Water and Theme Parks
Two of the most popular Algarve attractions are Zoomarine theme park and Aqualand Algarve water park. Both are fantastic days out for the whole family, with Zoomarine and it's marine life shows, attractions and 4D cinema, probably the most popular attraction in the Algarve, and the only one of its kind in Portugal and Aqualand with fun rides for the little ones right up to white knuckle rides for the thrill seekers!

Barão de S.João, Lagos... A great day out for all the family, it's a relatively small zoo that concentrates on "conservation-education-protection" with over 120 animal species and 200 botanical species from 5 continents. It also has a children's petting farm where you can feed the goats and pigs! Open daily all year round.

Treat yourself and your senses to an incredible culinary experience
With over 200km of coastline, it's not surprising that the fish and seafood are a staple part of the diet for people in the Algarve. With daily fishing trips bringing in huge amounts of fresh sardines, tuna,
bream, cod, monkfish and many other types of fish; plentiful supplies of clams, oysters, prawns, not to mention octopus and squid, it's easy to understand why.
The traditional Portuguese restaurants normally offer a large selection of fish dishes, one of which is almost certain to be grilled sardines, served with boiled potatoes and vegetables or salad.
Enjoy the world famous Portuguese wine and dont forget after the meal you may want to try a glass of port, Portugal's best known drink
