Luxury Vilamoura Holidays

Cosmoplitan coastal cool

Vilamoura

The jewel in the Algarve's crown, Vilamoura is a vibrant and cosmopolitan seaside town where life revolves around the spectacular coast. Two long, sandy beaches, both backed by a lively waterfront promenade, provide the perfect spot for swimming, watersports and flopping down on a towel.

At the town's heart, you'll find the marina. Filled with gleaming white yachts, it's something special, offering a huge choice of elegant bars, Portuguese restaurants and even a casino.

It's not all about the glamour, though – a fascinating history has left a wealth of sights, including Roman remains just a stone's throw from the marina, at the archaeological site Museum Cerro da Vila. Vilamoura is also a hit with golfers, thanks to the five 18-hole courses.

Natasha Starkin

Vilamoura’s marina is a lovely place to spend an evening. There are restaurants galore and there’s a great atmosphere on warm summer evenings when everyone’s dining outside.

Flight Information

Flights from the UK to the Algarve take around 2 hours 40 minutes.

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Faro airport to Vilamoura is approximately 40 minutes.

When to go

Summers in the Algarve get pretty scorching, so beach-goers can expect the mercury to top 30°C in July and August. The shoulder months of April, May and October stay at a pleasantly toasty low 20s, and even in winter, things rarely drop below 15°C – ideal for year-round golfers.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Portugal.

Tipping

A service charge won’t typically be added to your restaurant bill in the Algarve, so it’s common to leave a tip of around 10% of the bill. The same goes for taxi drivers – aim for 10% or round up your fare to the nearest euro. Tipping is not expected for bar staff, hotel porters or maids, although a euro or two would be appreciated for excellent service.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Portugal is Portuguese. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
