Just returned from Albuferia. Visited the strip on a few occasions, have been during the summer where everything is open and is much livlier but still enough open during the winter to enjoy a few drinks and some food in the area.

Been coming here for years and have seen The Strip deteriorate quite badly. Dead in the winter months and the early season is when all the stags and hens start turning up. Then it's very noisy throughout the summer with all the usual antics going on, drunks shouting, throwing up, bumping into other people and fighting. The shops are full... More

Some souvenir shops and pubs are open but it looked more like a ghost town. It's better to go to the old town during winter/low season as most pubs are shut.

It might be a great happening place in Summer but we were disappointed in our recent visit in November, as most of the restaurants / pubs were closed or very quiet. Just thought to add this review, so that people going in Winters do not take high hopes with this place.

The Strip is full of restaurants, bars, discos, casinos, DJs, live bands and colourful lights. It's full of revellers and holiday makers of all ages. We had some great nights here on the strip and we would like to return to Montechoro and its Strip in the near future. If you are Albufeira you've got to see and feel the... More

The Irish Bar is very popular. There are some restaurants here but it's mostly bars. Expect to pay a lot more for your drinks here compared to the Old Town

First visited the strip about 10 yrs ago and i really enjoyed it, nice selection of bars, restaurants and shops bit it seems to have changed for the worse over the past couple of years, in one section the music is so loud you can't hear yourself think, the shop selection is not as good as it once was.

a good strip you can choose how far to go down as the further you go the younger it gets and becomes more late night early morning. however there are lots of places to eat and drink on the strip

Every time I visit Albuferia I always pay the strip a visit. There's so many great gift ideas and plenty of bars to keep refreshed. One of my favourites is Restaurante Ramos, they do great sandwiches at lunch and the beers are just €1.50 a pint.
