In the beautiful Algarve there lies a great party destination called Albufeira. The best thing about the nightlife in Albufeira is that all the main bars and nightclubs are on one main strip. During the summer months the strip has party people from all over Europe enjoying the great nightlife.
The main nationalities you will find on this strip are Portuguese, Dutch and English. You may also find a small portion of other nationalities such as French and Italian. After having a few (or a lot of) drinks, talking to other nationalities makes it a fantastic night.
If you are looking for a 18-30 party crazy destination like Kavos, Malia and Ayia Napa, then Albufeira probably isn’t the best place. You can still have a great time and you will enjoy the nightlife. Albufeira is more relaxed than these destinations, however it still provides you with a great night out. If you are going out on a stag do or hen party then the Albufeira sun, the bars and the nightlife are for you.
It would be recommended to go for a long weekend rather than going for one week or more. The best time to go would be in June, July, August and September. In theses months you will get sunny weather and a decent nightlife.
The age range is very mixed. Most of the people are in there twenties but you may find people in their early thirties that are on a stag or hen do.
Nightclubs and Bars
On Albufeira famous strip there are a lot of bars to enjoy. Here are a few places to try: LA Bamba, Patcha, Wild & Co and Mambo. There are three main nightclubs and their names are Club Vida (closes at 7am), Kiss (small walk from the strip) and Heaven (situated on the strip). All three of these nightclubs are decent and are probably worth going into.
Things to Do
There are some fantastic activities you can do during the day in Albufeira. The types of things you can do are going to the water park, fishing, a visit to the Zoomarine Sealife Amusement Park, buggy safia, para-sailing, jet skiing, paintballing, go karting, quad biking, jeep safari, a around of golf and kayaking.
All that stuff is great but probably the best activity to go for is the boat party. The boat party is fantastic for topping up your tan, dancing and drinking. If you’re not into all that, you can just chill beside the pool or go to the beautiful beaches.
