Travel Guide in Vilamoura Old Town

Vilamoura is a beautiful area in Central Algarve, situated along Portugal's stunning south coast. It's one of Europe's largest tourist resorts, comprising a range of world-class facilities to ensure when you book villas in Vilamoura, you'll have the holiday of a lifetime. From the marina to the Golf Academy - as well as the area's six golf courses - there's plenty to keep you entertained, and there are always casinos, excellent bars, and an expansive, blissful beach to enjoy too. Whether you fancy your chances at sailing off the shore, or spending lazy days with ample sun, sea and sand, booking holiday accommodation in Vilamoura is a great choice.

Things to Do in Vilamoura

There are two main beaches in Vilamoura, and many tourists are happy to spend their days lazing on the sands! There are also six golf courses, including the Old Course, the Pinhal Course and the Victoria Clube de Golfe, so remember to bring your clubs. Those in search of some pampering will love the town's spa, which has an array of indulgent treatments on offer as well as waterfalls, gardens and Turkish baths. Of course, there are also excursions to sites of interest if you want to get out and about: book a boat trip to nearby caves, go horse-riding in the surrounding forests, or explore Faro, Albufeira or Loule.

Places to See in Vilamoura

When you choose holiday homes in Vilamoura, you'll find so much to see in the area. Although it might prove challenging to drag yourself away from the swathes of sand, head to the centre of Vilamoura to find Roman ruins and museums. Cerro da Vila is located at the heart of the town, and boasts an ancient, ruined bathing complex complete with intricate mosaics. There's a great museum too, telling the story of the Roman inhabitants who lived here, as well as ancient Roman docks and the ruined funeral tower. Once you've taken in some of the area's history, head for the magnificent marina. This is the focal point for those renting holiday rentals in Vilamoura, as its bars and restaurants overlook the yachts in the bay.
