Holidays to Sesmarias take you to a little beach town in the Algarve. Here you’ll find great restaurants and beaches, plus you’re only 3 kilometres from lively Albufeira.
Well placed for the action
This rapidly developing town on the Algarve’s southern coast is home to numerous stylish villas and hotels. There’s a main road dotted with bars and restaurants, off which you’ll find all the beaches. And since you’re only a few kilometres west of Albufeira, you’re perfectly placed to enjoy all the nightlife and shopping that buzzing city has to offer, too.
A choice of beaches
Nowhere does beaches better than the Algarve – you’ve got near 100 of them along this stretch of coast. Certainly there are a few good ones to play with here. You could argue the toss over which is the best, but Sao Rafael, with its wide, golden sands and modern beach café, is definitely up there. And its surrounding cliffs and sand dunes make for some nice coastal walks, too.
Daytrips to Silves
It’s a half-an-hour drive to Silves, one of Portugal’s prettiest towns. Back in the day this was a Moorish capital, and you can still see a castle and a cathedral from that period. There are charming, cobbled streets dotted with orange and lemon trees, plus a landscaped central square. And when you’re done exploring, you can take a seat at one of the pavement cafés by the river.
