Albufeira is a modern, clean town, nothing much to see of interest. The beach area is very clean and well maintained.

The Old Square is really a highlight.Sit and people watch anywhere and enjoy a cocktail or two while the sun sets.After that head for dinner in any of the local restaurants.There afe many to chiose from.You wont be disappointed.Head on to Bar Street just off the square and take in a live band.When we stayed,kn two nights the bands had set up on the street itself.Punters from 4 different bars were able to enjoy the music and crakc as well as have a little boogie.While we wdre there in June,plenty of parents were passing through with kids in buggies.Safe as houses.No real stag/hen activity and what there was was definitely mannerly.I will be back.

A really beautiful town with old, traditional buildings and cobbled streets. It’s full of souvenir shops and a great variety of restaurants and bars. The only downside was the graffiti, which was in reference to Portugal drug dealers, which was scribbled over several different walls!
