The Algarve is known for its all-year good-weather climate. Prepare for blue skies, good vibes, and potentially a sailing afternoon. You heard that right: we are asking you to pack your swimsuit.

Located along the Souther Coast of Portugal, we chose this destination because is made for golfers. When good weather meets a group of great people, things usually go very well. Plus there are daily international flights going to Faro airport and more than 17 golf clubs nearby giving the Local Rule Open Cup another reason to be the best golf tournament ever.

Pulpo a la Gallega Food

EAT. PLAY. SLEEP. REPEAT.

Good food is taken care of.

Pulpo a la Gallega Food

The traditional food of the area revolves around the Mediterranean Sea, from which its finest delicacies originate. Great seafood is guaranteed.

However, the main feature of the area’s cuisine, much like on the rest of the eastern coast of Spain, is the rice. La Comunidad Valencia gave birth to the best paella, and it is still the best place in the world to eat it.

Bear in mind also that this is a vegetable-growing region, which is why legumes and vegetables are also responsible for some of the key dishes that make up the traditional food here.

Expect fresh fish, good wine, and good tapas.
