Adega do Cantor Winery
Portugal is known for some exquisite wines so why not take a day to go wine tasting at Albufeira's local winery. Wines cost on average about 10£ per bottle and the range of selections is quite impressive. There is another reason to visit the winery. It is owned by 80's pop legend Cliff Richard.
Taking a tour of the vineyards and winery at Quinta do Miradouro, and enjoying a tasting of Sir Cliff Richard’s Vida Nova, makes for an entertaining day out if holidaying in Albufeira. The entire process, from growing the grapes, to bottling the wine takes place on the estate. The vineyard is situated a few kilometres northwest of Albufeira. The tours are an hour long and tasting is by appointment. There are several tour times throughout the day, depending on the time of year and availability. Visit the website to make a reservation.

The Lighthouse at Sagres
A short bus ride from Albufeira takes you to the last stop on the Algarve, the town of Sagres. Although the town of Sagres is quite small with a few shops, bars and hotels, there is one stunning attraction to see. At the very end of the town is the lighthouse which is the last remains of Henry the Navigator's school of navigation. The lighthouse is still functional and is the most powerful one in Europe. The views from the cliff side are stunning as visitors can see where the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet. Make sure you take your wind breaker as the winds can get quite high from this position.
