Mértola

The tranquility prevails in Altura, a tourist destination built for other tastes in the Algarve, with much more leisurely groups of tourists, and with much less bars and nightclubs than other major cities in the Algarve.

At this time of year, enjoy the sea by far on one of the many terraces of bars and restaurants that line the beach, the ideal place for a relaxed stroll.

Those who like to take a stroll will surely love the proximity to the beautiful Ria Formosa Natural Park and the Cachopo Waterfall, which is best explored on foot. Spain is less than ten kilometers away and also offers plenty of opportunities for a day out.

In the city there is a daily market with fresh products coming from the sea and the surrounding agricultural farms: the perfect ingredients for a traditional Portuguese meal cooked in the comfort of your own home.

If you like to go out at night from time to time, the nearby town of Monte Gordo has a good offer of bars and nightclubs as well as a casino.
