Along Portugal's southern Algarve region sits Albufeira, a city boasting 20 beaches for visitors to choose from.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Praia Da Rocha and Praia do Amado. Step out of the city life by going to Ponta da Piedade and Falesia Beach. Explore Albufeira's surroundings by going to Telheiro Beach (in Vila do Bispo) and Cape Saint Vincent (in Sagres). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Lagoa dos Salgados and stroll through Algarve.

For where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, read our Albufeira itinerary planning tool.

Toronto, Canada to Albufeira is an approximately 12-hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Toronto to Albufeira due to the time zone difference. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Toronto in October: high temperatures in Albufeira hover around 28°C and lows are around 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Lisbon.
