Six reasons to visit...Vilamoura


There’s something for every taste and budget, with the particular emphasis on international cuisine. In the marina itself, there’s a clutch of good Asian restaurants, including Zu Yi (Chinese) and Tako (Japanese). For upmarket hotel dining there's EMO restaurant at the Tivoli Victoria whilst on the outskirts, on the EN-125, try the rib-sticking traditional Portuguese fare at Ze do Norte.


Purobeach adapts its style and music to suit the time of the day, with the food, drink, themed events and even tai chi and massage areas making this one of 'the' spots to spend summer. Hit the comfortable beach bar at NoSoloAgua on Praia da Falesia for cocktails at sunset. Or enjoy a cold beer at Sete – there are plenty of bars on Vilamoura marina, but only this one is owned by Portuguese football legend Luis Figo, hence the multitude of TV screens tuned to the sports channels. A great place to watch top international or league matches. Later on, try your luck at the casino, and round off a night of dining, gambling, floor shows and live music at the casino's in-house Blackjack’s, one of the Algarve’s liveliest and longest-established discos.


There are a clutch of shops around entire circumference of the marina, selling leading international and Portuguese fashion items and accessories, as well as numerous gift stores and jewellers for that perfect holiday present - for yourself or somebody at home.


Vilamoura is virtually the home of golf in the Algarve - top courses include Vila Sol, Victoria, Millennium and the Old Course. Relax with a soothing spa treatment at the Tivoli Victoria or the Tivoli Marina. Or charter a motor yacht from Just Charters for a day, half-day or sunset cruise.


Kids will love the slides, wave pool, lazy river and theme park rides at Aquashow in nearby Quarteira - one of the Algarve's most popular water parks which boasts Europe's biggest water-coaster.


Check in to the Hilton, the Crowne Plaza, Tivoli Marina or the Tivoli Victoria. Or see our Property Rentals section (click HERE) for options across the Algarve.
