Algarve, Portugal



Algarve, Portugal

Portimao is famous for its nice, sandy beaches backed by amazing red cliffs. Praia da Rocha is a big beach with warm waters. Behind the beach is a scenic boulevard with shops, bars, clubs and a casino. Praia do Vau is a beautiful, quiet beach if you want to escape the huge crowds that go to Praia da Rocha, but still want to be close to Portimão. Venture even further west and you’ll discover Praia do Alemão, a cosy beach with seven natural rock pools. These are great fun for families with children, with lots of hidden coves to discover. Stroll the beach walk from Praia do Vau all the way to Praia da Rocha.

Get an adrenaline kick from the jet skis and water skis, go windsurfing or flyboarding or discover the fascinating underwater world during a scuba diving trip in Portimao.

Portimão is actually known as the sardine capital of the Algarve but there are wonderful restaurants with lots of different cuisines.

The nightlife in Portimão is one of the best in the Algarve with a vibrant party area near the Praia da Rocha beach.

Transfer from Faro airport approx. 50 mins.
