From canopied beds on sandy beaches to golfing rounds, holidays to Vilamoura, Algarve, 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 sure-fire hit for golfing fans. 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 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!
