General Question

by JSalvatore

Hey,

Sx mates and i (17/18) are going out to Albufeira June/July 08 and just wondered if anyone had like some general insight into the area, if there is any surfing nearby? and aparently there's a karting track somewhere nearby? any answers would be greatly appreciated

Hi,
There's lots of surfing all along the Algarve but particularly around Lagos- you can probably get a bus from Albufeira to there. There's a karting track in Almancil which is about 20 minutes away but I'm not sure about in Albufeira itself. When you get there you'll find lots of agencies offering different trips and sports so you should be able to get most places and try most things. I saw a website the other day called Portugal sport and adventure or something like that that had lots of information on about this sort of thing maybe google it.
Have fun

Albufeira wonderfull city to stay , algarve´s heart , no surf around but plenty of watter sports on the beaches,if you need transfers from faro in a minibus for the lot of you use algarvetransfersdirect.com , affordable and reliable transfer company or faroairporttaxis.net , just do not use paradise tours you just get ripped off.

regards

Just to confirm that the nearest kart track is at Almancil. It has a website at
http://www.mundokarting.pt/karting/uk/default.asp

To get any surfing you will need to go to the far west around Sagres and Lagos or even the west coast beaches - the sea here is very quiet in summer! That though is around an hours drive or more away, so unless you have a car or can hire a mini-van you won't be in much luck. There are buses Albufeira - Lagos but surfboards hardly welcome!

Do a Google search on "Algarve Surf" and you will pull up an number of websites that might help.

Other than that, with over 200 bars to choose from and wide sandy beaches you won't have much trouble finding things to do. And it will be hot!

Travel Tips for Albufeira

confesion box telephone

by Carmela71

When I was a child I was used to see this confession boxes at the Catholic churches, so I was very surprised the first time I saw a ¡§guiri¡¨ doing photos of one, later I was told all religions do not have them ƒº kids we are very innocent hehehe.. but I promise I had never seen one as a telephone box!

Zoo Marine

by mcb

We spend a wonderful day watching dolphins, seals, sharks, turtles, exotic birds, seabirds, alligators and tropical fish.
You pay a day ticket and see all show, great shows.

You can even interacte with dolphins, go to water with them, extra pay...

Zoo Marine is a place you can't forget... i didn't.
Going back soon.

Jeep Safari

by Paisleypaul

The jeep safari will be bookable with any of the holiday companies or independents along the strip or the main drag .
You will have the chance to try before you buy on independent distilleries' agua del fuego 'firewater' liquer and home made jams - including tomato !

A chance to see some of the countryside in an (approximately!) organized sort of way, couldhave abridged our lecture on cork trees though !

(adding to this shortly)

"And we finish off..."

With a swim at this kind of canal / lock .... didn't look tooooo hygienic, deterred the other half but not me !
