Have you had enough of the long drawn out bleak and grey English winter, barring the few days of pearly snowy showers we had in December, notwithstanding the painful delays in flight and train travel it left many of us facing just before Christmas? At least now that the disruptive snowy spells are things of the past, its not folly to dream of places teeming with trees in blossom and marvellous sights, seas and sunshine! If that’s what you have always been longing for, its time to book your holidays in Portugal now! Algarve in Portugal is gorgeous right from spring to summer all the way to autumn. With all the festivities during Easter it might be a good time to visit Algarve Portugal, while combining it with a stay at an Algarve Portugal beach house close to the Atlantic. For action packed, reinvigorating holidays in Algarve Portugal, visit Tavira and Lagos.
Tavira Island is an enormous sandy beach with calm seas and great opportunities for water sports. You can get to the island, by boat from Quatro Águas or Tavira. Once you get there, you can try pedal boating in ‘gaivota’ pedal boats, or be slightly more adventurous canoeing or be super adventurous and thrill yourself with waterskiing, surf biking and windsurfing. If action packed waters sports are not for you, the why not just enjoy a peaceful guided boat trip around Tavira Island.
One of the best-known beaches in Western Algarve Portugal is Meia Praia, a four-kilometre-long stretch of sand running from the Lagos marina to the Alvor estuary. This part of the coastline of Algarve Portugal is gifted with tremendous natural beauty. The Algarve Portugal coastline is formed of unique cliffs with spectacular rocky formations overlooking the sea and many natural caves. During your Algarve holidays, you may choose to dive into the sea along this stretch from Lagos to Alvor, as it is known for diving. Holidaymakers in Algarve Portugal, with an interest in staying on the water surface may prefer pedal boating in ‘gaivotas’, kayaking, windsurfing, riding bananas or take a guided boat cruise.
Another popular boat cruise is one along the coast of Western and Central Algarve Portugal between the Albufeira marina and the Carvoeiro beach. During your Albufeira Algarve holidays, this is one cruise you must experience. The Albufeira – Carvoeiro cruise is both a mentally and visually stimulating trip, in which you would experience mysterious caves and huge rock formations that would leave you spellbound and, perhaps, take a refreshing swim, en route. On the return journey, the boat shifts away from the coast in the attempt to spot dolphins swimming playfully!! Fortunately, it is easy to find holidays rentals in Portugal, be it an Algarve Portugal beach house, villas in Albufeira Portugal, Algarve apartments in Vilamoura or Portugal villas for rent in Lagos, Carvoeiro or Tavira, through Owners Direct Holidays Rentals.
