Portugal's premier holiday destination
The alluring coast of the Algarve receives much exposure for its breathtaking cliffs, golden beaches, scalloped bays and sandy islands. But 'sun, surf and sand' is far from the end of the Algarve story; there's no shortage of other attractions – activities, beach bars (and discos), castles (both sand and real), diving, entertainment, fun…
Vilamoura is a special place, a unique leisure and recreation resort community where its lifestyle makes it feels like summer all year round.
The Vilamoura Marina and its nearby beaches are one of the major attractions. At the marina you will find an extensive range of restaurants, pubs, bars and shops to suit all tastes, together with supermarkets and a wide range of leisure activities for the ideal family holiday. There are plenty options of places to enjoy and things to do in Vilamoura and the nearby area - all year round!
Located in the central Algarve region and only a 20 minute drive from Faro international airport, the nearby N125 road, provides easy access to the water parks and golf courses of the area and to the towns of Faro, Loulé, Quarteira, Albufeira, Portimão and beyond. The local markets held in Quarteira (Wednesday morning) and Loulé (Saturday morning) are very popular and are within easy reach.
Sagres is remote, adventurous and unlike any other destination in southern Portugal
The small town is situated at the extreme western tip of the Algarve (within a Natural Park) a region of dramatic natural scenery; comprising of raging seas, towering cliffs and vast beaches.
Sagres is a destination where visitors come to embrace nature’s immense power. The Natural Park of Costa Vicentina, a region of remote beaches and stunning natural beauty, offers more than 25 beaches to discover, most of these are nearly empty and of exquisite natural beauty.
Surfing is the main activity of Sagres but there also challenging hiking trails, quiet roads for cycling, while departing from the harbour are deep sea fishing trips.
If you stay in Sagres you can walk to the centre and to the main beaches but if you have a car you will be able to explore the amazing hidden beaches and the best kept secrets of this stunningly beautiful location
"tastes like sea"
"Perceves"or goose barnacles are some of the exceptional seafood you will experience in the Algarve. It tastes like…something between lobster and clams, and to some “like if you just swallowed the sea”.
