Golden Triangle, Central Algarve, Portugal


The Algarve is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The region alone has 155Km of Coastline meaning that there are over 25 beaches for you to explore! Furthermore, one of the Algarve's biggest hidden secrets are the Islands off the main coast, only accessible by boat or ferry, which forms part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park. The perfect escape from the busy mainland! Below are a few of our favourite beaches in the Golden Triangle and the Islands.
