From canopied beds on sandy beaches to golfing rounds, holidays to Vilamoura have got every box ticked. Located in central Algarve between Faro and Albufeira, Vilamoura benefits from year-round sunshine and temperatures that rarely dip below double figures. And, with all of this just three hours away from the UK, it’s no wonder holidays to Vilamoura are so popular.

 

Originally constructed in the 1980s as an elite golfing town, the resort of Vilamoura is a hit with golfers. Today, however, Vilamoura has got so much more up its sleeve. Between June and September, temperatures sit comfortably within the mid 20℃s, but even during the off-peak months you’re looking at mild temperatures and a few days of rainfall - great for last-minute breaks and winter getaways. 

 

At the centre of Vilamoura is its luxury marina which can, at full capacity, hold up to 1,000 boats. While the marina is usually a magnet for wealthy yacht owners, it’s also a central hub for affordable bars and restaurants - by day it’s a place to relax and soak up the rays, and by night it’s an area of bustling nightlife. The marina is also close by to two stunning beaches, Praia da Marina and Praia da Falésia, where kids both big and small can take part in heart-racing watersports. It’s one of the most upmarket resort towns in the Algarve, but that doesn’t stop holidays to Vilamoura being accessible for the whole family. Popular tourist attractions nearby include Zoomarine theme park, the castle of Loulé and Aquashow Park - not to mention the popular beaches of Albufeira.

 

Whatever you’re into, your holidays to Vilamoura will be unforgettable!

Places to go and things to do in Vilamoura

Paradise Purobeach

Paradise Purobeach

The ultimate way to unwind in the Algarve is on Purobeach, located on Vilamoura Beach next to the marina. There are two distinct areas for sheer relaxation: firstly, out along the beachfront, where you can take your pick from an ordinary sunbed or a luxury Balinese sunbed; or by the pool under the shade of the Tivoli Marina gardens. Both spots have access to a stylish bar, while the beachfront area hosts resident DJs throughout the day. There’s even the option to add on a luxury wellness treatment, such as a massage or a skin treatment, if you’re wanting to hit that bliss spot!

Zoomarine

Less than a half hour drive away from Vilamoura is Zoomarine, a theme park and water park that has amusements for the entire family. It’s more than easy to spend a whole day here making your way around all the sights - from the mini roller coaster and carousel, to the slides and aquatic playgrounds of Zoomarine Beach. Throughout the day there’s a host of presentations to watch, including flip-tastic dolphin shows and up-close-and-personal bird of prey displays. And while you’re there, take a walk through the habitat that’s home to a number of species from around the Americas, and enjoy interactive workshops at Oceanus aquarium.

Dom Pedro Old Course

Many flock to Vilamoura just for the opportunity to play a round of golf at The Old Course, an 18-hole championship golf course. The second oldest golf course in the Algarve, The Old Course has a number of holes to challenge both amateurs and the pros, all set within manicured grounds. It also comes complete with on-site facilities, while buggies and clubs are available to hire on-site. Those wanting something for the entire family can also swing by the Family Golf Park where there are two 18-hole courses to work your way around. There are a number of ancient Rome-themed obstacles to tackle as you aim for that number one spot.

Casino Vilamoura

There are few casinos in the whole of Portugal that can match up to Casino Vilamoura. Open until the early hours of the morning seven days a week, the casino can get busy - but it’s worth braving the crowds for a flutter at one of the tables, or a go on the game machines. Those wanting to soak up the casino atmosphere without the high-risk gaming can also pop by for a meal at one of the restaurants, a live evening show, or a tipple at the Big Bar. While you sip on your cocktails you can enjoy an audio-visual animation that’s projected across the huge planetary screen.
