Vilamoura is one of the longest established resorts on the coast. Situated about 25kms from Faro Airport, it has a smart marina, filled with boats and ocean-going yachts as its centrepiece. Around the marina are parades of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars overlooking the waterfront which has cocktail bars, Chinese food, pizzas, pancakes, burgers - there is even a Polynesian restaurant! During the summer, the marina has a vibrant atmosphere and this is very much the place to see and be seen. Talented artists will paint a good likeness for just a few euros, or you may prefer to stroll past the many opulent yachts. Beside the marina, there is a long, sandy beach. If you feel adventurous, there are boats to take you big game fishing or you can hire one for a leisurely trip along the coast for sunbathing and a picnic.
Vilamoura is perhaps best known for its...
top quality golf courses and with another at the nearby Vila Sol resort there are six within a very small radius. For more information please see Algarve Golf Desk
. There is also horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, tennis, fishing, scuba diving and water skiing. Browns Health Club has aerobics, tennis, squash, a sauna, swimming pool and snack bar - temporary membership can be arranged locally. Vilamoura also has a casino, with nightly shows, and a cinema.
Perfect for families, with many of the villas close to the exciting marina. Also great for sport lovers, especially golf!
Tends to be very, very busy in the height of the summer and it is often difficult to get tee times and there can be long waits in restaurants.
