    Praia da Rocha holidays are a fantastic choice for families and couples craving brilliant beaches, pretty coves and fabulous restaurants, all of which are within easy reach when you stay in this pleasant Algarve resort town. Praia da Rocha, close to the town of Portimão, boasts arguably the Algarve's most beautiful beach with vast swathes of golden sand running the entire length of the town, fringed by stunning cliffs resplendent in their burnt orange hues.

    Hire paddle boards from the beach and head over to pretty Ferragudo on a water taxi, or soak up the sights on a boat cruise along the coast – holidays in Praia da Rocha are paradise whether you want to set out on the water or simply lounge peacefully, beside it. The well-established resort has an array of attractions for families, friends and couples to enjoy, with Praia da Rocha beach offering volleyball and watersports, while little ones can play safely in the shallows. The waterfront restaurants, upmarket hotels, great-value resorts and elegant marina also give the whole resort a characterful, welcoming feel. For particularly tempting Portuguese cuisine and cocktails on the beach, head to the marina's renowned NoSoloAgua restaurant and bar - ideal for a snack at sunset.

    Potter along the promenade and appreciate the Belle Epoque architecture which still stands proud, or stroll 20 minutes to reach the hustle and bustle of pretty Portimão town. Better still, the charming nearby towns of Alvor, Carvoeira and Lagos are easy day trips to include on your Praia da Rocha holidays. If you're big on history and culture, inland town Silves is a leisurely 90-minute boat ride away, complete with a Gothic cathedral, Moorish hilltop castle and pretty cobbled squares worth wandering. Whether you're interested in basking on the beach, catching some culture or tucking into the tapas, you're bound to fall in love on Praia da Rocha holidays.
