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. – Wills May 10 '17 at 12:02

    Voting to leave open. Being in scope at another site does not make it out of scope at this site. – James Jenkins May 10 '17 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! – Sue Saddest Farewell TGO GL May 11 '17 at 0:02
