Best Photo Locations in the Algarve

Some stunning, camera-worthy spots in the Algarve

Take a photographic road trip of the Algarve on your next rent-a-car holiday

In the far south-west of Europe, rugged cliffs plunge straight into the sea. Sandy beaches kiss the Atlantic Ocean and incredible vistas draw the attention of photographers and sunshine-seekers alike.


Portugal’s Algarve region along the south coast has enticed those in search of picturesque locales since its whitewashed fishing villages were transformed in the 1960s into culturally soaked holiday havens.


Photographers and snap-happy landscape enthusiasts will benefit from spectacular sunsets along idyllic seafronts. So prepare your camera bag and collect your hire car from Faro Airport to reach some of the Algarve’s most remarkable photography locations.
