Information on Albufeira Car Hire

Albufeira Car Hire

Compare & Save on car hire in Albufeira

The city of Albufeira started to grow in size and popularity as a tourist hub in the 1960s, but its history goes way back to Roman times, and the ruins of a Roman acqueduct can still be seen in the town. It was later occupied by the Moors who did much to develop the city, and even its name derives from the Arabic al-Buhera. Driven out by the Portuguese King Alfonso in the 13th Century, the city has seen both disasters, in the form of several severe earthquakes, and prosperity, from its trading position on the coast. The city is now visited by thousands of the 5 million tourists who tour the Algarve every year. To explore the beaches and vineyards of the surrounding area a vehicle is essential, and car hire in Albufeira is easy to arrange through GoCarHire.co.uk.

Things to Do in Albufeira

One of the busiest cities in the Algarve, Albufeira is enjoyed by many visitors for its stretches of golden sand, nightlife, and the colourful old fishermens’ quarters with bars and cafes lining the narrow streets. The beaches and water sports are what many come to the area for, and the principal beaches in Albufeira are Peneco and Praia des Pescadores. Peneco Beach is accessible from the city centre through a tunnel, and the sweep of golden sand is edged with an attractive promenade, and at one end the Xorino Grotto is worth exploring – supposedly the hiding place of the Moors who were driven out of the city by King Alfonso.

Top 3 Must See: Albufeira

  • Peneco Beach

  • Xorino Grotto

  • Zoomarine Algrave

Praia des Pescadores, as the name suggests, is home to the colourful fishing boats that are drawn up on the sand every evening, and is in the centre of the beach that runs the length of the seafront. For those who want a change from sea and sand, a visit to the beautiful Baroque church of Igreja Matriz makes for a peaceful and welcome break, or for golfing enthusiasts, the Algarve Golf Academy and Bar offers tuition and an outstanding practice area. The Zoomarine Algarve, a few miles from Albufeira, offers daily shows with dolphins, seals and sealions, and maes for a great day out with the family.

Driving Around Albufeira

Most visitors to the Algarve will arrive through Faro airport, only 32 miles from the city, and car hire is available at the airport or in Albufeira itself. An attractive alternative if you want to see more of Portugal is to fly in to Lisbon and take the A2 directly to Albufeira. Located not far from the motorway, the city is an ideal base for exploring the region and the coast, and the A22 running east to west through the city will take you to Lagos on the coast in one direction, and to Faro and Ayamonte in the other.
