Whilst it offers nearly everything you could want, arrange to rent a car to ensure you don’t miss out on the gems in the surrounding area.
Enjoy Some Time in Quinta do Lago
Pack a picnic and explore the parkland trails on foot or go horse riding and play tennis. You could also enjoy some retail therapy at the interesting range of boutiques and enjoy a cool drink in the plaza.
If you want to play some games of golf, but don’t want to travel too far then Quinta do Lago should suit you well. Home to three courses, Laranjal and the South and North, you will be able to tee off to your heart’s content. There are also around 30 courses in the surrounding area too!
Drive Around the Area
Make your way to Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, an area of wetland and dunes which protects a wealth of flora and fauna. You might even spot some flamingos. It is here that you find the nearest beach. If you fancy a stroll, you could even wander over to Vale do Lobo.
Take a drive to Olhao; the largest port in the Algarve and full of charm. Explore the two waterfront markets, take a stroll along the promenade and cool off in the shaded gardens.
Traverse to Quarteira where you can enjoy some time wandering along the promenade. There is a waterpark here as well, so perfect if you have the kids in tow. If you are however keen to escape the hustle and bustle, take the opportunity to walk to neighbouring Vilamoura.
