Things to do

Praia da Falesia:

Acoteias' 3.5-mile-long beach is covered in fine, golden sand and lapped by crystal-clear waters. Red sandstone cliffs provide the backdrop while acting as a suitable barrier to any strong winds. Beach bars are scattered along the coast, and the beach is a mere 10-minute walk from town.

Zoomarine:

This family fun centre is found a few miles from Acoteias in Guia. Here visitors can watch dolphin, seal, and sea lion shows and gaze upon tropical birds and birds of prey. Zoomarine has also got a 4D cinema, a small amusement park, and swimming pools.

The narrow, cobblestone streets of the old city centre criss-cross their way up the hillside and are dotted with charming cafés; traditional restaurants are also plentiful.

We stayed for 2 weeks with our 2 boys and enjoyed every minute. Ideal if you don't want the noise and pace of a resort but conveniently situated not far from everything you need. Shops restaurants bars etc just a short walk away. It's a drive (or long walk) to the beach and a definite drive to Albufeira and Vilamoura. The owners could not have been more helpful and good to us despite a language barrier. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Excellent property - we will definitely return.

Within easy walking distance of Falesia Beach, supermarket and variety of restaurants and bars. We especially enjoyed relaxing by the pool and sampling the local produce from the daily specials menu at Paolo's restaurant.
