The Algarve region
Albufeira is one of the most popular resorts in the Algarve and is just a 20 minute walk away from Oura Vale, along the beautiful coast. It is a bustling town yet still manages to retain much of the original charm and character of its fishing village history. You can explore the Old Town with its maze of narrow white streets and array of shops, bars and restaurants serving traditional and cosmopolitan fare. Albufeira has two magnificient beaches, the golden Town Beach, reached through the historic Moors' tunnel, and the Fisherman's Cove with its wide sandy shore and brightly painted fishing boats. At night the town comes alive with music and the Town Square provides a venue for artists. Yet one can always find a quiet spot to drink some wine and relax.
Golfers find the Algarve a paradise. There are three local golf courses, and the world famous Villamoura is only a 30 minute drive away. Children and teenagers will enjoy the Zoo marine centre at Guia. The huge Algarve Shopping centre at Guia is also worth a visit. Day trips are available (with pick up stops all around the local area) to Lisbon, Fatima and Seville. These are very reasonable, and are recommended.
The lovely beach Praia d'Oura is only 500 meters from the Apartment. It is a fine sandy beach and is very wide and long, stretching around a curved bay and protected by typical sandstone cliffs. There are a number of beach bars and restaurants where you can relax with a coffee and enjoy the beautiful views.
The beach offers a wide variety of watersports including windsurfing, water-skiing, parascending, jet skiing, fishing, and the always popular banana boat rides, while scuba diving can be found in the next cove along. Why not explore the hidden grottoes of the stunning Algarve coastline by taking a boat trip? There are many quiet coves to be found around Praia d'Oura and Albufeira can be reached on foot along the coast. There are also some spectacular cliff-top walks.
Visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants and bars in the area offering everything from traditional Portugese fare to carveries. Everything to make Oura a great spot to visit !
