Although the Algarve is well known for golf, the beaches are beautiful and warm. The idea place to stay is in a hotel or resort next to the beaches. You can watch the water and beaches right from your room. The water sports in the Algarve area are fantastic. There are beautiful beaches everywhere in the world, but you have never been to a beach as beautiful as the beaches here. They are warm, clean and remarkably tropical in all senses of the word. Sitting on a beach in the Algarve's is like paradise. The water is the bluest you have ever seen and warm.

Although all the beaches are spectacular, the best one is Praia de Barril. Once you get to the beach area there are shops, game rooms, restaurants and cafes that you can enjoy while spending the day lazing around in the sun. The fun starts as soon as you get to the beach. You will find that the short train ride to the beach is unusual, but you can walk to the beach as well. The beachcombers love this beach because of its beautiful surroundings. The day is always delightful when you spend it here.

If you are looking for a beach to watch the antics of the water activities, you will enjoy Meia Praia. You will see jet skiers, windsurfers and surfer trying the waves. This beach is a popular spot with beachcombers that need the thrill that comes from the high waves and warm breezy winds to have fun. The area is also great for taking a hike on the beach. The scenery around this area is amazing. The beauty of the land and the water is incredible. You can plan the entire day around water activities and sunbathing when you visit this particular beach.

Scuba diving and windsurfing at Praia da Gale is so much fun. The water is so clear that you can see all the interesting marine life and windsurfing is incredible because of the warm gales that are prominent in this area. Even if you just want to sit and watch the surfer, you will have an enjoyable day. The sand can become hot under the suns beating rays, but a pair of sandals will protect your feet until you are accustomed to the heat. Take a picnic lunch along and a few drinks and enjoy a peaceful relaxing day if you are not going to scuba dive or windsurf.

A holiday to Algarve is for fun on the beaches as much as it is for golfing. The area has become renowned for golf, but the beautiful beaches are what attract the rest of the crowd.
