Activities and things to do
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.

As if paying tribute to a turbulent history in the middle ages, the blood red walls of mighty Silves Castle overlook the surrounding countryside. The largest military monument to the Islamic period in Portugal, it remembers a different past in the Iberian Peninsula.

The Old Cathedral (which features gargoyles from over 500 years ago) city walls and medieval bridge emphasise Silves as an historical town. An historical town would be incomplete without a museum which in this city contains an 11th century well!

Visitors may wish to take a trip through time by sailing down the Arade River to the sea, passing vestiges of Roman and Viking presence.
Aquashow Waterslide Park
The park includes a massive wave pool, superb water slides and mini golf.

Also on site are a gift shop, changing and shower facilities, several restaurants, sunbeds and all you need to spend a really complete day of amusement.

Aquashow is situated on the N396 as you turn off the main N125 road for Quarteira. Tel: 00 351 289 389 396.

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.
Sagres The Fort
Known locally as Fortaleza de Sagres, the fort in its present form dates from 1793. Just inside the gate to the impressive building is a 141 foot wind rose for measuring the direction of the wind, excavated in the 18th century. As with many ruins, building has taken place on top of the original stonework throughout the centuries. In this case until as late as the 1950s in preparation for the 500th anniversary of Prince Henry’s death and beyond. For example you will find a very old church and lighthouse near a modern museum hall. The fort is open daily between May and September.
