The Eastern Algarve is one of Europe’s true hidden gem golfing destinations. Offering golfers a stunning array of championship golf courses, enjoyable holiday golf experiences, some truly unique accommodation options and holiday resorts that offer a taste of the authentic Algarve. The East Algarve also offers some of the very best value for money golf holidays in Europe with pricing and quality levels often exceeding many other areas of the Algarve too!
When not enjoying some fantastic golf, you can visit some truly untouched towns and villages alongside some unforgettable beaches.
The Eastern Algarve has some great accommodation options. If seeking a luxury golf resort experience, then we recommend the Villas or Clubhouse Suites at Monte Rei. If you prefer the beachfront location and close to all of the amazing golf courses in the East of the Algarve, then look no further than Octant Praia Verde and ensure you play the Seve Ballesteros designed Quinta do Vale Golf Club. If all inclusive is more your preference, then it has to be Robinson Club as an enabler to play the terrific Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima golf courses right on your doorstep.
Staying in the charming riverside town of Tavira is one of our recommendations if looking for a traditional Portuguese holiday experience. This lovely town is perfect for golf trips because you can play all of the best golf courses in the East of the Algarve within a short transfer and then sample some cozy bars, restaurants and coffee shops of Tavira alongside the fantastic local scenery and day trips.
