Albufeira is absolitely PACKED on New Year's Eve. Last year it was estimated 85,000 people were in the town centre on NYE. I was working in a bar and most of them were inside! Tens of thousands come down from Lisbon and the north for a couple of days of celebration.

There is a free outdoor music concert on the beach from 10pm, fireworks at midnight and another headline band (last year it was UB40)comes on at 1230. Every bar and restaurant will be open. There was a bit of trouble last year with a gang trashing a bar but on the whole it is fairly peaceable, despite the numbers.

We have been lucky with the weather the past two years, the year before that it was a bit foggy and drizzly.

We are going back for our third consecutive New Year in Albufeira - we love it! The Christmas lights in the square and streets are beautiful. It does get very, VERY crowded on New Years Eve when everyone comes in for the fireworks, which can be seen right across the bay. Our advice is to find a good vantage point to watch and then come down to the beach afterwards for the music. Madcon (Beggin) are playing on the beach this year. Last year the weather was not very good, the year previous we sat on the beach every day from 27 Dec thru 3 Jan! It gets cold in the evenings so take a big coat, hat, gloves and scalf. We can recommend the Casa Da Fonte on the steps of the tunnel to the beach - they have a cosy fire and fabulous food. Hope you have a wonderful time. Hope this helps :-)

Travel Tips for Albufeira

Lovely beaches

by bugalugs

Albufeira has a nice beach, but at the weekends it is packed as local people relax and soak up the sun also.

But there are some lovely beaches, tiny coves all along this coast.

On the way north out of Albufeira we had only gone about a quarter of a mile and we turned left torwards the sea and found some lovely quiet beaches.

Explore and you will be surprised. One tiny beach even had a small restaurant with a verandah where you could sit outside, have a meal and a drink and watch the sun go down. It is was lovely.

In the best place

by solopes about Cafe Oceano

Usually, I skip restaurants in first line of the beach; some of them sell views instead of food, some other include the "view tax" in the invoice.

This time I accepted the risk, and choose a restaurant by the sea, in the old fisherman's beach.

Well, the food was good and if the "views tax" was included it was not excessive. Grilled fish

One of the most touristic cities in the Algarve

by Shibiru

"Albufeira = Al-Buhera"

Al-Buhera is the arabic name of Albufeira, which means "castelo do mar" (=castle of the ocean)

There's a lot of history in every little corner of this touristic city.

Nowadays it's just too focused on tourism...walking there in autumn was good, because we didn't find many tourists....we did find lots of English, Australian, German and so on who visited and stayed in Albufeira.

The restaurants have menus in all the languages and food from everywhere.

The nightlife in Albufeira is very famous in the Algarve. There is a street where all the bars and discos are...the only problem is: they are all fokused on english tourists. Every little bar and disco has a television...and my opinion they should invest more in showing the tourists how the portuguese like to party...but that's their tourism strategy and me, still as a tourism student, am not going to influence that now :)

"very international place"

We stayed there for 3 nights and loved it...we enjoyed walking through the beaches, the nightlife, people, weather (the first day was very rainny:), something that has a probability of about 10% - we weren't sooo lucky..hehe..)
