May is a great time to visit the Algarve. It is a fairly quiet time in terms of tourist numbers, so you can relax and enjoy having more space to yourself sunbathing on the beach! Full of bars and restaurants, there are also activities such as mountain biking and go-karting. You can spend your days sunbathing then perhaps venture off to take part in more strenuous activities. This can be a fun and relaxing holiday in one!
