Praia de Vilamoura


Praia de Vilamoura


The welcoming Vilamoura Beach is located between the eastern jetty of the marina and the dock at Quarteira, and is backed by one of Europe’s largest tourist developments.

What was formerly the Quarteira Estate has now been transformed into an enormous landscaped leisure area offering a host of activities. Golf is the resort’s top sport but there is also an aerodrome, horse riding centre, shooting club, cross-country, cycle and pedestrian trails, tennis and squash courts, coastal cruises, art galleries, a casino and a marina with a sophisticated setting comprising shops and open-air cafés and restaurants.

In Vilamoura, ecological issues are also considered fundamental; the Environmental Park, which encompasses the final stretch of the Quarteira Stream, is home to various species of birds that take shelter amid the dense reed plantation growing in this wetland area. And at the Cerro da Vila Archaeological Museum, you can travel back in time to a first-century Roman fishing town.
