Read more about Vilamoura

A mighty corner of the Algarve that boasts the biggest marina in Portugal, the town of Vilamoura oozes an effortlessly upmarket atmosphere, with high-spirited nightlife and white sandy bays that stretch out for as far as the eye can see. From laid-back sunset beach bars to friendly local restaurants and a big bustling marina to explore – there’s something for everyone on these sun-soaked shores. Opt for a family-friendly hotel with tonnes of fun facilities, choose a stylish pick for your mate's escape or find a couples holiday hideaway with a special romantic touch.

Beaches
Vilamoura’s two main beaches: Praia de Vilamoura and Praia de Falésia are separated by the marina that sits at the heart of this Mediterranean town. Praia de Falésia’s wide golden sands stretch along to the next town for over six kilometres, running alongside some of the most scenic cliffs of this coastal region. It’s a great place for an afternoon hike and there’s a handful of beach bars you can stop off at for a cheeky cocktail on your return. On the other side of town, the Praia de Vilamoura offers more crisp soft sands and twinkling clear waters. It’s located next to many of the big hotels and offers a great range of facilities so it’s always a hit with holidaymakers.

Food & Drink
Enjoy around-the-world cuisine easily at the marina, be it breakfast or dinner, coffee or cocktails, snacks or starters – there're so many different eateries and watering holes to discover here. Tuck into authentic Portuguese cuisine at a local restaurant, find a corner-side café for a morning pick-me-up and end sun-filled holiday days the best way by heading out for a feast with the family.

Culture
If you feel like a little Portuguese adventure to soak up a spot of culture on your travels, then take the short hop to Loulé. This picturesque little village is less touristy than the by-the-beach towns, so it’s a great way to get a better glimpse into the local way of life here. Whilst you’re here be sure to check out the Fonte do Cadoiço waterfall, the Loulé Saturday Market and the Bicas Velhas heritage site.

Nightlife
As the sun sets, the marina comes to life with neon lights and disco tunes. From Irish bars to classy cocktail venues and laid-back beachside lounges, lively Vilamoura nightlife offers something for everyone. The town is also home to a huge casino that’s a big attraction here. Get dressed up and roll the dice for a night of slots and cards – it could just be your lucky evening.
