Car Class Recommendations

If you're a solo traveler or a couple, economy cars would serve you well in saving on fuel and navigating the narrow streets, while families or larger groups might prefer a spacious SUV or minivan.

Mobility and Traffic Rules

The Algarve's main roads are well-maintained, and most signs bear both Portuguese and English translations. Speed limits vary depending on the road: 50 km/h in built-up areas, 90-100 km/h outside of towns, and 120 km/h on motorways.

Beaches and Attractions

Blessed with a warm climate nearly all year round, the Algarve boasts some of the best beaches in Europe. Praia da Marinha and Praia da Rocha are just two must-visit locations. Beyond the beaches, don't miss the region's historical sites, such as Albufeira's Old Town and Silves Castle.

Landscape and Climate

Beyond the coastline, you'll discover vast orange groves, stunning cliffs, and charming villages. The Algarve boasts a Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and mild winters. The most rainfall occurs from November to March, so plan your beach trips accordingly.

The Algarvian Cities

Faro, the region's capital, offers a rich cultural experience, while Lagos is known for its vibrant nightlife. Tavira, on the other hand, is notable for its historic charm.

Country, People, and Currency

The people in the Algarve are friendly and welcoming, and while Portuguese is the official language, English is widely spoken. The local currency is the Euro (€), not Pound Sterling (£), so ensure to make the necessary exchanges before or upon arrival.

Seasonal Events

From the Carnival in February to the popular Festival Med in June, the Algarve hosts a range of events for every season. Be sure to check out the event schedule during your visit to embrace the local culture.
