Dunas Beach Resort has approximately 50 private Self contained villas, and Melia Tortuga resort (the sister site) has facilities which can be used by villa guests. Tortuga and, of course, the beach are less than five minutes walk away. The location is great for watersports, sunbathing, use of Melia's facilities (spa, massage rooms, bars, international restaurants, kids area, plus more besides).
Perhaps, like many, you simply wish to soak up some sun and relax on the villa's comfortable sun loungers, with a cool drink and a book. When the sun eventually dips, maybe indulge use of the upstairs terrace and watch a vibrant sun-set over the sea.
There are many shops which sell food and drinks. The nearest mini market is 5 mins walk away located in Vila Verde Resort, called ' Falmers'. Tam Tams and Ocean Café bars are popular among many European nationalities, has excellent food, and are centre town, showing all the latest live Sky sports.
