About the location
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 an incredible five 18-hole courses.
