Vilamoura is reputedly the largest private holiday development in Portugal and perhaps the whole of Europe. This is a holiday playground with the largest marina in Europe and plays host to many varied land and water based activities.
Five star luxurious Hotels, restaurants, shops and beautiful sea views surround the marina. A wide range of sports activities are available from tennis to lawn bowling or diving to clay pigeon shooting.
Located just twenty minutes from Faro Airport, it is readily accessible by air as well as sea.
There are five championship golf courses in Vilamoura, including the Arnold Palmer designed Victoria which opened in September 2004 and played host to the golf World Cup in 2005. The Portuguese Masters is played there every October and provides an excellent opportunity to see Europe's top golfers. There are golf academies at each of the golf courses and an additional independent golf academy is also available.
