Things to do

Golf:

The Algarve region is known for its golf courses, and Balaia has its own 9-hole course. It is located directly on the cliffs, providing players with some nice views. A driving range and putting green as well as a Gold Academy are also on site.

Praia da Maria Luisa:

This sandy beach is one of the two located in Balaia. It is quiet and secluded, though the beach bar located here is popular with tourists and locals alike. The surrounding cliffs provide a beautiful backdrop.

Misericórdia Chapel:

This chapel was constructed atop a former Arab mosque in the 15th century. The devastating earthquake in 1755 all but demolished the original structure and what visitors see today is a the reconstruction of the body and main doorway in the Gothic style.

Castle Walls:

Visitors to Balaia can see the remains of the original castle walls. The 1755 earthquake destroyed most of it, but the ruins of one of the towers can be found at the Rua Joaquim Pedro Samora. It served as the northern entrance to the city.

Xorino Cave:

This interesting natural formation is located on the beach, within the cliffs near Albufeira. It served as a hiding place for the fugitive Moors during the Christian Reconquest in the 13th century. Guided tours are available during high season.

Albufeira Strip:

The famous Avenida Dr. Fancisco Sa Carneiro, or 'strip' in Albufeira is the place to go for a night out on the town. It is located about two miles from Balaia. Many of the bars and clubs located here are open 24 hours a day, and there are numerous restaurants to choose from.

Beautiful villa, great location!

5 of 5
we go to algarve every year during winter time. this year we decide to go to albufeira (usually we go to vilamoura). we are not disapointed at all. Villa California has everything we needed. Is close to several amenities and the beach, has lots and lots of space. pool heating is available really nice to use it in the winter. golf court nearby. All in all it was what we expected . We have booked the property for next summer also :) amazing!

We have stayed in Villa Honolulu for 1 week in january. We were a group of 3 couples that go to the Algarve every year to play golf. This was one of the best properties and service that we ever had. We will definately come back.
