Algarve is the most popular tourist destination in Portugal, and one of the most popular in Europe. It is currently the third richest region in Portugal, after Lisbon and Madeira.

Tourism and related activities are extensive and make up the bulk of the Algarve's summer economy. Production of food, which includes fish and other seafood, fruit, oranges, carob beans, figs and almonds, is also economically important in the region.

The western Algarve is also known as “Rocky Algarve” due to the impressive limestone rocks dominating the coastline. Small romantic bays, hidden creeks and caves formed by the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, accessible only by boat, are surrounded by rugged rock formations. This scenario is interrupted by several large bays with sandy beaches.

According to World Travel Awards, Algarve is the Europe's Leading Golf Destination 2013 and 2014. There are over 25 top-class courses in the Algarve, most of which were designed by legendary names such as Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros, Jack Nicklaus and Christy O'Connor Jnr.

The Algarve is famous for its pottery and ceramics, particularly hand-painted pottery and azulejos, which are painted, tin-glazed ceramic tiles. There are numerous ceramics and pottery outlets throughout the Algarve. For working potteries and ceramics workshops the main, or best-known, pottery centers are located in the towns of Almancil, Porches and Loulé, but there are many other potteries and workshops in the Algarve region.

Algarve (from Arabic: al-Gharb the West) is the southernmost region of continental Portugal, on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.

Algarve Portugal ???????? Exploring the Algarve Region of Southern Portugal

A too short break in Portugal, to spend some time looking around the Algarve region. It was a time of some personal changes, and a time when it seemed appropriate to take a break from day to day life to figure some stuff out. I really REALLY loved Portugal. The people, the culture, the scenery, the lifestyle, EVERYTHING! And I will be back. But for now, I hope that you can take something away from this, fairly random, video, and as always, comments are always welcome and always answered.

Those few powerful words, from the great man himself, have been a guiding principle in my adult life. With a great weakness for Road Tripping, especially through the backroads of Europe and the great open spaces of Africa. I'm Chris, photographer and videographer, this channel documents my semi-nomadic lifestyle and exploration of new places & new experiences.

I'm not going to lie, I have a short attention span, so what's front a centre today might not be tomorrow. Life is short & the world is wide, and my goal is to live it to the full. Here, and on my other social media channels, I'll be sharing those adventures & places that I experience on this somewhat nomadic life journey.

Next up is a road trip, visiting all 11 #Africamps 'glamping' properties in Southern Africa. Bring on the adventure, the open road awaits!

Best Place in the World I | Algarve, Portugal

The Algarve from Arabic: الغرب‎, trans. Al-Gharb, meaning The West) is the southernmost region of mainland Portugal. It has an area of 4,997 square kilometres with 451,006 permanent inhabitants, and incorporates 16 municipalities. The region has as its administrative centre the city of Faro, where both the region's international airport (FAO) and public university (the University of the Algarve) are located. Tourism and related activities are extensive and make up the bulk of the Algarve's summer economy. Production of food, which includes fish and other seafood, fruit, oranges, carob beans, figs and almonds, is also economically important in the region. The Algarve is the most popular tourist destination in Portugal, and one of the most popular in Europe. Its population triples in the peak holiday season thanks to a high influx of visitors, and receives an average of 7 million foreign tourists each year. In total, including national visitors, almost 10 million people visit the Algarve annually.

The Algarve is currently the third richest region in Portugal, after Lisbon and Madeira, with a GDP per capita 86% of the European Union average

The Algarve is alluring. Coastal Algarve receives much exposure for its breathtaking cliffs, golden beaches, scalloped bays and sandy islands. But the letter 'S' (for sun, surf and sand) is only one letter in the Algarvian alphabet: activities, beach bars (and discos), castles (both sandy and real), diving, entertainment, fun...
Let's be frank: Portugal's premier holiday destination sold its soul to tourism in the sixties and never really looked back. Behind sections of the south coast's beachscape loom massive conglomerations of bland holiday villas and brash resorts. However the west coast is another story – it's more about nature and less about development.
And yet coastal Algarve is a 'drop in the ocean' for any visitor. The enchanting inner Algarve boasts pretty castle towns and historic villages, cork tree– and flower-covered hillsides, and birdlife. And the wonderful Via Algarviana walking track crosses its breadth.

Exploring the Algarve in the south of Portugal!

The Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region, is known for its Atlantic beaches and golf resorts. Whitewashed fishing villages on low cliffs overlooking sandy coves were transformed in the 1960s, and now its central coast between Lagos and Faro is lined with villas, hotels, bars and restaurants. The region's western Atlantic coast and rugged interior are less developed.

Portugal is a southern European country on the Iberian Peninsula, bordering Spain. Its location on the Atlantic Ocean has influenced many aspects of its culture: salt cod and grilled sardines are national dishes, the Algarve's beaches are a major destination and much of the nation’s architecture dates to the 1500s–1800s, when Portugal had a powerful maritime empire.

Portugal: Algarve Road Trip (Lagos and Tavira)

The first stops of my quick Portugal Road Trip was to the beautiful towns of Lagos and Tavira in Portugal's Algarve Region.

Lagos is famous for its incredible coastline and beautiful beaches. I stayed at the Canavial Hotel in Lagos, and it was the perfect location (not sponsored).

Tavira is one of the most beautiful towns I have ever seen. Whitewashed buildings with a river running right through the middle. The people of Tavira are friendly and laid back, and it's the perfect place to stop while you're in the Algarve region or Portugal.

Right next to Tavira is the small fishing town of Santa Luzia, which is the self-proclaimed capital of octopus! I had a dinner at Casa do Polvo (House of Octopus), and I must confess, it was the best octopus, perhaps even the best seafood, I have ever had. I highly recommend it.

The BEST CLIFFS of the ALGARVE Portugal

Exploring the amazing Cliffs of the Algarve!! In this video we visited 3 main cliff sites along the Algarve coast.

First the area around Benagil and one of the most famous, Marinha Beach and the double Natural Arch. Then we went to Lagos Lighthouse and walked the cliffs there. From Lagos we went all the way to the end of the road at Sagres at the furthest most south western point of Portugal and mainland Europe.

There are TON of other cliffs along the Algarve that we sadly we're not able to visit in this video. Honestly it would take years to explore them all. This area is so rich in coastal landscapes, it's amazing!! If you're travelling down here be sure to bring a camera because the photography opportunities are abundant.

Next up is a job filming here for a Kickstarter campaign and then the launch of the online course I've been working on the entire tim here in Portugal called 'Introduction to YouTube for Video Creators'

So stay tuned, they're going to be great :) See you next Wednesday!!

Algarve, Portugal: Lagos and Salema

More info about travel to Algarve: Lagos, with a jet-ski marina and a beach-party old town, is as enjoyable as a big-city resort can be.
