Golf courseAlgarve is also famous for luxury resort & hotel spas by the beach.
In the 1960s the Algarve became a very popular destination for tourists, mainly from Britain. It has
since become a common destination for foreigners. Many of these tourists own their own property in the region. There are Algarve-based English-written newspapers specifically addressed to this community. In addition to the natural beauties and plenty of beaches, the Algarve has invested in the creation of a network of golf coursed.
Everywhere you go, you are surrounded by bright colours, from the golden sands, to the crystal clear
waters, the clear blue skies, the vivid green grass, and the white-washed walls of the buildings in the
Algarve's old towns.
Think of the Algarve and you think of sunshine breaks and relaxing holidays. You imagine golden beaches on the coast of calm sea waters, sun-kissed tourists relaxing and sampling the delights that this wonderful region of Portugal has to offer.
Golf During the 1970’s and 1980’s and on into the first half of the 1990’s, golf courses appeared all along Portugal’s southern coast. Although none of the existing courses are more than 15km from the coast, the terrain varies from the steep hillsides to the near sea-level flatlands.
Golf courseThe Algarve countryside is now filled with verdant oasis at each of the golf complexes
thanks to large, state-funded water catchments and distribution schemes, as well as private boreholes which tap into subterranean water sources for irrigation.
You will find that the Algarve, with its mild climate, reasonably priced restaurants, breathtaking
scenery, friendly people and excellent golf courses, all combine to make it a place to remember.
