With two kilometres of stunning golden sand, the Praia do Anção beach stretches out in both directions. From the seaside town of Quarteira at one end, to the virtually untouched sandy head at the other offering all the peace and quiet that you could wish for - it is unrivalled. 

The cliffs sheltering the beach provide an impressive backdrop against the sound of the ocean gently caressing the shore. Relax you as you recline on the comfortable sun loungers or sip a cocktail under one of the umbrellas.

With all year round sunshine, you will want to visit the beach at any time of the year. Maybe you enjoy the water-sports, such as windsurfing, sailing, ocean safaris, water and jet skiing. Perhaps something on the sand, try volleyball or Pilates. The only tough decision of the day will be where to sit, there is so much space for everyone, even in peak season. 

Just a short stroll from the beach is the Praca, which provides a wonderful selection of beach-front bars, cafes and restaurants, which are open all day. It is wonderful to sit there in the evening over a glass of chilled white wine or a beer, watching the magnificent sunsets. 

 Great Nightlife

There really is something for everyone. At the Praca, there is a choice of 15 restaurants, serving Mediterranean, Chinese, Indian and Italian food, so always a menu to suit any taste. If you fancy eating less formally, then the beach front cafes will welcome you. The bars are lively and serve excellent tapas. 

The nightlife at the resort is not particularly late and it certainly isn't loud, however there is always plenty going on, such as indoor and outdoor events, shows, concerts and a nightclub. The only reason why you might choose to spend the evening elsewhere is because you want to party and there are two excellent places close by.
