Located in the western-part of the Algarve, Vilamoura is a sophisticated destination, home to the biggest marina in Portugal. It is one of the most popular resorts too, especially with golfers as it boasts six different Golf Courses including the famous Old Course, one of the oldest golf courses in the Algarve and the Victoria Course a PGA Championship course providing the ultimate test for players.
Vilamoura’s pleasant Blue Flag-awarded beaches are another highlight of a holiday here with golden sand stretches and deep blue water, perhaps the most famous beach being Praia da Falésia with its extensive coastline framed by towering red cliffs.
The Marina de Vilamoura is the heart of this bustling location, surrounded by chic restaurants and waterfront cafes and bars. It is also renown for its vibrant nightlife and upbeat atmosphere for both music and entertainment.
There’s something for both couples or families looking for a holiday that combines both relaxation but adventure with the wealth of activities on offer. Local history too provides plenty of impressive sights such as Cerro da Vila, the remnants of a Roman villa just a short walk from the marina. Now an archaeological site and museum, it’s well worth visiting.
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to Vilamoura.
