Since I have been to Albufeira, Portugal 3 times now (and going back in a few months!), I thought I would help people who are going and need some tips about good places to eat etc…
but before I get into it, I will tell you a bit about the town of ALBUFEIRA.
Albufeira is a city situated at the very bottom of Portugal, in the region of Algarve. Algarve is the southernmost point in Portugal. The city’s population has quadrupled in size since the 00s and it is now home to around 50,000 people. It has became a popular tourist attraction for holiday makers.
The touristy areas are divided in two parts, ‘The Strip’ and ‘The Old Town’.
The Strip is a very nightlife oriented area, aimed for young adults, and is full of bars, nightclubs and karaoke clubs.
THE OLD TOWN
The Old Town is more aimed for families and people who aren’t so into the party lifestyle. In the middle of it, there is a square which usually will have some type of entertainment in it, may it be singers, puppeteers, dancers. But like the Strip there is also bars and restaurants, which would be more child friendly.
During the day, both of these places are lovely to go and have a walk around the shops and grab a bite to eat.
I feel like this may be a bit too long already, so I think that’s going to be it for this blog post! If you want to hear more about ALBUFEIRA, please send me a message on instagram and I will do a blog post on the shops and the beaches in the city. Thank you so much for reading and if you would like to see more from me please follow me on instagram @blogswithniamh!
