About The City Sightseeing Albufeira Bus Tour:
The City Sightseeing Albufeira tour lets you hop-on and off at any stop along the route during the validity period. However, to experience the tour in full depart from the bus stop on Rua do Municipio between Hotel Vila Gale Cerro Alagoa and Hotel Brisa Sol. The first stop on the tour is the Areias de Sao Joao, better known as the Albufeira Strip. The Strip is the city's neon clad nightlife centre, dive into all the best nightculbs, bars and other live music venues.
From the Strip your bus will turn in an easterly curve and make stops close to all the main Old Town beaches such as Praia da Oura, do Tunel and dos Pescadores. The Old Town itself is great for a slower-paced, leisurely stroll through traditional Portugal. Admire the whitewashed buildings, lounge outside a quaint bar with a drink and see what local or international dishes the menus offer.
Heading out from the Old Town the open-top tour makes its way west towards the vast golf courses of Herdade dos Salgados as well as the popular Praia dos Salgados. In Spring take a stroll along the sands to the lagoon at the back of the beach and watch the flamingos that make their home in the shallow waters.
The last big stop is the one that drops you off at the Albufeira Marina. The Marina is packed with rainbow assortments of modern buildings and open air cafes. Best of all, you can book boat trips, fishing trips and diving excursions along the sparkling coast!
