Originally a small fishing village, Portimão today serves as one of the most populated towns in the Algarve and also a favorite spot for sailing.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Fri): don't miss a visit to Cape Saint Vincent and then enjoy the sand and surf at Praia Da Rocha. On the 9th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take a stroll through Centro Historico de Albufeira, kick back and relax at Falesia Beach, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Nossa Senhora da Conceicao Hermitage, and finally look for gifts at Canastra.
