Amazing Algarve (Portugal)

Laurent Pa...

This drone video by Laurent Paris will show you why the Algarve region of Portugal has become one of the hottest destinations in southern Europe.  Algarve is the southernmost of the country's five official mainland regions, and also it's least populous.  As tourists have discovered the incredible beauty of the region's coastline, it's become one of the most popular destinations in the country, rivaling the Lisbon region (until recently the dominant region for tourism) by some measures.

The Beaches of Lagos Portugal


Top contributor Justin Poore created this beautiful drone video of the "other" Lagos, this one not the Nigerian metropolis but rather a small city in the Algarve region of southern Portugal.  Lagos is one of the larger cities of the province, which covers roughly the southernmost 10% of the country.  Lagos is situated towards the southwestern extreme of the province (and the country), facing the Gulf of Cadiz.  It has been one of the main beneficiaries of the explosion of tourism which has occurred in Algarve.

Sea Caves of Lagoa


Benagil Sea Cave Algarve Portugal


The Algarve region of Portugal is home to some of the country's most well-known beaches. In part that's because of the sea caves which can be found along the Algarve coast, particularly on the southern (Bay of Biscay) side.  The caves are formed from the unique combination of soil composition and wave-erosion patterns to be found in southern Portugal.  In this drone video by Tech Drone Media, you'll get a great aerial view of one of these caves.  It's near the village of Benagil, in the town of Lagoa.

AirVuz contributor Esteban Castle brings us this rather epic drone "selfie" from the Algarve region of southern Portugal.  What makes this video unique is his flight pattern, in which he backs up through one of the region's famous rock arches.  These formations, which generally lie just offshore of the cove-type beaches which are prevalent here, were created by the unique sedimentation and erosion patterns found on Algarve's coastline.  Formations like this are one of the reasons why Algarve's beaches are some of the most popular in Europe.

Algarve's Barril Beach


Barril Beach, Algarve - Portugal 🇵🇹


Some of the best beaches of Portugal's famed Algarve region actually lie not on the mainland but on a series of narrow islands which lie just a short distance offshore.  They run parallel to the coastline just east of Faro, the regional capital.  One of these is Tavira Island, which is about 11 km (7 mi.) long and just 1 km (less than a mile) wide.  In this video by contributor Aerodrone, you'll get a bird's eye view of Barril Beach, which lies on this tiny strip of paradise on the Atlantic Ocean inlet known as the Bay of Cadiz.
