grand Beach Club, the Algarve is a haven, destined to
be explored by boat.

Have you ever received a personal escort by a pod of
Dolphins or swam in open water with a shoal of wild Tuna? Both activities are
available within easy access of Portugal’s Atlantic waters and provide a unique
experience that will create long lasting memories.

If a more adrenaline-fueled activity is more your
speed, why not try paragliding over the ocean on the back of a sports boat or
head your boat into one of the many caves that are darted along the coast.

the most popular aquatic sports to sample and jet skiing is abound with a
number of companies offering jet experiences all along the Algarve coast.
