If you're looking for a slower paced sense of life while avoiding the overcrowded tourist centres, then the Eastern Algarve is for you. The long white beaches sit beside old towns with small village cafes and gelato shops, making this region one for those looking for an authentic and languid experience.
While the Eastern Algarve has the features of a cute and quaint region, it also offers stunning day trips and gorgeous resorts across the region. From visiting the Olhão Saturday market for fresh seafood and local delicacies to sunbathing on the Fuzeta beach between the Atlantic and Ria Formosa lagoon, Eastern Algarve offers a tranquil and stunning lifestyle.
