Location features

Local markets and shopping

Aside from the opportunity to browse the shops in Praia D'Oura itself, there is a local market every Tuesday between Praia D'oura and the old town of Albufeira. The older part of Albufeira is ideal to get a taste of the past with narrow streets, handicraft shops and traditional Algarvean colours. There are shopping streets and a lively atmosphere particularly in the large square with live music featuring at times.

Bars and restaurants

The famous Strip is perfect for anyone wanting lots to do and a lively atmosphere! It has everything you need, with all manner of cafes, bars, restaurants and clubs to choose from. During the day you can enjoy a spot of lunch at any one of the numerous cafes and restaurants. At night, Praia D'Oura really comes to life, with many of the bars and clubs offering a great atmosphere. They are open until the early hours in high season and a varied choice of live music is played. More restaurants and bars can be found in the smaller roads leading away from the strip, for a quieter evening meal.

Albufeira centre lies a little over 1 mile to the west, nowadays a thriving tourist area, but the Moorish history can still be seen along its narrow cobbled streets. There is a vast selection of restaurants to choose from to cater for a range of tastes and pockets.


Praia D'Oura derives its name from the beautiful golden sandy beach at the bottom of the hill. It's well worth a visit. In nearby Albufeira there is a beautiful and expansive sandy beach, flanked by dramatic cliffs and rock formations. To Albufeira's far side are a string of picturesque cove beaches, such as those at Coelho, Castelo and Gale. A little further afield, 15 minutes' drive on either side of Albufeira, are the sandy stretches of Praia Grande to the west and Falesia to the east.

Family fun

For families, a choice of water-slide parks and the Zoomarine aquarium with a dolphin show are within a short drive.

Places of interest

Chic Vilamoura, with its international marina, casino, shops and restaurants is well worth a visit for a day or evening out.


The 9-hole Balaia golf course and 9-hole Sheraton Pine Cliffs golf course at Olhos D'Agua are nearby. Alternatively, there are 6 full, championship courses at Vilamoura to choose from, around 25 minutes' drive.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.
