Altura : Holiday Accommodation
Altura is a purpose-built beach resort on the eastern side of the Algarve, perfect for a fun-filled family holiday to Portugal. The eastern side is less developed than the western side and contains five beautiful, Blue Flag approved, beaches. Altura’s silky soft sands melt into crystal-clear waters that are perfect for swimming and ideal for children paddling in the shallows. If lounging around in the bright sunshine leaves you craving some action-packed activity you can try your hand at various water sports at the beach front. Golf enthusiasts will appreciate the three superb courses that are considered some of the best in Europe, and all only 15 minutes from the resort.
There is a modest selection of bars and restaurants in Altura but the most commercial resort on the eastern side is Monte Gordo. It is only ten minutes away and offers a dining option to suit every budget and taste. The vibrant nightlife in Monte Gordo is equally enthralling with everything from folk nights to full-on clubs. There is also a casino where you can catch an internationally-renowned stage show or have some fun at the tables. A package holiday to the Algarve has something for everyone.
