Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.
Albufeira is a Portuguese city and a municipality in the district of Faro. It has a population of 35,281 inhabitants and a total area of 140.6 square kilometers. The population expands significantly in the summer, as Albufeira is one of the leading tourist resorts of the region. New developments include a marina, golf courses plus numerous hotels and apartment blocks for the annual flood of visitors. Albufeira is a good base to explore the region with many smaller and less well known beaches within a short drive.

A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, cooperative people and luxurious hotels and cottages, Albufeira is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
