Albufeira, Portugal

Updated on March 10, 2015

Visting Albufeira, Portugal.

Albufeira city (once fishing port) is a lovely place with cobbled streets, authentic Portuguese food (try fish & the chicken piripiri sauce) and beautiful beaches and warm sea water.

There are plenty of restaurants, music bars and souvenir shops. Nightlife is booming and it's a child friendly city.

Loads to explore! I invite you to visit Albufeira through my pictures! Enjoy!

Zoom in and find your resort. - I found mine...
