Vilamoura is excellent, it enjoys the best of both worlds. Great bars and restaurants along with world-class golf courses only minutes away from the resort.

The town of Lagos in the Western Algarve is also a great option if seeking a more traditional Portuguese seaside resort experience with some unmissable golf courses including Palmares only a short transfer away.
