East Algarve

Open Gallery

Stretching from Faro to the Spanish border, the coastal towns of the eastern Algarve are far more under-developed than elsewhere in the Algarve reflected in the competitively priced properties and relaxed environment separated from the Atlantic by salt-pans, marshland and lagoons which form part of the Ria Formosa Natural Reserve. This stretches from just south of Faro along the coast to the town of Vila Nova de Cacela, a few kilometer’s west of the Rio Guadiana River on the Spanish border. Inland are rustic villages in remote countryside with the more populated areas nearer the coast, there are golf courses, roman ruins, fish markets and plenty of beaches throughout this region. The climate is generally good all year round with the Atlantic providing a cooling breeze during the hot summer months, the rest of the year is mild with only a few days of rain on average.
