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.

Weather in the Portimao region

The Portimao region enjoys a temperate, Mediterranean climate. The summer months are hot and dry with temperatures averaging around 28ºC. However, temperatures can rise well into the mid-30s during the end of July and early August. The winters in Portimao are mild with temperatures rarely dropping below 10ºC. The most rain falls in March. Fall and spring are delightfully mild and significantly less crowded, making these seasons a nice alternative.

Travel to the Portimao region

Portimao is located approximately 40 miles from Faro Airport (FAO). Direct flights to Faro International Airport are available from most major cities in Europe all year. To reach the towns of Portimao region, hiring a car is a popular option. There are several agencies located at the airport, though pre-arranging can save time and money. The drive is a straight shot along the A22 and takes a little under an hour.

Very nice apartment in a perfect location

5 of 5
It was everything we expected. Nice apartment equipped with everything we needed. Two lovely balconies with a choice of sunshine or shade and a wonderful view from the back. Helen and Neil were there on time to meet us when we arrived and left a few essentials in the fridge to start our holiday which we appreciated. Overall this was a very nice apartment in a wonderful location. We would have no hesitation recommending this apartment as a perfect location for a visit to Alvor. Regards Gerry Walsh

Lovely apartment in a nice location

4 of 5
Enjoyed our week stay in early June. Unfortunately the swimming pool area was being refurbished and could not be used during our stay, however Carlos advised us the situation before we travelled and kindly offered us a discount on the price paid. The apartment is nicely positioned on the 6th floor with what will be nice views over the pool area and the ocean. The apartment is nicely furnished with everything you could possibly need. The main asset is the very large balcony, this stretches along the whole front of the apartment with access from each bedroom and sitting area. The only slightly negative is the lack of English TV channels, but hey you don't go on holiday to watch tv. The location is only a short walk to the sea front with plenty of restaurants and shops. Overall a good holiday. Would like to return in the future when the pool area is completed.
