Albufeira is spread out rather than high-rise.
The town itself consists of "old" and "new" sections which merge
seamlessly into an extensive holiday-land suburbia, spreading off
back east along the coast to Balaia, Olhos d'Agua and Falesia, and
west to São Rafael, Galé and the links golf course at Salgados.
The whole area, greater Albufeira you could call it, is the most
tourist-intensive place in Portugal.
It has very little to do with the real Portugal, or with the real
planet earth for that matter, but people come here in droves and
have the time of their lives.
The main town of Albufeira is around a 15 minute walk .
The Infamous Strip is just 200 meters away.
Lots to do in the area including 5 water parks , Zoo-marine dolphin
park , crazy world , excursions , jeep safaris , golf courses by the
