Vilamoura Holidays Guide
As one of the closest holiday resorts in the Algarve to Faro airport, Vilamoura is popular with those who like to get by the pool as quickly as possible. A holiday in Vilamoura is especially good for shorter breaks when you really want to minimise travel time to and from the airport.
Getting to, from and around Vilamoura
Vilamoura is a 30 minute drive from Faro airport, (about €30 each way in a taxi) making it one of the more convenient resorts in the Algarve. Coach transfers may take a little longer due to the extra stops en-route.
Taking the bus is an option, however you'll need to take a bus into Faro town and change at the bus station, before heading on to Vilamoura. The cost is just a few Euros.
Things to do in Vilamoura
Many come to Vilamoura for the pool and sunshine, but there's plenty to do around here if you need to break up your holiday with a few activities. A trip to the beach should be on your list as there's plenty of space and soft sand to play in.
The marina is also a great place to spend some time, looking at the boats, enjoying a few drinks and a bite to eat, as well as seeing what boat trips are on offer. There's everything from dolphin watching to parasailing so you’ve got plenty of choice. And if you're a keen golfer, there are several courses to choose from.
Where to stay in Vilamoura
Many self contained resorts sit further back from the seafront in Vilamoura. All types of accommodation are available here, ranging from budget friendly options like the Zarco Apartments, up to the more luxury Anantara Vilamoura Resort with its stunning views across the golf course and out to sea.
Down by the marina, and steps from the beach is the Tivoli Marina Hotel and the Hotel Vila Gale Ampalius, which offer the best of both worlds, and easy access to local restaurants and bars.
