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.

Great house in fantastic location

5 of 5
This house is located in the heart of Alvor. We were ten minutes' walk from the beach, and literally round the corner from all the restaurants and shops. The house has everything you could possibly need for your holiday ( and more!). When we arrived Carlos was there to meet us. There is nowhere to park at the house, but Carlos was able to show us a place a few minutes walk away where we we always managed to find a parking place after a trip out. Would definitely recommend this property, and if we return to Alvor we would definitely stay here again.

Nice house with a brilliant location

5 of 5
We spent 3 weeks in this very nice property in Alvor. The house is situated close to the beach, a five minutes walk, and the same distance from the city centre with good restaurants, shopping and supermarket. Especially the fish restaurant “O arco da velha” is recommended, we went twice and we were not dissapointed, but remember reservations. The kitchen in the house is well-equipped with all you need. There is a nice outside area with outdoor kitchen and a barbecue. All rooms has aircondition and are spacious. The clue of the house is the roof top terrace with a sea view. Alvor is very well situated both for the beach but also for tours in the surroundings. We visited both the west coast and also nearby larger cities, Lagos and Portimao. Portimao is best for Shopping, but do the cave boat trip from Lagos by small boat, the actially sail into the caves. We also visited Aqualand water park, also a good experience, buy tickets online the day before, we got a 50% discount. All comminication with the owners went smooth and everyting worked out as agrees. All in all this property and area is highly recommended.
