Six reasons to visit...Vale do Lobo


The Praca, the bustling beachside complex at the heart of the resort, has 10 bars and restaurants offering everything from light snacks and drinks to family-friendly dining.


Just outside the resort is Paixa, which in addition to serving superb Portuguese tapas-style food, inside or al fresco, has a great champagne and cocktail bar. Late-night revellers might also want to check out Monty’s, part of Vale do Lobo’s central Praça complex, a popular steak restaurant that cranks up the volume as the evening progresses, with karaoke, live music and dancing every night.


Vale do Lobo Shopping, located at the Parque do Golfe complex, is home to a range of boutiques, a beauty centre, a golf shop, a newsagent and a bank. A few minute’s drive outside the resort brings you to the town of Almancil, which has several highly-recommended specialist shops, including Doces Pecados (confectionery), Ely Flores (flowers) and Mundo Saudavel (health food).


You won’t be short of things to do at Vale do Lobo - the resort has two world-class golf courses, the Royal and the Ocean, a golf academy where you can take lessons, a tennis centre and a spa. There’s also a year-round series of events, ranging from concerts and art exhibitions to professional sporting tournaments.


Water sports, tennis, trips to explore the Ria Formosa, or just great beaches…the region has tons of kid-friendly activities. And there’s a fully-supervised kids’ club at the resort’s on-site hotel.
