Vilamoura is one of southern Portugal’s finest resort towns, offering you so much more than just stunning beaches and glorious weather. Originally, Vilamoura was constructed in the 1980s as an elite golfing centre, and today the town has matured into a stylish and sophisticated resort, boasting world-class golf courses and outstanding tourist facilities.
Vilamoura is a sprawling town encompassing numerous parks, multiple tourist developments and five golf courses, but its true centre is the exclusive marina complex. Found at the marina are modern hotels, gourmet restaurants and chic bars, and from here it is only a short stroll to the pristine beaches of Praia da Falésia or Praia de Vilamoura.
Vilamoura is unlike any other Portuguese town, gone is the dilapidated charm, replaced with striking perfection, which is simply expected by those who moor their million-euro yachts in the 960 berth marina

Vilamoura is the most refined of all the Algarve resort towns on the ocean side, and provides world class accomodation, stunning beaches, and a fantastic tourist centre. There is a lot to do within the central Algarve region including boat tours, waterparks, historic towns, and of course, golf. The five 18-hole golf courses make Vilamoura arguably the best location for a golfing holiday in the Algarve or indeed Europe.
The beaches of Vilamoura are beautiful, with soft golden sands and crystal-clear ocean that are safe for families, while the motorised water sports (jet skis, banana boats and parasailing) will entertain “children” of all ages. The central Algarve is ideal for teenagers and older children, who will adore Zoomarine or the waterparks of Aquashow and Slide and Splash.
. For those tourists wishing a more cultural holiday could visit the historic city of Faro or the market town of Loule, both of which can be reached independently via the inexpensive bus network.
In summary, you won’t be short of things to do during your holiday to Vilamoura.
Vilamoura is suited for visitors who are looking for a polished and refined holiday destination, with a preference to quality over cost. The resort is perfectly suited for visitors who wish to spend relaxed days on the beach and even longer nights in the waterside restaurants and bars.
Vilamoura does not (or want to) attract large groups who are on stag/hen holidays or purely after a drink fuelled holiday; for this sort of trip head to Albufeira. Certain visitors may find Vilamoura devoid of Portuguese charm and character, this is a purpose-built resort town that focuses on outstanding tourist facilities and services.
Vilamoura is great destination for young children and families as there are many excellent family hotels, while in the town children will be welcomed in all restaurants, shops and cafes. Having children also, we would recommend Vilamoura and the central Algarve for a family holiday based upon:
• English is widely spoken by all who work within the tourist industry, and language will never be an issue.
• The beaches are safe, with clean and calm sea waters, and are supervised in the summer.
• The Portuguese are a very family focused nation and children will be welcomed in all restaurants.
• Supermarkets stock all common items, and pharmacies are widely available all minor ailments.
• There is only a short transfer from Faro airport to Vilamoura.
Vilamoura has long, hot summers, pleasant spring/autumns and winters that are mild but unpredictable, with an equal number of bright days as wet days. The height of the tourist season is from July through to August and this is when the beaches are packed, and hotels are sold out. June and September tend to be popular months with couples, being outside of the school holidays and without the hordes of children, but there is still fantastic weather and a buzz about the town.
The weather of Vilamoura is suitable for spending time on the beach from mid-May until mid-October and the two ends of the season provide excellent value, with last minute deals and cheaper flights.
The Algarve, and especially Vilamoura is experiencing an unparalleled resurgence with new businesses opening, massive investment and a re-discovered confidence not seen since the financial crash of 2007. Vilamoura is expecting a spectacular 2019 season, based on the sell-out 2018 summer, with thousands of new tourists discovering this outstanding holiday destination.
This does mean that to secure the best prices, accommodation and flights must be booked far in advance. Our advice is, if you are seriously considering a holiday to Vilamoura book your accommodation now, as the best places will sell out.Get the full listing »
