Halloween - what's on in the Algarve

Family Fun Inspiration Seasonal Celebrations

Scary fun and mid-term breaks

Scary times are coming. As another Halloween rolls around, ghosts and ghouls emerge from the shadows and zombies prowl….be afraid, be very afraid.

Ok, maybe not too afraid. Halloween in the Algarve isn’t all soul-snatching monsters and blood-sucking vampires. Coinciding as it does with mid-term breaks in various countries, Halloween is a great opportunity to enjoy an autumn getaway with the added frisson of few scares along the way.
Here’s are some highlights of what’s on this Halloween in the Algarve.

To get into the Halloween mood there are some spooky and unusual things to do in the Algarve. Check out the strange Chapel of Bones at Faro where the walls are lined with carefully placed skulls and bones. Or go 230m underground to visit a salt mine. Being surrounded by geological formations that are millions of years old while deep underground has to be a little spooky.
