Albufeira… its history and our recommendations.


Located ocean side, in the centre of the Algarve is the town of Albufeira. Since ancient times, Albufeira is one of the most renowned fishing and maritime ports in Portugal. With the passing of the Romans, it was the Arabs who left their footprint on this important village, originally naming the area “Al-buhera” which resembled “The sea castle”.
The Arabs dominated this rich land for over five decades until it was conquered by the Christians. Due to an earthquake and consequently flooding in 1504, the town of Albufeira was devastated. The town Albufeira was then reborn, rich in commercialization of seafood and dried fruit, reintegrated Albufeira as of one of the most sort after destinations.


Renowned for their diversity, beauty and quality, Albufeira’s beaches are among the best in Europe, currently in 14th position in the Top 25 of the “Travellers Choice Awards 2012”. The diversity of beaches in the area of Albufeira is extraordinary, ranging from pine tree settings and unique cliffs faces to breath-taking rock formations and never-ending sand banks along the Algarvian coastline.

The immaculate Pine Cliffs Golf Course lies perched 200 feet above the golden sands and blue water of the Atlantic Ocean. The location of the resort is unique. It extends across 168 acres of naturally beautiful land set above a stunning cliff top, beneath lies an expanse of golden sand beach and the deep blue water of the Atlantic Ocean. The dark red of the sandstone cliffs contrasts sharply with the immaculate green of the golf course above and the sparkling blue ocean below.

This is one of the country’s most original golf courses, built in a pinewood setting, with tree lined fairways running parallel along the Atlantic Ocean, giving it’s guests breathtaking views along the Algarvian coastline. Architect Martin Hawtree’s main concern was to keep the natural surroundings as it was before the course was built.

The jewel of this perfectly kept course is the Par 3 sixth hole. The championship tee, known as the Devil’s Parlour, is built over a ravine that requires a 198 metre carrying shot over the cliffs to a deep but narrow green.

Superbly equipped with the latest technology in teaching systems the Golf Academy is manned by a team of Internationally Qualified PGA Professionals with a combined experience of over 20 years of teaching. The Pine Cliffs Golf Academy team offers a tuition service second to none for all parts of the game.
