The Algarve: Why Visit Now?

With the opening of Faro’s airport in the 1960s, the flow of visitors increased dramatically, putting the sun-drenched region of the Algarve under the international spotlight. Small fishing villages have since grown into bustling resort towns such as Albufeira and Vilamoura, and the accommodation choices are expanding. The same can be said about the culinary scene, which includes a mix of traditional restaurants and upscale spots like the recently-opened Vivant, Austa, or Numa. On top of that, you’ll also encounter handmade crafts, scenic trails, and regional treats like olive oil and medronho. - Joana Taborda
