What to expect from Easter in Portugal
A catholic country, Portugal takes Easter celebrations seriously, and huge processions can be enjoyed as they wind through towns and villages up and down the country. Though the Algarve is less religious than Portugal’s northern regions, those looking for Easter services and practices are sure to find them. If you stay at the Rocha Brava Village Resort, you’ll be well-positioned to attend celebrations in Carvoeiro. In fact, a service is even held in English at Carvoeiro Church for those wishing to observe the religious event.
What to eat on your Easter Holidays in Portugal
Straying away from the religious side of the holiday, there are a whole host of tasty treats you’ll want to try if in the Algarve for Easter. From plates piled high with roasted lamb or pork to almond treats and, of course, chocolate eggs, you certainly won’t be short on delicacies to sample.
One particular delicacy to watch out for in the Algarve is a traditional “Folar”, also known as Easter bread: a dense, sweet, cinnamon, lemon, and brown sugar-laden loaf that tastes far more delicious than it looks.
Then there are sugar or chocolate-coated almonds, most of which have grown on the hillsides of the Algarve itself – one of the most traditional local treats you’ll find here.
Top tips for your Easter Holiday 2023
Though there’s a lot to do at the Rocha Brava Village Resort, from spending the day in the pool to making the most of the children’s daycare centre for a bit of alone time, there’s so much more to explore. To ensure your Easter holiday 2023 is a family holiday to remember, make sure you soak up the best of what the Algarve has to offer, all only a stone’s throw from the resort.
From long walks along boardwalks and soaring cliffs to some of Europe’s most beautiful beaches, the Algarve coastline is just waiting to be explored, so ensure you put a day or two aside to breathe in the salty air as you contemplate the horizon. For activities for all the family, how about a boat trip out into the Atlantic for dolphin watching, a tour of carved-out sea caves, or water sports aplenty now that the weather’s warming up? Also not far away are some of Portugal’s best attractions, including two zoos – Krazy world and Lagos zoo – both of which make an excellent day out, as well as crazy golf locations, climbing experiences, and several water parks.
