Summary of the Beach Inspectors

At Portimão marina you'll have a noisy, active day on the beach. In the shopping mall on the way to the beach you can shop till you drop before you settle down in the sun. Praia da Marina stands for diverse beach activities. Just off the shore there are floating bouncy castles and an obstacle course where you can have lots of fun. On the beach, elegant beach bars tempt you to enjoy a drink or a delicious lunch under the gently swaying palm leaves. From the shaded loungers you can watch the many yachts and boats go by.

Praia da Marina - Colourful activity by the marina

Had enough of peacefulness and quiet tranquillity? Then come to Praia da Marina. This beach near the town will provide everything you're looking for. On the way to the beach you pass a shopping street by the marina. You don't need to worry if you've left your sunglasses or sarong at home as you can easily wander round the shops and pick up some new togs, sunglasses and other accessories.

At the beach you'll be welcomed with the newest chart and summer hits, booming from the speakers at the beach bars. If the sun gets too strong at midday, you can relax under the white awnings on the elegant wooden furniture and soft sofas. The regional food is very tasty and the choice on the menu makes it difficult to decide what to have straight away.

The bars exude a laid-back party atmosphere even in daylight, which is why they are very popular especially with young people. Drinks can be served to your lounger, so you can consume fruity Batidos under the shade of the beach umbrella.

Water sports lovers like coming to this beach and there are lots of activities on offer. The very first thing that catches your eye is the floating structure a few metres offshore - an inflatable water park where you can climb on oversized bouncy castles or have a go at the obstacle course. Behind it all small boats and yachts come and go.
