Play at The Beach and in The Sea

Southern Algarve is filled with either small secluded beaches or long rockless ones, but they have one thing in common: the sea is calm and flat, ideal for swimming, playing at the water, making castles in the sand or just taking a walk by the sea. If you go to western Algarve, chances it is windy and the waves are bigger, creating the perfect conditions for family surfing lessons or kitesurfing.
