The Algarve is home to many beaches all of a high quality. Some are favourites for families because of the water sports and facilities on the beach, some that are favourites for people who want to get away from everything. Many tourists go on Algarve holidays for the golden sandy beaches, sparkling clear waters and the unbelievable weather. So here is my guide for the best beaches in the Algarve

Praia de Marinha

Praia de Marinha
Located along the Atlantic coast in Caramujeira, lays one of the most symbolic and beautiful beaches in all of Portugal. The Michelin Guide considered this to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, and in the top 100 in the world. In 1998 the beach was awarded with the Golden Beach award, by the Portuguese Ministry of the Environment, because of its splendid natural qualities. The beach is surrounded by cliffs, and has outstanding waters; it is often used as promotion in Portugal travel guides. 
Praia da Falésia beach

Praia da Falésia beach
Situated in Albufeira, this long stretch of golden sand and transparent waters spreads 8 km along the coast of Algarve. The red cliffs that create the amazing backdrop to this beach act as a barrier from the winds during the colder months. This is a great place to lie down and enjoy the sunshine and to reminisce about your holiday or think about what to do next. The beach offers a variety of different activities, and don’t worry about it being too crowded the beach is so big, there will always be a spot with your name on it.  

Olhos de Agua Beach
Olhos de Agua Beach

The beach at the heart of the very popular resort Albufeira is one of the most popular beaches as it is family friendly. Right near the beach there are plenty of restaurants, shops, bars and cafes which allow people to have a drink and a bite to eat after a day at the beach. There are many water sports offered along this beach, so this is a great place for you to come and splash around in the warm blue waters, while your kids drive around on a jet-ski or banana boat. 

Praia do Anção
Praia do Anção

Another large beach, with endless amounts of golden sand, located in Central Algarve, it is a very popular place with families. The gentle calm waters are protected from the wind by the dunes behind which makes this beach perfect for water-skiing. Here there are sun loungers and boats to rent. Another highlight is that right near this beach is one of the Algarve’s finest fish restaurants. This beach was awarded the blue flag for its clean beach and lovely waters.

Praia de Albandeira
Praia de Albandeira

Located in Central Algarve, this hidden gem is completely out of reach for many tourists. Praia de Albanderia is a small beach squeezed in between the cliffs. This beach isn’t exactly family friendly as it has no facilities really at all no water sports, no sun loungers and very few visitors. There is one wooden bar located above the rocks, and a good place to stop off for a nice cold beer.

Tunisia is a great place to visit all year round with hot winter and very hot summers. It is the northern most country of Africa.The wonderful landscape of Tunisia has been used by various different directors as locations for their films, such as Star Wars, Gladiator, Monty Python: Life of Brian, also Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark. With locations good enough for block buster films, it really has something for anyone to enjoy. Here are some of the best places to visit in Tunisia:

Amphitheatre of El Jem

Amphitheatre of El Jem
The Amphitheatre located in El Djem, it is the largest coliseum in North Africa and is said to have had a capacity of up to 35,000 spectators. It was built by the Romans and was mainly used for gladiator games as well as chariot races. So get ready to join the ancient world where animals and men used to meet there fate.  It was partially used to film Ridley Scott’s Gladiator, and with the help of CGI, they brought the Amphitheatre to life by reconstructing the parts that are no longer there. It is surrounded by cafes focused mainly for tourists; there is also a cafe located in the coliseum. It was named a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 1979.


Skywalker at matmata
Matmata is a small town in the south of Tunisia, it is best known for its unique architecture. Some of the towns’ houses and other buildings are located underground. George Lucas used this location to film the planet known as Tatooine in Star Wars. The most famous part of this town is the Hotel Sidi Driss, this was the home of Luke Skywalker as well as his Uncle and Aunt in the Star Wars films. The town has become very popular with tourist all round the world because of the film franchise.

Great Mosque of Kairouan

Great Mosque of Kairouan
Every city in Tunisia has a great mosque but the Great Mosque of Kairouan, is the oldest and most important mosque in the country. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Kairouan, and was built in 670AD. It is known to be the 4th holiest place in Islam, after Mecca, Jerusalem and Medina. Not only is it open to Muslims, but it is also open to any tourists that want to enter, but you have to be appropriately dressed to enter. Robes are available at the entrance for the people that aren’t suitably dressed. For Muslims the mosque can be entered from 9 different gates, whereas non-Muslims are only able to enter from the Main gate.  Tourists are allowed in the courtyard, but are forbidden to enter the prayer hall, but the door is open for those who want to have a quick glimpse of what it looks like.

Aqua Palace

Aqua Palace
Grab your swimming costumes and your towel and head down to the first and largest water park in Tunisia situated in Port El Kantaoui. Aqua Palace covers 2 hectares with slides and attractions that include the Space Boat where you will find yourself circling a bowl before plunging into a small pool. Or you could try the Toboggan Kamikaze where you will fall 10 metres at a speed of 50Km/h. For those who don’t fancy the thrill of a slide but fancy something a little more relaxing then join the lazy river that spreads 200 metres across the park. It has enough attractions for the whole family to enjoy an entire splash filled day.

Medina of Tunis

Medina of Tunis
The medina that is located in the centre of the Tunis spreading over 270 hectares making up one tenth of the population of Tunis. With its narrow walkways and covered passageways it is always filled with different scents, open markets that sell all kinds of handcrafted souvenirs. Such things as leather to tin or even the best filigree are offered at these markets and shops, but be ready to haggle as it is a tradition for the market/shop keepers. Tunis is home to over 700 Monuments like mosques, fountains, mausoleums and palaces. The medina holds a lot of the 700 different monuments.
