The Algarve was named Europe's Leading Beach Destination 2013 at the World Travel Awards. It boasts 130 beaches and some of the world's best golf courses. Albufeira itself retains much of its ancient charm -- it's "highly picturesque, with narrow, twisting lanes of whitewashed houses crisscrossing the high ochre-red cliffs above a beautiful spread of beaches" -- according to Rough Guides.
Solo travellers can travel for a £50 supplement.
Checked bags are from £32 more and transfers are from £20 more, return. The resort is approximately 40 minutes' drive from Faro airport.
