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.

If you interested in staying in Alvor the location is impossible to beat. The property is steps away from the main street with a variety of bars and restaurants. There is nearby free on street parking too, if you have rented a car like we did. We used the patio area for breakfast each morning and the sun deck is wonderful for either soaking up the sun in the afternoon or having a relaxing drink and watching the sunset in the evening. The entertainment setup was great when we wanted a break from the sun, with a large smart TV, and fast WiFi connection throughout the house. We also would have been lost without the parasols and other beach equipment the owners have provided for guest use. We would normally stay in hotels on our holidays and were slightly apprehensive about booking our accommodation through sites like homeaway, but we needn't have worried. Communication with Zoe before we made the trip was first class and the experience when arriving and departing couldn't have been easier. Overall, we couldn't have been happier with our booking decision and we will definitely be back!

The communication with the owners was excellent, they answered all our questions quickly and efficiently. The apartment itself was exactly what we were looking for. It was fully equipped, modern, beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. They also provided us with a cot and a high chair for our baby. The apartment was very comfy - we spent a lot of time there, as our then 7 month old went to bed very early so it was important for us to have a nice space to relax in come evening time. I loved the fact that it was ground floor as it made access to the pool and garden super easy. The location is perfect. Literally a couple of minutes walk to the main street in Alvor with all the bars and restaurants, and a couple of minutes in the opposite direction to the local big supermarket. Alvor was fab, beautiful beach, lots of places to eat and drink, and the people were just so warm and friendly. I honestly can't fault anything about it. I would definitely return and would totally recommend it!
