The charming old centre of Albufeira has always been a very popular destination for tourists to the Algarve. Albufeira was once a thriving seaport and had its own castle that was unfortunately destroyed in the earthquake of 1755.

The town of Albufeira economic situation immensely improved with the advent of tourism to the Algarve and the construction of Faro Airport in the 1960s. For night entertainment in Albufeira there is a plentiful choice of bars, restaurants and clubs. To the east of Albufeira there is a road known as the 'Strip' lined with bars and places to eat. It has built an internationally reputation for its nightlife. Whilst on the west side of the town is the Boat Marina which provides a more sophisticated atmosphere with its many yachts and quayside bars and restaurants.

On the west side of Albufeira is the 18-hole Salgados Golf Course which is a 'Links' style of course and which includes many water hazards. There are also two well kept popular 9-hole courses on the east side of the town, the Pine Cliffs Golf Course and the Balaia Golf Course.

Salgados by David from United Kingdom
Good value course in excellent condition.
Salgados today was superb. Fairways and greens immaculate.
We wanted to stop half way for a drink and a snack, with the thought of rejoining the back nine after a half hour or so. We were advised however that this wasn’t possible due to how busy the course was. Wonder if a 15 min stop would be a good idea for all, especially on a hot day!?
