Best Places to visit in the Algarve Area

Hi there,

We will be visiting the Algarve area in late August. Our home base for the week will be in Carvoeiro. Our plan is to do day trips and see as much as possible in the area. What are the best towns/cities to visit to get a real feel of Portugal.

August is high season and the entire south coast (Algarve) will be packed with people.

Unless you go into the hills, behind the coast, I don't think you get much of a real feel of Portugal. The Algarve is a typical beach destination.

From Carvoeiro you can take a trip to Silves, to Monchique, to Paderne, to Loule, São Brás de Alportel (all behind the coast but it's not that far of a drive really).

You can also drive to the West Coast (Alzejur and up).

Have you already visited the www.visitalgarve.pt website? Under 'downloads' you'll find a wealth of information, including a monthly program which covers the entire Algarve.

Have a nice holiday!
