In Silves, you can visit the castle. In Sagres, there is Cabo de São Vicente. If you prefer to go inland, why not pay a visit to Fóia, in Monchique, the highest mountain in Algarve. Lagos is also worth visiting, with a lot of very interesting places - such as museums.
In Loulé you can find a beautiful market, with people selling local fruits and vegetables, fresh fish and seafood, among other items. In Faro, you can lose yourself in the labyrinthic streets while discovering hidden monuments.
In Tavira, you can visit the Roman bridge and its castle. If you go up to Alcoutim you can visit the beautiful river beach with its calm waters.

Algarve golf courses
If you are a golf enthusiast, then you will find that the Algarve has some of the best golf courses in Europe.
The Algarve was also repeatedly considered to be the best-golfing destination in the world by magazines devoted to the sport and by international associations of specialist tour operators.
With an ideal climate that lets you play throughout the year and a wide variety of four dozen courses, the region is a golfers’ paradise.
Most courses are located in protected areas, with stunning views. They are internationally recognised for the quality of their facilities, and they have been designed by prestigious players and legendary champions such as Sir Henry Cotton, Rocky Roquemore, Arnold Palmer and Ronald Fream.
The courses are spread from one extreme of the region to the other. By the beach or further inland, flat or hilly, the choices are varied, but any of them can offer you the chance of birdies and eagles, and maybe even a hole in one.
However, there are a few safety measures golf courses are adopting:
● You must maintain 2 meters from other players, including at the teeing area and the green.
● You mustn’t physically greet other players before or during the game.
● You mustn’t remove or touch the flagstick.
● You mustn’t exchange scorecards with other players.
Due to its amazing facilities and its privileged location, Quinta do Lago Country Club is perfect for you and your family.
The Quinta do Lago region is also known for being one of the most secure and stunning places in Portugal. Therefore, we don’t want you to miss the opportunity to enjoy your holidays in this little piece of heaven.
