The Algarve & Praia da Rocha, Portimão:: The Algarve has a temperature climate almost all year round and boasts about 300 days of sunshine. Tourist season extends from March to October and it only really quietens down in winter. The wonderful sandy beaches of the Algarve are unspoilt and amongst the best in the world. Explore the majestic Sierra de Monchique or the rugged beauty of the western tip of the Algarve. Praia da Rocha is roughly a 50 minute drive from Faro, and is located between the town of Portimao and the peaceful village of Alvor. First and foremost when talking of a Praia da Rocha holiday the primary attraction is the 2 kms sandy beach, and what a beach it is! Another important place is the marina. The marina is a newer construction, and is home to restaurants and bars, where one can sit and have a meal or a drink with the view of the boats and yachts going by. Some people however might see a Praia da Rocha holiday as the ideal opportunity to experience the famous Algarve golfing experience.

Local Restaurants:: 'Castelos da Rocha' apartments have plenty of Portuguese dining options available just 250 metres away. The local food just has to be tried, with fresh fish straight from the mornings catch, and producing some great meals. With local wines and mouth watering steaks, what more can you ask for ! .............................................................................. The board walk along the beach front has 16 restaurants that stretch along the sand - designed to look identical in a futuristic fashion. Deceptively each has its own individual character inside. At night the whole main avenue is buzzing and vibrant. .......................................................................................................If you are looking for an ideal holiday destination in Algarve, the Castelos da Rocha apartment is a perfect place for you to reside and explore the surrounding areas.

Other Activities: In the region you will find sailing, water skiing, boat hire, wind surfing, fishing, walking, cycling, golf, tennis, a sports centre, scuba diving, go-karting, historic sites, a museum, a theatre/cinema, shopping areas. Less than 45 minutes drive away you will find climbing, mountain biking, horse riding, a zoo and a theme park. Boat trips to visit the local coastal caves are available at the marina. The infamous night life is only a 10 min walk. 20 restaurants within a 5 min walk. ... and even air plane leisure flights are flown near Alvor .................................. ........................ When the sun drops however, a Praia da Rocha holiday shows itself as one of the liveliest in the Algarve. There are a large number of restaurants and quieter bars for those who are seeking a quiet meal and drink, but there are many late night bars and discos catering for those who desire a night on the tiles, including a good number of Irish bars. For those wanting a little taste of Vegas there is a large casino !

One of the best holidays I've ever had.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this apartment with my two sons (16 and18) The owner met us on arrival and was absolutely wonderful. Providing us with essential food and had even baked us a cake! It was very reassuring to know that she was only at the end of the phone if we needed anything. The apartment was actually better than I had expected;a real home from home. Clean and well maintained.The air con was perfect, 1 unit in each bedroom and 1 in living room. The location was perfect for us a 5 min walk to the beach and strip for food,drink and dancing all night if wanted; yet nice and quiet for sleeping.The pools were perfect,clean and there was always a sun bed free;the guys at the poolside bar were friendly and made us very welcome, reasonably priced drinks and snacks were available day and night .I would recommend this to anyone wanting to experience all Praia da Rocha has to offer. We loved Taffys restaurant and even though they stop cooking at 10pm never turned us away when we arrive at almost 10! Food and service were excellent.We spent many fun nights in Farmers Bar, Irelands Eye,The Celt and Crow Park;the staff in these bars were great fun! Can't wait to return next year.

The Algarve region in southern Portugal is famous for being one of the country's busiest tourism centres and among the most popular resorts that draw in the crowds during the summer is the Praia da Rocha.

Praia da Rocha, the beach next to Portimão marina, is a bustling holiday resort in its own right. The beach itself is vast, even in the middle of summer there is always plenty of space.

The avenue, Tomás Cabreira, which runs along the top of the beach is full of restaurants, cafés, bars to suit all tastes, there are also places that feature local Portuguese food, as well as Italian and English fare.

Bars are numerous, fueling the exciting night life of the resort. Most bars either have live entertainment, satellite TVs, game rooms, or discos. A few, however, do not have any of these things and simply offer a quiet, relaxing spot for drinking and talking with friends.

Praia da Rocha is popular all year around and it was lovely to see people of all ages enjoying the February sunshine, taking a stroll, relaxing on a bench or enjoying a drink at one of the many cafés. There are all sorts of water sports available on Praia da Rocha, and a variety of boat trips are available from Portimão river front. It is centrally located for lots of the attractions the Algarve has to offer. If you want to Go Karting then that’s always an option.

NOTE: For Serving Military Families a discount of 20% will be given on all year round rates.

From the apartment you can walk, take a bus or taxi to the old town of Portimao adjacent almost to Praia da Rocha, there you can shop for both new and traditional Portuguese items, eat at one of the many restaurants or take a boat ride from the Marina front to the old town of Silves.

Once occupied by the Romans and later for over 400 years by Moors who named it Silves and at that time made it the capital of the Algarve. It is steeped in history with many quaint shops and lots of restaurants to dine in.

In the opposite direction from the apartment is the town of Alvor, a very pretty town with restaurants overlooking the estuary where can take boat rides or go kayaking, lots of shops selling traditional cork goods and the night life is made up of eating out or listening to music in the local bars some of which are Irish and great fun.

Further afield are the Sand Sculptures with a different theme every year, go karting at the Autodrome, Slide and Splash water park, or swim with the dolphins at Zoo Marina, these can all reached by car or organized trips that can be booked at the reception situated with the condominium area.

NOTE: For Serving Military Families a discount of 20% will be given on all year round rates.
