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.

Nice course. Beautiful setting
Beautiful surrounding. Very flat. No buggy needed. Fast green. Being straight ov the tee makes your round of golf very pleasant 😃

Balaia by Marc Vranckx from Portugal
No rules, no limit, the power of money
We tried to play this nice and compact course. But there was no marshall to eject the group of young guys who were completely drunk ! Moreover they could buy more beers to take away with them on the course.
