Albufeira, Portugal, January 28, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- According to Gary Miller, director of Algarve Fun, the most popular activities in 2017 were the boat trips, with the trips to Benagil caves being the favourite choice. Located between Carvoeiro and Armação de Pêra, Benagil’s beautiful sea cave is listed in the world’s “Top 10 Coolest Caves” according to the American online newspaper The Huffington Post. Benagil’s cave is actually one of many caves along Lagoa’s coastline but is certainly the most stunning, attracting thousands of visitors.
Also kayaking and snorkeling activities have grown in popularity in 2017 with a younger, active and sporty demographic of tourist being attracted to the Algarve for its challenging activities that combine sports and the sea. On Algarve Fun’s website you’ll find kayaking and other activities available along all the Algarve coast. Since the company's foundation in 2014, the most popular attractions in Algarve still are the water/theme parks, boat tours and increasingly so watersports. Albufeira is still the busiest city for tourism but the west coast and Lagos is also growing in popularity especially for outdoor pursuits such as hiking, biking and other adventurous activities.
August is still the favourite month for holidays in the south of Portugal! The Algarve is packed with people from all over the world. It is so busy that “some clients schedule activities with Algarve Fun months in advance just to make sure they don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy their preferred activity choices,” explains the director of the company.
However even during the winter months there are plenty of activities to choose from and helped create an extended tourist season for 2017 with a growing number of businesses remaining open for longer. Gary Miller suggests trips to the Zoo in Lagos, dolphin watching or caves boat trips, but also private yacht charters are popular at this time of the year for groups celebrating special events such as birthday parties, stag and hen dos, and weddings.
