If you fancy a mooch around and a bite to eat, Albufeira Old Town is well worth a visit.

There are also some lovely museums and monuments to explore, including the 18th Century Church of Sao Sebastiao, or The Bell Tower, which is illuminated at night and can be seen throughout the town.
Albufeira is perhaps best known for its nightlife. There is an abundance of bars and clubs in The Strip and many of them open until the small hours. There are also many places to enjoy a quieter night out having dinner and drinks with friends in a more relaxed setting.
