It’s one of the main tourist destinations in the Algarve and visitors will find themselves in the lap of refined luxury on a holiday to Vilamoura. Golf courses, pine tree forests and water sports are all on offer here along with the relaxing coastline, stylish marina and warm Portuguese sunshine.
Things to Do
From championship golf courses, to walking and biking trails through Vilamoura’s wild country side, this Portuguese resort is a haven for those who love the outdoors. Boat trips let visitors explore the coastline from the ocean while history buffs can seek out Vilamoura’s past at ruins of an ancient Roman fishing village. Further afield, a day trip can take you to the pretty village of Loule or the nearby bustling town of Faro.
One of the biggest attractions of Vilamoura are the beautiful beaches bordering this resort. The two beaches of Praia da Marina and Praia de Falesia tempt back visitors year after year with their soft sands and dramatic cliffs which are typical of the Algarve. For some water sport action, venture out onto the ocean where you can pick up a pedalo, jump on a jet ski or go bonkers on a banana boat!
Food and Drink
The marina in Vilamoura is the bustling centre of this cosmopolitan resort. Bars and restaurants come with views of million dollar yachts and the food served ranges from Italian to the traditional Portuguese. An evening meal might be best accompanied by a delicious cocktail or local beer and for dessert, there’s a restaurant in Vilamoura that claims to make the “best chocolate cake in the world”. That’s enough of a reason to visit, isn’t it?
