The Algarve has its own marine park, Zoo Marine, just a short drive away, in Guia.






You will find many boat trips on offer.  From March to September you will see each day, the Santa Barbara (pictured) on its journey along the coast.  It leaves nearby Portimao and travels along the coast as far as Marinha beach where you have the option to transfer to a smaller boat to explore the caves, weather permitting.




The annual sand sculture festival at Pera has a different theme each year.  Ideal for young and old alike!






Try to visit one of the many markets you will find across the Algarve. This one was at Algoz.
