Interesting facts about Vilamoura!
Vilamoura is one of the prime travel destinations in Portugal. Situated along the beaches of central Algarve, Vilamoura was built in the 1980s as a top golfing center. Today, the city features five sprawling golf courses and a luxurious marina complex.
Just a short drive away, visitors can venture to other sought-after Portugal municipalities like Faro and Loule, which features the famous market. For sunbathers, Praia da Falésia, a 5km stretch of golden sandy coastline, is one of the reasons Vilamoura is such a remarkable location.
After a relaxed day at one of the many beach destinations, head to the nearby Vilamoura Marina for your pick of bars, restaurants, and leisure hotels. The marina has over 40+ yachts and plenty of rental options for those that like to be out on the water.
Previously a Roman fishing town, Roman ruins dot the marina, allowing tourists a chance to learn about the unique history that birthed the city. Once you've learned some local history, explore the caves along the coastline for a truly scenic adventure.

Made our holiday
Initially I was worried about landing with my family and the car not turning up, then the flight was delayed by over an hour and that added more worry. Whilst i was still waiting to board I received a text message from the taxi company saying that the flight was delayed and they were tracking it. When I landed I received a text message with the driver contact details, his arrival time and his photo!! When we came through he was standing there with our name on a smart looking tablet! He was great, he ran us around during our stay a few times and we had him again when it was time to leave. Michelle
Booked my transfer with ridetransferdirect.com and the process couldn’t have been easier, One thing that surprised me was that I could track the vehicle in real time from the SMS message they sent me when the car was dispatched, impressive! Steve.
