Praia de Vilamoura - Relaxation under straw beach umbrellas

The whole family will like Praia de Vilamoura. This beach near the town has a kilometre long area full of possibilities. It's easy to get to and always worth a visit. The attractive complex is surrounded by hotels and places to eat.

There are numerous restaurants and beach bars. As well as small snacks you will find local dishes and a selection of regional fish on the menu. The prices range from typical for the region to premium. Savour the flavours as you watch the colourful hustle and bustle on the sand.

Praia de Vilamoura is one of the most popular beaches in Portugal. You certainly won't be left wanting for any activities or facilities here. You will find beach loungers and straw umbrellas lined up neatly at regular intervals which, far from spoiling the scenery, emphasise the character of this tourist beach.

As well as beautiful loungers, Praia de Vilamoura also offers water sports activities. At one of the stands you can hire pedal boats or kayaks. Take one out onto the sea and see the place from a completely different perspective. Kids will have fun too because there are boats with built-in slides, which make the ride even more entertaining.

The programme of activities at Praia de Vilamoura doesn't stop when the sun goes down. In the evenings music is laid on in the chic beach bars and there are regular events where you can party into the small hours.
