Algarve Low season holidays - Take a break while others work

Have you thought about innovating in your vacation choice? What if this year you book your vacation for the low season? Get to know all the benefits of resting while others work.

 

 

Algarve Low Season Holidays

 

 

The Algarve wins on the number of sunny days comparing to the rest of the country. On average, in this region, the sun appears 300 times per year. In this way, the weather invites you to go for a walk, or to do exterior activities, all year. In the winter or mid-seasons, the number of visitors is considerably lower compared to the summer.

From this fact we can take some benefits, such as the reduced traffic lines, fewer people in leisure or sports activities, the level of stress is low for the visitor and for those who work in public attendance, among others. Perhaps the most relevant thing is the low prices for travel and accommodation.

Knowing now all these points that make your holidays even more special, get to know activities of interest in the Algarve region for the low season.

 

Wine tasting

Portugal is known for its excellence in wines. The Douro and the Alentejo wines are the most famous internationally. Slowly, the Algarve wines are marking their presence on Portuguese and international tables.

Embark on the Algarve wine tasting experience, there are many wineries to choose from. We leave six options of wineries that provide visits and wine tastings:

  • Quinta de Tor – Tor, Loulé;
  • Quinta do Francês – Silves;
  • Cabrita Wines – Silves;
  • Winery Convento do Paraíso – Silves;
  • Quinta do Morgado – Alvor, Portimão;
  • Monte da Casteleja – Lagos;

 

Surf

Are you a wave enthusiast? Know that in the Algarve there are several beaches destined for this sport. Before getting your feet wet in the Atlantic Ocean, see if the sea is proper for the practice of this sport, in this website. If you don't know how to start learning about this sport, go to the various surf schools in the Western Algarve.

Meet the best beaches for surfing:

  • Arrifana – Aljezur;
  • Amado – Carrapateira, Aljezur;
  • Castelejo – Vila do Bispo;
  • Beliche – Sagres;
  • Tonel – Sagres;
  • Zavial – Raposeira;

 

Beach Bars

Beach bars are not only spaces for summer. In the winter, these bars are great for sitting down and drinking a warm drink or even a cocktail. The beaches are empty, and the sea gets new colours. Experience the beach from a new perspective.

We have some tips on bars in Lagos town:

  • António – Praia de Porto Mós;
  • Camilo – Praia do Camilo;
  • Campimar – Porto de Mós;
  • Café do mar – Praia da Batata;
  • Linda the Beach Bar – Meia Praia;
  • Bahia Beach Bar – Meia Praia;

 

Karting Track

Do you like speed and have some skills with the steering wheel? Know that in Portimão you have a go-kart track with 1,531 meters and 8 meters wide. Put your foot on the throttle to 161km/h. Get more information through the website of Kartódromo Internacional do Algarve.

 

Trip to the neighbouring country

If you want to change your mind a bit, take advantage of the fact that we have our neighbour country, Spain, a few kilometres away. If we told you that inside Spain you could visit a little bit of the UK? In one day, you can visit Gibraltar, with the orientation of a tourist guide, and return on the same day to your starting point. The most negative point of this trip is the time you spend inside the bus until you reach your destination. Otherwise, be prepared to be surprised by the magnificent views of Gibraltar. Follow this website for more information.

 

Casinos

Put all your skills and luck to the test in the three casinos of the Algarve. You can find the casinos on Praia da Rocha in Portimão, Monte Gordo and Vilamoura. In the Solverde casinos, you can find several games such as the Portuguese Dice Game, American Roulette, Black Jack or Poker Texas Hold’Em. There are a considerable number of slots available in all of them to give your holiday a taste of victory.

 

Michelin Restaurants

After victoriously leaving the casino, nothing better than trying one or more restaurants with the famous Michelin star, present in the Algarve. There are eight of them, and many with inspiration from Portuguese food and especially from the products that the Algarve offers.

The awarded restaurants with this distinction are:

  • Vila Joya – Praia da Galé, Albufeira;
