Situated on the southern tip of Portugal and slightly to the east, the temperatures here are pleasant all year round, warmest during July and August and remaining in the high teens through the winter months. Warmer temperatures in the summer months are tempered by the Atlantic breeze which tend to bring a welcome relief on hot sunny days.

Like many other resorts in the Algarve, golf is one of the major draws here. There are a number of famous courses and the more renowned venues do require a handicap certificate. The Oceanico Old Course is possibly one of the most renowned while the Oceanico Millennium Course, the Laguna Course and the Pinhal Course provide credible alternatives.

Vilamoura beach cove

Anyone visiting Vilamoura needs to note that there are some beautiful beaches which can easily be overlooked in favour of the temptations of the marina. The Praia da Rocha Baixinha beach leads directly onto the Praia da Falesia, which has wonderful cliff top views and an idyllic stretch of sand for those days when you want to relax in the sun. Praia da Falesia provides a good alternative to the Marina Beach.

 

 

Water sports such as paragliding and windsurfing are popular here and the ocean breeze makes for ideal conditions. Vilamoura does have something of a sporting heritage, having been host to the world famous Almond Blossom Cross Country until just a few years ago.

Vilamoura is one of the most luxurious holiday destinations in southern Europe and a paradise for golfers looking for first rate courses and summer sun.
