If you’re after non-stop fun in the sun, look no further than Montechoro. Tucked on the outskirts of Albufeira – the largest and liveliest resort in the Algarve – this place is a real crowd pleaser. Its famous ‘strip’ is so packed with restaurants, shops and bars you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to eating and partying.

On the food front, you’ve got everything from small Portuguese bistros to modern, international restaurants. As for evening entertainment, the nightlife here is buzzing, but very family-oriented, too – think karaoke-style bars rather than open-all-night clubs.

Talking of families, if you’re on holiday with the kids, Montechoro Fun Park is a surefire hit with its splash pools, mini-golf course and bouncy castle.

Or if you’re after a more traditional taste of Portugal, head to the family-run fish restaurants and lively open-air market of Albufeira old town. Last, but most definitely not least, there’s the beach. Or, should we say, beaches? This part of Portugal is packed with them, the most impressive being the aptly-named ‘golden beach’ of Praia D’Oura. With its stretching sands and colourful cliffs, it’s textbook Algarve. And what’s more, it’s only a ten-minute walk away.
