Launched in 2000, Essential Algarve is published bi-monthly in both English and Portuguese. Targeted at the top end of both the tourist market and the international residential community, the magazine highlights the cosmopolitan lifestyle that the Algarve has to offer.

Essential Algarve provides a lively mix of features, articles, reports, essential information and top-quality photography throughout, along with regular independent and up-to-date guides providing quality references for all those wishing to visit the region.

The magazine is one of many international publications produced by Open Media, an editorial group with extensive experience in publishing quality magazines.
