Albufeira go back as far as pre-historic times. It was occupied by the Romans named it Baltum. The name was changed by the Arabs to Al-Buhera during their occupation and developed the small port in the 8th century. Albufeira was captured from the Moors by the Knights of the Order of Santiago in the middle of the 13th century. It then became just a fishing village for many centuries and was granted its charter as a village in 1504 by King Manuel I. The village of Albufeira and its castle was partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake. The town of Albufeira is located in the central area of the Algarve and offers a vast variety of holiday accommodation, shops, restaurants and busy bars, golf courses, tennis, and most importantly lovely sandy beaches. The fishing village has grown in size since the beginning of the 1960s into its present major holiday destination in the Algarve.

There are four Museums in Albufeira. The Museu de Arte Oriental de Albufeira which is devoted to Oriental Art, the Museu de Arte Sacra for religious items, The Museu do Poeta located at Ferreiras which is a series of massive stones with some 3.000 tiles illustrating the thoughts extracted from books written by Fernando Baralba, the founder of the museum. The Museu Municipal de Arqueologia de Albufeira which as the title indicated is a collection of archaeological items.

The most popular beaches surrounded Albufeira are Praia da Gale, Praia da Falesia, and the Praia de S. Rafael. Visitors will find an attractive Boat Marina on the west side of the town with shops, bars and restaurants. Also, very close to Alcantarilha are the popular Aqualand Water Park and the Zoomarine Park. On the same road on the east side of Guia there is the large commercial area with its shopping mall, cinemas, and bowling. For golfers and within easy reach are the 9-hole Balaia Village Golf Course and the 18-hole Salgados Golf Course.
