About the property

Apartment at Castelos Da Rocha, Praia da Rocha, Portimao, Algarve, Portugal - Only 5 Minutes Walk To The Beach And Bars

One bedroom apartment in a quiet location, on the first floor of a 5 story apartment block with lifts or stairs to all floors. But only 5 minutes from the beautiful beaches and the bars/restaurants of Praia Da Rocha. Overlooking one of the four swimming pools within the complex of Castelos Da Rocha, this apartment gives you the best of both worlds. If you require a base for exploring or peaceful retreat, this apartment offers you both. The complex is only 45 minutes from Faro airport. Alvor and it's peaceful harbour or their lively backs streets are only 6km away. Portimao, the main town, is only 2km away. Recently, Portimao has finished the new race track and has been given the green light for motorbike racing. They also have the approval for track days for formula one cars. It will only be a short time now before they are given the green light for the Portuguese Formula One Grand Prix. Away from the noise of the race track, Praia Da Rocha is surrounded by first class golf courses.

Praia da Rocha


There are two beautiful beaches within a 5 minute walk away from the apartment. Along the beaches are bars and restaurants. A 15 minute walk along the prom takes you to Praia Do Vau. This area has beach bars and restaurants but just off the beach are 4 restaurants which sell great value meals and drinks. Our favourite one is The Jacaranda.


Faro airport is a 45 minute drive away. Car hire is available within Faro airport and many of them have cars on site. A shuttle bus transfer is also available from Faro airport to Praia Da Rocha. We can now offer private airport transfers. Price on request.


Silves with the Moorish castle is 14km from Praia Da Rocha. Portimao is 2km from Praia Da Rocha. Alvor is 6km from Praia Da Rocha.

Further Details:

Just a 15 minute walk away are Aldi and Lidl and if your shopping is a little on the heavy side to carry back, a taxi will cost you about 6 Euros back to the apartment. Praia Da Rocha has plenty of supermarkets, gift shops and wine shops along the sea front. There are also banks and cash points in amongst the bars and restaurants. On the way to the beach there are local stalls which sell anything from fruit to beach towels. Just outside of Praia Da Rocha is the water park Splash and Slide. The new Autodromo Do Algarve is approximately 15 minutes away. They have track days every month.
