How to Spend 2 Days in Albufeira

How to Spend 2 Days in Albufeira

A 2-day stay in Albufeira gives you time to discover the caves and coves of The Algarve coastline, dance the night away at a bar in the marina, and go off the beaten path during a countryside tour. Here’s how best to spend 48 hours in one of Portugal’s most popular holiday resort cities.

Day 1: Coastlines and Countryside

**Morning:**Devote your first morning to getting out on the water. Boat trips typically last just a few hours and reveal the sandstone rock formations and caves for which The Algarve coast is famous. With luck, you’ll also spot some of the bottlenose dolphins that call the Atlantic Ocean home.

**Afternoon:**Back on dry land, head out to the countryside to see a different side of The Algarve. Safaris by jeep let you tackle all different types of terrain and reveal the small villages and fruit plantations that most first-time visitors miss.

**Night:**After the sun sets, Albufeira Marina comes to life. Sample Portuguese classics such as piri piri roasted chicken or cataplana de marisco before toasting your first day with a cocktail at one of the many bars surrounding the marina.

Day 2: Food and Family Fun

**Morning:**Satisfy an appetite for adventure on your second morning either by going parasailing or renting a Jet Ski. Both of these extreme sports offer a different perspective of the coastline and come with the guidance of an expert instructor. 

**Afternoon:**Spend the afternoon enjoying some family fun at one of two nearby waterparks; choose between visiting Zoomarine, a waterpark home to marine mammals, such as dolphins and sea lions, or Slide & Splash, which features more than twenty slides and rides.

**Night:**Dedicate your final evening to the food and wine of The Algarve on a culinary tour. Depending on your preferences choose an experience that focuses on wine tasting or local specialties, such as seafood, fruit, cheese, and chocolate.
