Things to do

Vilamoura marina:

The marina is Vilamoura’s main activity centre. An impressive range of restaurants, bars and designer shops line the promenade, and the multitude of yachts are fascinating to look at. Many boat and fishing trips take off from the marina and are an excellent way to spend a day.

Beaches:

Vilamoura has two beaches within the city limits. Praia da Marina to the east of the marina is a busy spot with plenty of water sport activities to choose from. To the west is the more relaxed Praia da Falesia. This long stretch of sand leads all the way to Olhos de Agua.

Vilamoura Casino:

Vilamoura Casino is an exciting destination: aside from a large number of gaming rooms, it hosts regular evening entertainment. Nights of traditional dance and song as well as revues and magic shows are held here. The current program is available online.

Loule:

The 13th century town of Loule is located ten miles northeast of Vilamoura. Remnants of a 13th century castle draw in visitors, as does the daily market where fresh fruits, vegetables, spices and fish are sold. An added highlight is the gypsy market held every Saturday. Locals sell earthen pots, wooden toys, handmade lace and more.

Ria Formosa:

Found east of Faro, this sprawling natural park has an intricate network of lagoons, marshlands and elongated islands. Boats depart from Faro to many of the narrow islands.

Albufeira:

The busy and exciting city of Albufeira is one of the most visited in Portugal. Its famous strip is home to countless bars, restaurants and clubs for those looking to party in style. The Old Town is a quaint affair with cobblestone streets and an old clock tower. Fishermen's Beach, located steps away from the Old Town, is clean and safe.

Fantastic Family Holiday in Vilamoura

4 of 5
Thank you Carol for renting your beautiful 3 bedroom apartment to my family for 3 weeks in July '17. Our 3 kids loved the very private quiet pool, most of the time we were the only ones using it. The Apt. was exactly as described - homely, clean, fully functional kitchen, and the newly renovated showers were a prefect way to end a day of sunbathing before heading to the marina. Only downside was the location is a little too far to walk to the Marina so a car is definitely recommended, which i must add was highlighted by Carol from the outset. I would recommend this apartment in a heartbeat. Thank you for the memories. J.

Excellent location

5 of 5
We have been to Vilamoura a few times before and the location of Aquamar apartments has been the best yet. It's got a lovely pool which has a lot of coming and going throughout the day so there are always usually sunbeds. The apartment itself has everything you will need. Adelaide our contact met us on the first day and was helpful answering a few questions throughout our stay. We will definitely be back!
