Holidays To The Algarve Reveal Hidden Treasures
The Algarve Promotion Bureau has urged British holiday makers to book holidays to Portugal this year and to be bold and discover the hidden treasures available for all in the region's hidden hinterland.
Thousands of Britons book cheap holidays to Portugal every year, drawn in by the sun shine, golf courses and the incredible beach resorts that line the coast. And with cheap flights to Faro (the largest city on the Algarve) being readily available from airports across the UK, there are some excellent deals to be had. Moreover, cheap hotels and cheap holiday packages to the resort make the destination even more attrac
The tourist board of The Algarve's "sun and sea" product manager Martina Kerk however recently declared that there was much more to a holiday to the Algarve than these, admittedly tempting, holiday attractions. And told that there were many rewards to be had for the adventurous holiday maker that makes a trip inland to discover.
The gorgeous scenery of the region, the picturesque villages and the magnificent topology, means that the Algarve's walking trails like Via Algarviana and Rota da Cortica can be really magnificent for those that decide to take Martina's advice. After a day on the travels, weary travellers will not have any shortage of refreshments to choose from and there are plenty of opportunities to taste wines, and the rich and delicious seafood prepared in the traditional dish of "cataplana".
The lesser known western Algarve, into the hills of Monchique, offer an incredible place for holiday makers looking to experience local cultures and traditions in the small towns and villages. And there's little worry of getting caught in the open during any bad weather (something that British travellers will no doubt be used to). Holidays to the Algarve boast an average temperature of 20C (68F).
