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.

                                                                                                      When we chose to book the villa we thought it looked stunning, the reality was even better, perfect in almost every way. We enjoyed a terrific week here and would definitely love to return in future. Great place to stay when the weather's good and nothing else to do but laze around, or in, the generous sized pool. It is within easy reach of the Marina (35 minute walk) and its a 5 minute cheap taxi ride back. If like us (8 adults) you have a rainy day then the games room and lounge come into their own! With large bright rooms we all felt we had our own space and the sheer size of the lounge and games room meant the house never felt crowded. Comfortable beds and settees, nice bathrooms, plenty of balconies and outside areas to relax in and a quiet residential area around you. Also within a 15 minute drive of Albufeira so well-positioned for access to golf and the Old Town.
