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 terrace is a great size with a gate through to the pool area. It's in the best location for both the town and the beach. This was our first time in Alvor but won't be our last.It was such a good find with lovely restaurants,cocktail bars and a fantastic boardwalk that goes on for miles. We went on a boat trip along the river to Silves which was a lovely day out.The booking process was made so easy by Yasmin and she also arranged our taxis for the airport.This apartment would be our first choice to return too and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.
