Vilamoura is a premier resort on the magnificent Algarve coast, famous for its bustling marina, its golden beaches and its superb golf courses as well as its shops, bars, restaurants and casino. Nearby amenities include water parks, Zoomarine aquarium and marine park and the largest offer of facilities and activities of any resort in Portugal. Vilamoura also embraces a vast wetland area, extremely rich in plant and bird life and close to the marina is the site of an old Roman villa. It is situated just 20 minutes drive from Faro airport.

The bus route services the Vilamoura area (including supermarket and Marina), as well as local towns and villages, e.g. Quarteira, Faro and Albufeira. The local taxis are also reliable and cheap. Free use of two public bikes also provided.
