The Algarve region

• Beaches in the Algarve - The Algarve is recognised for its fantastic coastline, typified by golden sandy beaches. There are a total of 74 Blue Flag beaches in the region; among them are Praia da Luz in the west, Ilha de Faro in the centre and Praia da Armona in the east, which is a beautiful secluded beach, accessible only by foot or boat.

• Watersports in the Algarve - The Algarve is ideal for activities such as sea kayaking, kiteboarding, windsurfing and wakeboarding, with facilities available close to most resorts. As you head west the conditions are increasingly accommodating for surfers, with larger swells on beaches exposed to the Atlantic. Diving is also offered, with wrecks and an abundance of marine life to discover off the coast.

• Golf in the Algarve - The Algarve is perhaps the best destination in Europe for golf. Many of the top-rated courses on the continent are located here; two of the best can be found at the prestigious Oceanico resort in Vilamoura. There are a total of 36, packed into a relatively small region ensuring that you'll never be far from a round.

• Water parks in the Algarve - Accompanying the world-class beaches is a good range of modern visitor attractions, such as the three premier water parks, Aqua Show, Aqualand and Slide and Splash. The latter is vast, and counted among the top attractions of its kind in Europe.

• History - The old city of Lagos is well worth seeing; it is encircled by preserved medieval defences, and boasts a tangle of narrow streets, home to a number of interesting buildings, like the Baroque São Sebastião church. In the city of Silves there is a spectacular medieval castle, considered one of the best examples of Moorish architecture in Portugal.


Praia da Senhora da Rocha, one of the most famous beaches in the Algarve, due to its magnificent sharpened promontory over the sea, where the Ermida de Nossa Senhora da Rocha was built in the 16th century. On the east side of the promontory is located the small village of Nossa Senhora da Rocha. You can access the Praia Nova through a rock tunnel underneath the promontory and starting at Praia dos Pescadores where you will find several cafes, bars and restaurants.

The closest town is Armação de Pêra and has the longest beach in Portugal and provides all water sports and beach bars. This fishing village has a maze of cobbled, winding narrow streets and alleys, which are lined with bars, famous fish restaurants as well as restaurants of international flavours and shops of all description. It also offers a wide variety of food & drink festivals and often has special nights of regional dance & music, where all the locals come along to enjoy the festive.

The ancient town of Moorish Silves is only 20 mins from Aramação de Pera. The beautiful old cities of Tavira, Tomar, Lisbon, Porto, Fatima and Batalha are easily accessible by car.

Other Activities: The famous Zoo Zarine with its interactive dolphins has water slides & fairground rides. Two water parks Slide & Splash and Aqua Land water parks are just 10 mins by car. There are several Golf courses nearby.

"Estupendo lugar para pasar unos días de vacaciones"

El apartamento está correctamente equipado con todo lo necesario, baño y cocina independientes, gran armario, terraza en la que se puede comer o cenar,... La cama está situada en el comedor, hay un sofá y una televisión, aunque no encontramos canales españoles, lo que a nosotros tampoco nos importó.. La piscina es bastante amplia, nada más salir del apartamento te encuentras con ella. La playa está cerca, se puede ir andando. El único problema el ruido, y es que nos tocaron unos vecinos un poco escandalosos, pero bueno nada que no se pudiera soportar. El wifi es de pago. La dueña Nibras muy amable, sin duda lo aconsejaría.
