Best things to do in Quinta Do Lago, Portugal

      The resort's three 18-hole golf courses will keep you busy. However, when you are ready to step out beyond the resort, the local area is packed with exciting things to do and see. Here's our round up of the best things to do in Quinta Do Lago.

Best things to do in Quinta Do Lago:

Best watersports:

     Beyond the white sands of Quinta Do Lago Beach, you'll want to venture further afield to explore the phenomenal coastline of the Algarve. The Algarve has many beaches, all well-maintained with lots of watersports on offer at most.

     Whether you want to enjoy: flyboarding, jet skiing, scuba diving, kayaking, inflatables, paragliding or surfing, you'll find all manner of watersports available from the beaches and harbours.

     If you want to relax, take a boat trip along the coast to see some of the area's awesome natural landmarks at their best.

Best beaches:

     There are a wide variety of beaches to discover along the coast. Here's our pick of some of the Algarve's most striking beaches.

     Praia do Barrill offers the opportunity to relax amongst the beauty of the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa. Its endless miles of soft, white sand and uninterrupted sea views create an idyllic, tranquil setting.

     Praia de Dona Ana is a magnificent cove, surrounded by huge, jagged cliffs and rock formations. Its colourful, sublime vista is often featured in magazines and advertorials for the Algarve. It is a lengthy climb, up wooden steps, to reach the beach but once you get there, the views are well worth the extra effort.

     Praia de Falesia is the longest beach in the Algarve. Its beautiful, sandy shores are bordered by pine trees and cliffs, creating a magnificent beach idyll. The beach is well looked after and equipped with sun beds, bars and restaurants nearby.

     In stark contrast, Praia da Rocha is one of the biggest and trendiest beaches in the area. Its huge shores are always busy and there are lots of beach clubs, beach sports facilities, watersports and live events to enjoy.

Best local attractions:

      One of the most popular family attractions in the area is Slide and Splash. This award-winning waterpark has the perfect blend of thrilling rides for both children and adults, as well as restaurants, animal shows and relaxing pools.

     There are many other waterparks in the area but Slide and Splash is said to be the best.

     If you want to explore the Ria Formosa Natural Park in more depth than is possible from the resort, take one of the trails designed for hiking, cycling, kayaking or boat tours to explore the 60km of wetlands, islands, marshes and lagoons up close. Much of the wildlife here, are rare species that you won't find anywhere else.

     Ponta da Piedade is another natural phenomena that can be explored from the coast or after an energetic hike, high into the cliffs. From its rock formations, to its caves and grottoes, there is lots to explore. It is always amusing to point out all the different rock formations, which each have their own name.

     The old town of Faro is close to Quinta Do Lago with plenty to uncover, however you will find the historical Moorish ruins in Silves and Loule are also worth a visit. Other interesting local towns nearby include the fishing port of Olhao and Lagos Old Town.

Best restaurants:

     Outside of the resort, you'll find the Algarve is filled with great restaurants serving up fresh seafood and tasty Mediterranean dishes. When you want something different, there is also a good range of cuisines from other cultures, such as fast food, Indian and French.

     Some of the best restaurants in the area include: Real Portuguese Cuisine, Pigs and Cows, Windmill, Maria do Mar, Al Quimia, Cafe Ingles, Restaurant Vivendo and Le Cro Portugal.

     When you want something different, burgers at Fabios Roadstop, tapas at Tapas Jukebox or a curry at Sunita's Castle all come highly recommended.

Best nightlife

      The Algarve has a lively nightlife with lots of chilled beachside bars, and stylish clubs. Make a beeline to the Beach Bar, the Deck, KISS, BLISS or On the Rocks for the best places to party into the early hours.

Our Story

In 2005, John Paul Donnelly, began his luxury villa journey. He spent three years building resorts and holiday apartments in Alanya, Turkey, along with his brother, Joe. The concept was to create the most luxurious villas on the Turkish coastline and provide clients, along with their family and friends, the opportunity to enjoy exclusive holidays together.

By 2008, after the successful development of 3 resorts, JP had well and truly fallen into the world of villa rentals. With a portfolio of 6 villas and a desire to explore new places, he decided it was time to take the villa rental business outside of Turkey. He wanted to give his clients access to beautiful holiday rentals in destinations across the globe.

The expanding villa rental company was rebranded in 2011 to 5 Star Villa Holidays, and today 5 Star Villa Holidays offers over 10,000 luxury villas around the world.

JP and his partner, Helena are currently travelling the globe, devoted to hand selecting the best villas and property management companies, and giving them their stamp of approval! 5 Star Villa Holidays' ambition goes beyond being an ordinary holiday rental company. It is a marketplace for luxurious and exclusive villas around the world.
