The Algarve region
We have been coming to the Algarve on and off for some 15 years now and if you are interested we would like to share some ideas for either meals, visits or days out for your pleasure.
The Algarve has glorious beaches all the way along the Algarve but here are a couple of our favourites
Take the old bridge out of Portimao across the estuary and at the first traffic lights trun right and follow signs for Ferragudo and Praia (which is Portuguese for beach). You will come across Ferragudo town first which is a lovely spot for taking in lunch. Continue following the signs for Praia until you come to the entrance to the beach. You will probably come across cars parked along the road side, park up where you can and follow the path down the steps to the beach. The restaurant mounted at the top of the steps is fantastic for lunch but can get busy.
Head into Alvor from the apartment by taking a right out of the Apartment complex over the small bridge and a left at the T Junction some Â½ mile down the road, you will go past an aerodrome on your right before entering Alvor. Follow signs again for Praia to get to the Beach.
This town next to the coast is a favourite of ours for both the beach and two restaurants. It is situated on the other side of Albufeira and is signposted from the EN125 or use the map.
The beach is great !
This resort is the next resort along from Ferragudo and can be accessed by going past the Ferragudo beach or preferably by staying on the EN125 and taking the signposts for Carvoeiro. This resort is best utilised by going to the beach late in the afternoon and heading straight into the many restaurants after coming off the beach.
You are spoilt for choice, but here are a few of our favourites
OBuque and Lanterna
These two restaurants are in Estombar which can be accessed from the EN125 or by taking the old bridge out of Portimao across the estuary and at the first set of traffic lights Lanterna is on your right. If you go through these lights and head into Estombar, Obuque is on your left.
Chicken piri piri in Monchique
Any restaurants on the road to Foia after coming out of Monchique are great for Chicken Piri Piri. If you go to any restaurants we recommend try these because the chicken is great and the views down the valley looking at the Algarve are a must see. For lunch or evening meal the Â½ hour drive up to the top are well worth it.
If you walk to the bottom of the hill where the boats come in, the restaurants here serve wonderful fish all cooked on large open barbecues on the street. The smell generated from these barbecues has your mouth salivating even before you have sat down.
This restauarant is in Olhos deAgua, the town is situated on the other side of Albufeira and is signposted from the EN125. LaCigale restaurant is on the right handside overlooking the beach, almost on the beach front. When the sun is going down and the tide is up, sitting on the balcony, eating crab with the waves crashing on the rocks below is one of my perfect places.
Olhos deAgua has another good restaurant on the beach front where the boats come in.
This restaurant and bar is great because it is in the Lagos marina and sits beside all the boats tied up. The menu is extensive and the restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere.
These restaurants are some of our favourites, however if you try any of the above and you like chicken try Monchique, it is worth the Â½ hour drive just for the views.
Our recommendation is the Slide and Splash water park near Lagoa, all the usual favourites â??torpedoâ?? etcâ?¦.,This park is also good for young children as it has a separate area with smaller rides.
I know what you are thinking, dolphin shows outside of Florida are a bit of a let down. Well you are going to have a nice surprise, this park is really good, with shows for Dolphins and sea lions throughout the day. It has fairground rides and when you are ready to cool off it has a swimming pool as well, therefore do not forget your swimming cossieâ?¦..
Algarve Shopping Centre
Bored of the sun, want to give the credit card a go, then try the Algarve shopping centre near Guia on the EN 125, great shops for men and women.
Places of Interest
Silves has a great Moorish castle to explore with turrets and dungeons, all the usual castle stuff, but the town is worth exploring as well.
Loule market and town. Market day is on a Saturday for the typical Portuguese market, however Loule town offers many cafes and restaurants for lunch.
Like big boats. Then try Villamoura marina. In the evenings put your best frock on and wander round the marina like everybody else does !!!
Our personal favourites may not be what everyone wants from their holidays, therefore we have a book on the Algarve in the apartment, which has many descriptions of days out and places of interest for your information and enjoyment.
The Oasis Parque properties are either privately managed or can utilise the on site management company â??Careways Management Servicesâ??. Our Apartment is managed on our behalf by Careways in Portugal and provides you our client with the comfort of knowing there is someone you can talk to for help, problem solving or general advice.
Change over cleaning shall be done weekly (includes changing and washing of all bed linen and towels but does not include washing dishes).
We have provided with the apartment 4 Pool access cards, if for any reason any of these cards are lost, replacement cards are available from Careways for 25 Euros each card. In the high season please ensure you have your cards with you when using the pool facilities as these will be checked to ensure any unwanted guests are evicted. Please ensure you take the children's play area key with you if you are going to access the swimming pool via the children's play area.
The developers of this estate are keen to ensure the enjoyment of the leisure facilities for everyone. With this in mind they have asked that an adult accompany all children under the age of 10 around the swimming pool (both the indoor and outdoor pools) and do not leave children of this age to their own devices. No inflatables are to be used other than children's armbands.
The tennis courts are free for all our guests of the apartment. It is advisable to reserve court times at the management office prior to arriving to play to avoid disappointment.
Children's play area
The children's play area is free for all our guests of the apartment. Please ensure you take the children's play area key with you to gain access.
The Boavista Golf resort, which is owned by the Emerson Group as is Oasis Parque provides reduced green fees for all Oasis Parque clients.
For alternative golf look in attached Algarve Golf Supplement for all golf courses along the Algarve.
My personal favourite is Palmares, approximately 15 min drive towards Lagos. The course is set amongst sand dunes and a forest providing two very contrasting front and back nines. If the golf is not going your way the views are wonderful especially from the 19th hole which can provide some comfort after a bad score.
Turn left out of Oasis Parque and onto the old EN125. Approximately half a mile on your left hand side you will find the new Aqua Shopping Centre.
For a shopping experience similar to what you are accustomed at your local shopping centre try the â??Modelloâ?? shopping Centre in Portimao. This can be found by turning left out of Oasis Parque and onto the old EN125, continue past the E.Leclerc shopping centre and turn right at the next roundabout. Continue along dual carriageway until you see the Modello on your left. Go round the roundabout and come back on yourself to enter the carpark
For a shopping experience similar to what you are accustomed at Bluewater, Lakeside or Meadowhall, try the â??Algarve shopping Centreâ?? in Albufeira. For clothes shopping this is excellent for men and women with shops including Zara, Monsoon and Mango. The shopping centre is sign posted on most roads around Albufeira but is found on the EN125 between Guia and Albufeira.
A public telephone can be found in the E.Leclerc Shopping centre
The nearest petrol station to Oasis Parque is found at the E.Leclerc Shopping centre.
Your nearest hospital can be found in Portimao and is signposted regularly at most major junctions.
Show your passport â?? or E111 if you are not a UK national â?? to the hospital authorities and ask to be treated under the EU arrangements. Basis hospital treatment is free but you will have to pay for secondary examinations, such as x rays and lab tests.

"Great Weekend! Lovely apartment and resort."
Great apartment for friends or family loads of space with a real family feel. Was like home from home. Child friendly, great pool area which has a security entry point, good bar/restaurant on site too. Local amenities are within walking distance, Alvor short taxi ride away with some great restaurants, and bars including karaoke if you're looking to perform. All in all fab weekend, great apartment, great food, drink and excellent company. Would recommend to groups, couples or families.
