What was once a small Roman fishing village is now Europe's largest luxury tourist complex, and as such is exceptionally well developed, with something for every expensive taste.

Alvor holidays

Resting between the Atlantic and the mouth of the Alvor estuary is another favourite with those on the hunt for cheap holidays to the Algarve. The two main beaches in Alvor (which are actually the same stretch of sand) vary greatly, as one, Praia de Alvor (aka Alvor Beach), is long and wide with rolling dunes that back onto a calm lagoon, ideal for watersports and swimming. The other, Praia dos Três Irmãos (aka Three Brothers Beach), is more secluded thanks to the stunning limestone rock formations and steep cliffs that surround it.

As well as enjoying the diverse beaches here, you can also soak up the history of the harbour, browse the local shops and admire the pretty winding streets. Alvor is also a great place to take a day trip from with many boat rides and excursions available.

Sagres

Perched in the southwest of the Algarve (and mainland Europe for that matter), Sagres has two dominant features: Cape St Vincent and the Sagres Peninsula. Rugged beaches are tucked between impressive rocky cliffs, and its rather remote and exposed position makes it a haven for watersports enthusiasts after a good breeze.

It's also known for its fabulous seafood and its slower pace of life compared to some of the region's more developed resorts that you find when looking for cheap holidays to the Algarve in 2017/2018.

Quinta do Lago

For a chic and sophisticated escape, you can't go wrong with Quinta do Lago. There's an 18-hole golf course and wealth of activities available on land as well as in the sea and surrounding lakes.

Give horse riding or windsurfing a go before delving into the nearby Ria Formosa National Park with its migratory birds such as flamingoes and resident chameleons. The town also hosts its own colourful summer festival which is a real treat for those seeking cheap holidays to the Algarve.

Praia d'Oura

If you're after a little peace and quiet on your hunt for cheap holidays to the Algarve, look no further than Praia d'Oura. A smaller, sleepier Algarve resort with a laid back pace, Praia d'Oura has golden beaches, turquoise sea and a relaxed promenade, guaranteeing you the chance to really unwind in naturally beautiful surroundings. It's also perfectly placed to visit nearby towns such as Albufeira if you fancy a late night or Faro for a touch of history.

Carvoerio

Carvoeiro is a pretty white-washed town which clings to hillside above idyllic sandy beaches and a definite consideration for couples and families when looking for cheap holidays to the Algarve. It's a compact place with a skyline that's dominated by the ruins of a dramatic 17th century fort.

Winding streets make for a very charming town centre and the number of cafes and restaurants ensure you'll never go hungry. It's also a great base from which to stroll to neighbouring towns or take a boat trip to the likes of Albufeira.
