Looking for more of an active afternoon to keep the family busy? The best things to do on Albufeira holidays are to spend the day squealing and clinging onto a banana boat, touring the remote caves by paddleboard, or water-skiing for that adrenaline-fuelled rush. After you've enjoyed the beachfront water sports, head to Albufeira's golf courses to test your game or whizz down the zip wires at Luso Aventura Albufeira. Sail along the coast of Algarve and see more Albufeira with a boat trip. You can search for dolphins in their natural habitat and cruise by the coastline's picturesque caves.
