Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Praia da Rocha, Portugal your home away from home

Praia da Rocha is the Algarve’s second largest holiday resort, located right on the coast in the Western Algarve, Portugal. There are some wonderful private apartments to rent in Praia da Rocha, located within a short walk of the famous 2km long Praia da Rocha Beach and with all the luxury you deserve on your well earned break. One thing is for sure; if you rent a Praia da Rocha villa once, you will be sorely tempted to keep returning year after year, like so many families do.

Things to do on holiday in Praia da Rocha, Portugal

Anyone trying to find out what Praia da Rocha in Portugal is like can take heart from the fact that there are very few people who only visit a Praia da Rocha apartment once! There is a huge amount to enjoy from a Praia da Rocha villa or self catering apartment on Praia da Rocha beach, from the activities of the beach to the plentiful family attractions which adorn the surrounding area. There are two water parks, a zoo and two famous marine-life parks where you can watch displays and even swim with dolphins. Family holidays are wonderfully catered for from a Praia da Rocha villa, with activities suitable for all ages and interests.

Of course, it is the beach which really creates the demand for private apartments to rent in Praia da Rocha, with over 2km of fine, golden sand backed by the fantastic sandstone geological formations that give the resort its name. There are a number of excellent beach bars along the length of the beach, meaning that there are people relaxing by the sea from early in the morning until late into the evening every day during the summer. You can easily arrange a whole host of water sports from your Praia da Rocha villa, from windsurfing to scuba diving, banana boating to sailing.

There is some fantastic walking to be done in and around Praia da Rocha too. The coastal paths that stretch in either direction along the back of the beach are stunning, walking along the back of the varied cliffs overlooking the azure waters of the Atlantic. One of the more popular is the 20 minute stroll along the coast to Portimao, although if you would like to do some more serious hiking, the peaks of the Monchique Mountains are perfect for stretching your legs. You can also head into the hills on horse back or bicycle, and there are plenty of options for renting equipment/hirelings and local guides. Details on local stables and route maps are available from the Praia da Rocha tourist information centre.

As with much of the Algarve, there are plenty of top class golf courses surrounding the Praia da Rocha resort. As long as you have your handicap certificate with you, you should have no trouble arranging a tee off time from your self catering Praia da Rocha apartment. Details of local courses are available from the Praia da Rocha tourist information offices.

Weather in Praia da Rocha, Portugal

The Mediterranean climate of the Algarve is a real asset for anyone with a self catering apartment or villa in Praia da Rocha.

Even in winter, conditions are warmer and dryer than they are in the height of the British summer!

Travel to Praia da Rocha, Portugal

Everything is shiny & new & it's equipped with everything you could need. It's only a short walk from the gorgeous beaches & lots of bars and restaurants - great location. The only downside is no WIFI in the apartment itself, but it's available downstairs. The apartment is located within a large hotel/holiday complex which includes a large pool. We didn't use this as it was very busy but as the beaches are so close, this wasn't a problem. Overall - a great stay at a lovely property!
