Vilamoura Holiday Guide

Purpose-built to be self-sufficient, Vilamoura is a large Algarvean resort that is a popular beach holiday destination for all ages. One of Europe's largest tourist complexes, it covers some 2,000 hectares of land ranging from pine forests to long, sandy beaches and offers almost every form of sport and entertainment that you can think of.

Two large beaches stretch either side of the resort's stylish marina. Falesia Beach extends several miles to the west, offering unspoiled golden sands.

The resort's marina is the focal point for sailing and sea fishing trips. It's also the nightlife hub, with a host of bars and clubs and one of the few casinos in the area to host evening shows. A large variety of cafes, restaurants and boutiques can be found around the marina area.

With four championship golf courses nearby as well as more than 50 tennis courts, a lawn bowling club and shooting range the resort is the centre for many sporting holidays. Highlights for keen golfers are the 'The Old Course' at Vilamoura and Vila Sol Golf Course that compete with Europe's finest courses. Over 300 days of sunny weather every year guarantees great golfing conditions.

To the north of the resort there's a protected woodland area offering excellent terrain for hiking, cycling or horse riding. The newest waterslide park in the Algarve - Aqua Show - is just a 10-minute drive away.

The neighbouring town of Querteira, well known for its seafood restaurants, is a few minutes drive away. There's great variety on your doorstep, from old hill-top towns to explore to the extensive nightlife on offer at the resort of Albufeira - just 20 minutes away.
