The Western Algarve stretching from Silves to the Western Coast line is well known for its rugged coastline, fabulous beaches amazing cliff top walks and it’s many sea life attractions. From deep sea fishing, dolphin watching, cave tours to the more traditional jet skis and para-gliding for some this is the more adventurous side of the Algarve.
Lined with many of the most fabulous beaches not just in Portugal, but anywhere, nestled in between orange tinted cliff faces and connected by caves that can only be reached at low tide it’s no wonder there’s an excitement from visitors and locals alike along the Western edge of the Algarve.
Many small fishing villages have dominated the tourist game here for years Carvoeiro, Alvor and Praia da Luz the most popular. Small beautiful and traditional villages with immaculate beaches great local atmosphere and lately more ecliptic bars and restaurants to appeal to all kinds of visitors.
As well as these smaller holiday style villages, you have the big more commercial centres in Portimao and Lagos. Both offering fantastic shopping areas, beautiful beaches and great nightlife too.
These areas are excellent for property investment although like most areas of the Algarve, in recent years new build is in limited supply. However, there is a good supply of resale properties offering great value for money.
