Boasting 125 miles of coastline and an average temperature of 25 degrees in July, The Algarve is the perfect destination for lovers of golden sand and glistening sea. Portimão is the largest city in western Algarve and is a hub for tourism, leisure and retail. The historic centre has a distinctively Portuguese ambience with plenty for you to do during your stay. From beach relaxation and enjoying the local cuisine to exploring historical sites, there’s something for everyone.
Praia da Rocha, about two miles south of Portimão, is the town’s main beach. The stunning beach is surrounded by stunning red-rock cliffs, so it’s no surprise Praia da Rocha means ‘Rocky Beach’ in Portuguese. It’s one of the most popular and liveliest beaches in The Algarve making it the perfect home for Afro Nation Portugal.
