Group Holidays West Algarve & Lagos
Join us on a group adventure with incredible beaches, surfing, coasteering and other fun Algarve activities
On our activity holidays in West Algarve we explore the more chilled out natural areas of Portugal, in Aljezur and also the coastal town of Lagos. Away from over-developed destinations such as Albufeira, enjoying a beach-bum lifestyle, outdoor activities and delicious seafood. The Costa Vicentina on the west coast is famous for its many great surf spots (from beginner to advanced) and for thrill-seekers looking for an adventure we’ll take you coasteering near Sagres / Lagos and Stand up paddleboarding through rivers and cave systems. Lagos is a fun little coastal town with some nice bars & restaurants and beautiful local beaches. It’s a great place to stay if you’re after a bit more nightlife, but still want all the adventures on your doorstep. With an average of 300 sunny days per year, the Algarve makes a great all year round European destination for your group holiday!
Big Blue also offers quality group accommodation options to make your short break or activity holiday in West Algarve comfortable and carefree. Choose between private villas, hostels & hotels, and add your favourite outdoor adventure.

We settled on the coasteering package in the Algarve, and it turned out to be the perfect choice.
We were met by Nuno and the team, who picked all 16 of us up on time at our hotel (they even brought us pastel de natas!) Right from the start, they ensured everything we needed was sorted. The coasteering activity was awesome and the guys leading it were extremely helpful, professional and fun. The lunch that was provided was perfect for after the activities, and the restaurant setting of Benagil was fantastic! Nuno even brought us for and unexpected hike and tour around a local cove.
Big blue adventures made the whole experience easy for us, and ensured we had the best possible time during our short stay in Portugal! The team loved it, and I will definitely be booking again for next year!read more
