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 is really nice and exceptionally well furnished on a superb site. From the moment we arrived to the day we had to leave, we both had a fantastic relaxing stay. The weather was really hot when we arrived for the first five days and then a welcomed breeze arrived to cool things down more to our liking. Alvor is still as charming as ever and has not really changed over the years and we hope to re-visit in the near future. Bearing that in mind, we would most certainly stay at this apartment again as it is like home from home. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you need even down to beach towels which are provided,

The outdoor area was excellent , the pool was big enough to swim in and was kept clean , the apartment had everything that was required, perhaps a small microwave would be a plus but apart from that absolutely no complaints.We will be returning to this place. Thank you Markus & Sandra for your hospitality.
