Boasting some of Europe’s best sandy beaches, top golf courses, stunning scenery and year round warm climate, it’s easy to see why the Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost province, became the country’s most popular holiday destination! Along its 100 kilometre coastline, the beaches vary from small sheltered coves to endless stretches of sand and often flanked by stunning rock formations. Here are four great spots to visit in the Algarve, brought to you by Sunway.
