The beaches in Albufeira

The Algarve is known for its beautiful coastal areas and azure blue sea. Impressive rock formations alternate with mysterious sea caves and idyllic, secluded beaches. Albufeira, which has a number of excellent beaches, is just a 15-minute drive from Casa dos Ninos. All beaches have been awarded a blue flag, which means that the water quality is also perfect.

Water parks

There are three large water parks with huge slides, gigantic swimming pools and opportunities to relax: Aqualand, Slide & Splash and Aquashow. Nearby Slide & Splash is one of the largest water parks in Europe. You can either swim and sunbathe or get your adrenalin flowing by rapidly descending into the Black Hole in the pitch dark or sliding down the Tornado like a whirlwind. Tropical Paradise is designed for the little ones, a fascinating water world full of imaginative figures and attractions.


With its wonderful climate that allows you to play all year round and range of nearly forty golf courses, the Algarve is a true paradise for golf enthusiasts. Most of the courses are in protected areas with breathtaking views and offer different slope ratings. They are famed internationally for the quality of their infrastructure and the friendliness with which golfers are welcomed. Pine Cliffs Golf Course, Salgados Golf Course, Balaia Golf Resort and Vale do Lobo Resort are just some of the big names close to our B&B.

Nature parks

Beautiful protected areas with a huge variety of fauna and flora can be found scattered throughout the Algarve. The Serra de Monchique is a mountain range, with Fóia (902 m) its highest peak. Picturesque Monchique is the base for walks in the area. The valley is famous for its thermal baths and natural springs. The Ria Formosa natural park stretches along the coastline and includes lots of rivers, islands and sandbanks. The extensive estuary is a paradise for birdwatchers. Costa Vicentina is located on the western coast of the Algarve, an authentic coastal strip with beautiful natural areas, lovely beaches and colourful flower meadows.

Boat trips and dolphin watching

A number of cruises and boat trips depart from Albufeira and the surrounding area. Be sure to visit the incredible cave at the small beach of Benagil, one of the most impressive natural wonders of the Algarve. The round curves overlooking the ocean and the view of the blue sky through the hole in the cave roof give it a mystical, almost supernatural atmosphere. A boat trip to spot dolphins is another must!

Our Algarve tips

The Algarve is perfect for visits throughout the year. The beautiful flowers make March to November the best time for nature lovers. The first orchids bloom in March, when the temperature is already around 18 to 21 degrees.

Carnival has been celebrated in Loulé in February for 100 years and involves an impressive procession with floats, bright colours, feathers and scantily clad ladies. This spectacle attracts enthusiasts from all over Portugal and is well worth visiting.

Sagres is a popular place to see the last rays of the day. The lighthouse at the former fort is on the most southwestern tip of Europe. On the right, you can watch the steep rocks that turn red as the sun bids the day farewell. Bring a drink, take a seat and enjoy the spectacle.
