I'm heading over to Albufeira and I was just wondering if there are any hiking or mountaineering activities, or outdoor landmarks worth seeing in the area (or close by).

I don't want to be stuck on the beach with my friends the whole holiday, and from what I can see on TripAdvisor it's just beaches/typical tourist stuff.

Anyone know of any, through resources/personal experiences local to there?


  • I would define local as probably within 25 miles of Albufeira.
  • I haven't been to Portugal previously, so I'm unaware of any of the surrounding areas. (I'll be going off Google Maps or a real map of some kind only)

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it fits better to travel.SX and already has an answer there.

    Voting to leave open. Being in scope at another site does not make it out of scope at this site. May 10, 2017 at 14:27

    Great, thanks. Also, when you get back, it would be great to self-answer this with things you found. Even if we're able to look up some good things for you, first hand experience will be very valuable! May 11, 2017 at 0:02
