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.

Monte Laguna May 2017

5 of 5
We had a fab 2 weeks at Monte Laguna, apartment was very well equipped, well maintained & we felt very comfortable & safe with a small child. The fresh fruit, wine etc on arrival was a lovely touch. It was very quiet & most days we had the pool to ourselves. Would highly recommend & Luis was excellent at replying to my many emails to check things before we arrived.

The apartment was perfect - had everything and the location to the marina and beach was perfect.

5 of 5
From the moment we arrived, Melodie and her husband made us feel very welcome - they were waiting to greet us with Portugese cake and had left basics for us to use during our stay. The apartment was spotless and had everything you could imagine you'd need - the rooms were generously sized, the balcony the full length with plenty of seating areas and the all important table and chairs for early morning coffees in the sun. Only a five/ten minute stroll to the beach and marina and all the beautiful restaurants and bars. Would definitely return and recommend to friends.
