Construction began in 1972 with the sole intention of creating a first class holiday destination. The resort has worked very closely together with the Natural Park to ensure that there is no environmental impact from the development.
Ria Formosa has a large lagoon, marshlands and spectacular nature trails, all of which are populated by rare bird species. If you are a lover of nature, wildlife or walking, one of our luxury villas in Quinta do Lago will be a spectacular base.

Scuba diving is immensely popular here, with opportunities to take part on most of the nearby beaches. You'll have a chance to try water skiing, parasailing and speedboating in the open ocean, while non-motorized activities such as windsurfing, pedalos and stand up paddling are all available on the resort's exclusive lake.

The resort is geared around an active lifestyle, with The Campus sports complex being used by professional sports teams and athletes from around the world to hone their skills.
Quinta do Lago is a golfing paradise, twice being named as Europe's Best Golf Destination at the World Golf Awards.
The three courses - North, South and Laranjal - are stunning, with their natural water features and spectacular scenery, but as is befitting of their Championship-standard designs, they can also be challenging. Ten more courses are also within easy driving distance.
