The Western Algarve is renowned for it's beautiful clean beaches and fine golf courses; however, there is something for everyone and most of the attractions are less than an hours' drive away.

If you're on a family holiday then there is plenty to entertain the children with, for example, water parks, zoomarine, themed crazy golf parks, sports centers (football, tennis etc.) as well as the lovely safe beaches with all the water sports like sailing, body boarding, water skiing, windsufing, banana rides etc. Your children will never have a dull moment!

Why not go sight seeing and visit the historical town of Lagos, take a trip on a sailing boat along the coast, visit the Monchique mountains, explore the West coast or visit the moorish castle at Silves.

Whether you just want to laze by the pool with an ice cold drink or explore the Algarve and all that it has to offer, there is something for everyone here!
