Things to do

Sail the seas:

Portimao is well known across the globe as a top site for sailing. The location on the Atlantic Ocean makes for perfect weather conditions; the water is calm and winds are calmer here than on the western coastline. Portimao hosts numerous prestigious sailing events throughout the year, including the Portugal Match Cup.

Praia Da Rocha:

The golden sands of Praia da Rocha lure visitors year after year. This beach on the Atlantic Ocean boasts perfectly clean waters, soft sand, and a strong infrastructure; bars and restaurants dot the area making it a true oasis.

Alvor Boardwalk:

This boardwalk guides visitors through a nationally protected nature reserve. A wide variety of habitats are found in the reserve, including sand dunes, farmland, salt pans, as well as fresh and saltwater marshes. The birdlife is abundant and the scenery breathtaking.

Praia de Alvor:

Visitors to the Praia de Alvor can enjoy a day on a stunning, unspoilt beach. Warm golden sands are lapped by clear ocean waters. A few vendors are located nearby, otherwise the area is more or less untouched.

Museu de Portima:

An impressive collection of documents and artefacts await visitors to the Museu de Portima. Located in a former factory, the museum covers approximately 3,280 square feet. Guests can learn about the history of the area from prehistoric times to the present day. The museum also houses temporary exhibits.

Lighthouse Portimao:

The Portimao Lighthouse is located on the east side of the Portimao harbour. It was first lit in 1893 and has a light range of ten miles. The views from the tower are beautiful, making it a particularly romantic spot at sunset.

The apartment was very clean on arrival and it had all of the facilities that we required for a vacation. The apartment is located in a gated complex, which has a communal sunbed and pool area. This can get a bit busy, but probably due to the time of year we travelled (end of July). The apartment complex is on the edge of Alvor and is about 5-10 min walk to the main restaurant / bar areas. The beach is a good 20 minutes walk - something to bear in mind if you do not have a car or not very active. The level of information from the owner throughout the booking process was very good. Overall, I was very impressed with the standard of the apartment and would stay here again.

Perfect for family with two teenagers, loads of space, two bathrooms, very high spec throughout, kitchen fully equipped like at home. The extras were a nice touch, welcome essentials in fridge, loads of towels etc and even spare adapters in the drawers. The main balcony got the afternoon/evening sun and was a good size, it overlooked the road, but beyond was a grassy wilderness with goats and sheep grazing. The complex is gated and very secure, the apartment overlook the pool with a small seated area at your front door which gets morning sun. The pool area had a nice buzz although we went to the beach most days. The area of Alvor is a great mix of excellent beach, nice small but lively town which was perfectly safe for teenagers to have a little bit of freedom. The apartment is really close to the town main streets, with two great little local bar/restaurants just across the road for our nightly 'one for the road' drinks. We would definitely go back to both Alvor and this apartment, and would pack as much cause apartments so well equipped! Thanks Helen and Neil

However, we decided to try renting a private apartment, this apartment did not disappoint. We found the apartment through the HomeAway website, Chris was quick to respond and luckily for us our week was available for rental. This was a first time rental for the owners so we were the first people in the apartment. When we arrived in Alvor we were met and given keys and a tour of the apartment. Straight away we could see how Very clean, tidy and modern the apartment was...i am very particular with cleanliness!! It was light, airy and very spacious for the 5 of us, myself, husband 2 yr old daughter and grandparents. We had a lovely view of the pool from the spacious balcony. The complex is situated perfectly for both the beach and the town. Not too far to walk and this is with a pram! The complex was clean and well maintained (apart from however be aware of the lifts breaking down! we got some exercise i suppose walking up and down the stairs). We would not hesitate to come back to this apartment. We really enjoyed our stay both in Alvor and the Apartment.
