Praia de Vale do Lobo - A charming sandy beach for connoisseurs
Praia de Vale do Lobo in the south of Portugal is a sophisticated setting in beautiful natural scenery. The beach is situated between the two coastal towns of Faro and Quarteira. The journey here from Faro takes around half an hour and you should have no problem finding your way if you follow signs to the holiday resort of Vale do Lobo.
This luxury hotel is part of a tourist settlement that includes, amongst other things, a golf course and tennis courts. The broad area of sand, immediately adjacent to the resort, is lined with well-kept beach umbrellas and sun loungers. Here you will find not only a massage station, but also several exquisite places to eat. In the beach bar you can treat yourself to delicious cocktails and home-made burgers. Settle down on modern wooden furniture to the sounds of cool lounge music, or have your order served to you at your lounger. At Sandbanks Restaurant you can indulge in fresh fish dishes and seafood and at sunset you can round off your day's bathing with a glass of wine and superb food.
The fine, light brown sand stretches for around a kilometre along a very diverse landscape. You can head in either direction to find a little more peace and seclusion. There the wide area of sand is no longer lined with the tastefully presented, white holiday houses, but is bordered instead by a low-lying natural landscape and glowing red, sparsely vegetated cliff faces.
At Praia de Vale do Lobo you'll find lots of guests from the surrounding resorts. The crowd tends to be young and good-looking. Families, couples and singles from the Netherlands, Great Britain, Spain and Portugal come to Vale do Lobo to savour the beach’s special atmosphere.
