This famous region in Portugal has to be one of the top golfing holiday destinations in Europe not least because of its first class golf courses, hotel package accommodation and sunny climate which attract those seeking short golf breaks or more extended stays. The stunning coastal scenery with a blend of sandstone cliffs and Atlantic beaches make the Southern coastline of Portugal a beautiful backdrop for relaxing golf holidays in Algarve.
If you are looking to stay in the Pestana Vila Sol or Dom Pedro a Vilamoura golfing break equates to visiting the golfing capital of this region which plays host to a fantastic selection of courses.
The main area of Vilamoura is the marina where many of the Algarve’s most famous golf hotels are located such as:
The marina-front has many restaurants and bars, a Casino and also four nightclubs as well. Look out for local events organised in the summer months.
The Central Algarve region stretches from Faro Airport across to Albufeira in the West. There are numerous resorts and hotels which populate this main golfing area. There are also several excellent courses in the Algarve central area to choose from, hence, why many want Algarve golf holidays in this area, these include:
Located just along the coast from Quinta do Lago south and some will also say the capital of opulence, it’s not quite Quinta do lobo, but Vale do Lobo is also a popular resort area with some fantastic beaches and numerous restaurants. The resort has many multi-million pound residences, as well as plenty of traditional Algarve style villas and apartments and of course the famous Dona Filipa Hotel.
Slightly further West along the coast and a top-rated resort for golfers from all walks of life. The town itself used to be famous for its New and Old areas, the new with its fashionable bars, restaurants and nightclubs and the Old with its quaint cafes, bars with Marina front views.

The west region stretches along the coastline from Albufeira in the East to Lagos in the West. This region has many fantastic beaches in Carvoeiro, Alvor, Praia da Rocha and Lagos.
The east region takes in the area immediately East of Faro and runs along the coast as far as the famous Guardiano River. The main town in the region is the quaint town of Tavira, visiting this town will take you back hundreds of years to when the moors roamed the land. The architecture here has not changed, and there is still clearly a Moorish influence. If you enjoy fresh fish, then you have come to the right region with some of the best examples of the daily catch on-sale in the heart of the town at the many bars and restaurants. The area also has one of the best summer attractions in Tavira island – just off the coast of Tavira. This island has fantastic beaches and grilled sardines to die for. Sold already?
