Office Hours 9am - 6pm, Monday to Saturday. Let's talk about Your Holiday!
When it comes to Easter in the Algarve, the region really knows how to celebrate. You might have your own Easter traditions, but if you've decided to go on holiday then the Algarve is a great choice!
At SandyBlue, we want to help you make the Easter 2022 in the Algarve a trip you will never forget. It is an important time for the Portuguese people, so you can guarantee good food, cultural festivals and a great atmosphere.
As a devout and religious country, Easter is a true celebration in Portugal. The entire week, starting from Palm Sunday, is celebrated with processions and religious traditions. In 2022, Palm Sunday is April 10th with Easter Sunday the following week on April 17th.
Easter Sunday is definitely a time for family, so the Algarve is the perfect place to bring yours for Easter! While shops will be closed, you can prepare ahead of time - many people make a traditional Lamb dinner. Easter Monday is not a public holiday, though many locals take the day off for extra family time and even more delicious food. Sounds great, right?
Should you want to embrace the Algarve's traditional approach to Easter and experience the culture, you won't be disappointed. If you're looking for family fun, there will be plenty going on.
Should you choose to stay in your villa or apartment for the main Easter dates, there will be plenty of supermarkets to stock up on all the essentials. Should you want to organise a delivery, our team will be able to help before your arrival.
If you want to explore the restaurants of the Algarve at Easter, here's where you can go during your stay...
Though we mentioned that a traditional lamb dinner is a popular choice, there are many other dishes you should try. Folar is a traditional cake with cinnamon and honey, originating in Olhão. Think of it as the Portuguese alternative to the English hot cross bun. Cabrito assado is another popular dish, which is roast baby goat.
(Note, due to religious observation in the country, some shops and restaurants might be closed on Easter Sunday - be sure to check ahead of time to get your plan in place!)
There is plenty of fun to be had at Easter time. With availability on some of our best villas and apartments, get in touch with the team today and secure a wonderful holiday in the Algarve.
