The Algarve region
The Algarve is the southern most region of Portugal and benefits from more than 3000 hours of sunshine each year with the generally mild winters enticing visitors wishing to escape colder weather at home and take advantage of cheaper flights to enjoy winter sun breaks and golfing trips out of season. The region is well known for its 160 Km of coastline offering numerous Blue Flag awarded beaches, its 35 golf courses offering challenges for all players and the wide range of sports; however there is a wealth of cultural and natural attractions that draw visitors each year. Exploration of the region uncovers diversity from the coastlines with its modern resorts to the inland regions of the Monchique Mountains, traditional villages such as Alte Cacela Velha and Alcoutim and the river trips up the River Guardiana, the natural border with Spain.
Vilamoura is within a 30 minute drive from Quinta do Lago. Its 1000 berth marina offers diverse shopping, dining and activity options including mini golf, dolphin watching, clay pigeon shooting, sea fishing and the large casino with daily cabaret shows and night club.
