Leave land behind you, and spend time between the sea and the sky by parasailing in Albufeira.
Rent a jet ski or a motorboat and run up and down the coast at high speed. Or challenge your friends to cut through the waves on a ‘banana float’. But try not to fall off!
In Portimão, go canoeing. And throughout the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, you can glide through the water in a sailboat. Meanwhile windsurfing in such stunning surroundings does wonders for the body and mind.
At the Costa Vicentina, you’ll find the highest waves and, therefore, the best beaches for surfing and bodyboarding. The peacefulness of this unexploited area of the Algarve will stay with you.
Around the Vila do Bispo and Lagos area and in Vila Real de Santo António, drop your bait over the side and wait for a catch to round off a beautiful day spent on the open sea.
