Full description
Discover Portimão's outstandingly beautiful, fine sandy beaches, and important historical legacy during a 24 or 48-hour sightseeing bus tour. Learn about how the city for some time, its industrial development centered on the production of canned fish and dried fruits. However, in the last decades, it has become a very popular tourist destination, ideal for enthusiasts of diving and other nautical sports.

Marvel at Praia da Rocha, which is considered to be one of the most famous beaches in the Algarve and its beautiful 2-km-long sandy beach offers a wide range of activities for all ages. With a wide selection of restaurants and bars, it is a lively nightspot for the people of Portimão.

Next, hop off in Alvor village, a typical fishing village which seems to have almost stopped in time. Learn about how in spite of its similarity with the Portuguese word “alvorada”, meaning drawn, the village's name comes from the Arabic Al-Bur - the name given it by the Arabs during their occupation. Dating back to these times are the ruins of a castle, destroyed by the big earthquake of 1755 and which for 500 years had served as a Fort defending the coast. In spite of the growing wave of tourism, this typical fishing village seems to have almost stopped in time.
