The Algarve is awash with world-class golf courses, many of which have been designed by some of the game's most famous players.

According to Daniel Queiros, executive director at the Algarve Promotion Bureau, this region of Portugal is a perfect place to play the sport because of the year-round warm weather, calm winds and championship-standard courses.

'The region's golf facilities and products are perfect for both beginners and experienced players looking to practice their swing,' he remarked.

Of course, there are many other reasons to book flights to Faro.

People who have no interest in golf can still enjoy the stunning weather, gorgeous beaches and amazing array of gourmet restaurants.

The Algarve is renowned for its fantastic seafood and it is definitely worth trying some of the fresh tuna, octopus and sardine dishes that feature prominently on the menus of the area's eateries.

Mr Queiros recently stated that Albufeira - with its plethora of historical sites, upmarket shops and superb nightlife - is a great place to visit.
