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

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.

                                                          Absolutely fantastic villa! Party of 5 adults and a 2 year old stayed for one week. Everything you needed was available, including items for use on the beach (even a bicycle was at hand). Manuela the owner was there to meet us on arrival to show us around - lovely helpful lady. Spacious villa and the pool was a bonus! lovely quiet street but only 3 minute stroll to the centre of Alvor and 10 minutes walk to beach with a toddler. Will definitely return again. Stayed in Alvor on many occasions but this is by far the best accommodation we've stayed in in Alvor! Thanks Manuela.

                                                          A spacious and wonderful holiday villa

                                                          4 of 5
                                                          We really enjoyed your fabulous and well equiped house. We were with 7 persons and our grandson, a 2 years old. Beds are wonderfull, bathrooms handy with so many people. Warmed swimmingpool was wonderfull. A beautiful garden with trees, palms and bushes. We had a little bit of trouble with the electricity and the main fuses dropped out. Within a few hours it was all fixed by the electricians. In spite of the weather we enjoyed our holiday. We really had to look out for the sun near the coast because we had to deal with heavy rain showers and partly Ray's of sun. Probably were were not lucky with the weather but enjoyed our stay in this wonderful villa.

                                                          The apartment was perfect for us - everything we needed available to us and all beautifully appointed. The pool and gardens are maintained to a really high standard. The town with shops and restaurants is within very easy walking distance and has everything needed for our stay.
