Activities and things to do
Praia da Castelo
One of the finest cove beaches in the Algarve, Castelo is isolated and surrounded by breathtaking rock formations. The beach is only a short walk from the resort centre or easily accessed by car, with steps and a ramp onto the sand.<br><br>The water becomes deep quickly but lifeguards do man the beach in high season. There is a good cafe which overlooks the beach out to sea and sunbeds and parasols are available for hire.
Zoomarine is an exotic marine life theme park home to hundreds of fantastic and fascinating sea creatures. The park includes dolphins, sea lions, turtles, a shark, a museum and an alligator farm as well as a mini-zoo, exotic birds and tropical fish.

Some of the best shows in Europe are staged at Zoomarine such as sea lion, dolphin and eagle shows. It is advisable to arrive early and plan an itinerary for the day.

It is also possible to interact with dolphins but it is advisable to call at least 2 days in advance. Even though it is costable, it is very popular.

Entertainment at the theme park also includes fairground rides, swimming pools, shops and a cinema.

Zoomarine is situated at KM65 close to Albufeira on the main N125 road between Pera and Guia. The park is in a tranquil setting offset by gardens and lakes. Tel: 200 351 289 560 300.
Krazy World
Krazy World has a Crazy Golf course which features a whopping 36 holes. There is a petting farm where you can hold snakes, take pony rides, touch camels, kangaroos and parrots. Swimming pools provide the opportunity to cool off.

Krazy World is located near Algoz on the N264 which leaves the N269 ten miles east of Silves. Tel: 00 351 282 574 134.

Aqualand Waterslide Park
Formerly known as 'The Big One,' Aqualand has spectacular gardens and is probably the largest waterpark in the Algarve.

The names of the slides give you an idea of what to expect – Hydra, Raging Rapids, Banzai Boggan, Kamikaze, Surf Beach, Rainbow Park, Crazy Leap, Crazy Race &, Congo River! Users of the Kamikaze slide fall 26 metres vertically to the pool below in only four seconds!

Aqualand is located west of Alcantarilha on the main N125 road some ten kilometres outside Albufeira. Tel: 00 351 282 320 230.
Away from the heat and the crowds, the freshness of the Monchique hills is most tangible. This area of the Algarve is blessed with fertile rolling hills, shrouded in flowers and outcropped boulders, ideal for walking.

Amongst the whitewashed houses of this hill town stand three churches each housing impressive carvings and sculptures. Most notable is the porch of the Igreja Matriz with its twisted stone columns.

A breathtaking view of Monchique can be enjoyed from the ruins of the Nossa Senhora de Desterro Monastery. The monastery gardens are decorated with tiles showing birds and a magnolia tree that may be the biggest in Europe. Arbutus trees, from which derives a strong brandy, are also found in this area.

From Silves proceed west on N124 for 6 ½ miles and then continue north west on N266 for 13 miles to Caldas de Monchique. Continue past Caldas de Monchique for 3¼ miles to Monchique.

An outstanding and beautiful villa.

Customer Rating


Paul Bennett, 05-Sep-2015

We wanted somewhere with a little 'wow' factor for our holiday and Nenufa definitely delivers. Every room was beyond our expectations but the kitchen, the lounge and the double bedroom with en suite were particularly spectacular. Nevertheless it was the pool and the outside eating area where we spent most of our time. It's the perfect holiday retreat and, if you have a car, perfectly located for a trip to the beach and only a very short drive to Albufeira, Zoomarine, the various water parks and of course the many restaurants and supermarkets near by. Every one of our group of seven enjoyed the stay and would definitely return to Nenufa should we be in the Algarve again. Thank you for a fantastic holiday!
