Vilamoura is a high-end holiday destination and the biggest private beach resort in Europe...
Vilamoura car rental is available for pick-up from a number of downtown locations and will give you the freedom to explore the town and further afield.
Take a stroll along the marina and admire the yachts parked in the bay where designer shops and restaurants line the outside.
One of Vilamoura's most famous restaurants, the Sete Café, co-owned by footballer legend Luis Figo, sits on the marina front and is well worth a visit.
There are two beautiful beaches in Vilamoura. Praia de Marina is to the east of the marina and is perfect for relaxing on a sunbed and admiring the scenery. It is also in the Michelin guide as one of the top 10 beaches in Europe. The other is Praia da Rocha Baixinha which is a long sandy beach which stretches to Albufeira.
There are plenty of activities to enjoy during your stay, including boat tours, dolphin watching, cave exploration and bird watching. Keen golfers will also be in their element, with a number of famous golf courses to take advantage of, including Vilamoura Old Course.
There is also a buzzing night-life scene in Vilamoura, with plenty of bars offering cabaret and live jazz. Near to the town centre, Casino Vilamoura Solverde attracts those who fancy a flutter.
Although purpose-built, Vilamoura is still rich in history. Just 100m away from the bay sits the Roman Ruins of Cerro da Vila. There is also a museum which displays items that were found at the site.
Vilamoura enjoys year-round-sunshine. The summer months of July and August peak at around 30C. The winter months are still warm during the day, averaging around 18C.
