Best Places To Stay For Afro Nation 2019
Travel Republic recommends these areas to be close to the festival location, local amenities and attractions:
This popular port town still has its traditional charm, and is a great place to enjoy Portugal’s beaches, fresh seafood and local culture. It’s steeped in history too, with an Old Quarter and a handful of ancient landmarks and antique shops. The main beach resort Praia da Rocha is a stone’s throw away, with a stunning sandy coastline and great nightlife.
Praia da Rocha
The festival site is situated in the picturesque Praia da Rocha area, just two miles south (or a 20 minute stroll) of Portimão centre. The area has been popular since the late 19th century, and benefits from amazing clifftop views, a bustling marina, a casino and a great selection of beachfront bars and restaurants.
Alvor lies on the banks of the Alvor Estuary, which overlooks the protected marshlands of Ria de Alvor Nature Reserve. This once Roman fishing village is now a popular spot for its lively nightlife and pair of beaches – Praia de Alvor and Praia dos Três Irmãos. There’s also an Old Town and the nearby Slide and Splash waterpark.
The relaxed town of Carvoeiro is known for its golf scene, wine bars, rugged coastline and whitewashed buildings. It’s a great resort for watersports, such as jet-skiing, kayaking and boat trips out along the coast where you can see Algar Seco – a spectacular landscape formed by cliff erosions.
