Quarteira Overview


Coastal city: Adjoining and pretty much merging into the purpose-built resort of Vilamoura, Quarteria holidays offer all the delights of a pretty coastal city on the western side of the Algarve. Its attractions are numerous, including the many golfing courses located close to Quarteria holidays, as well as a gorgeous main beach and a fantastic theme park.

Close to sporting action: As already mentioned, Quarteira holidays are very close to Vilamoura holidays and all their sporting delights. That means you can take in all the sights and sounds of the city whilst also enjoying the water sports, golfing and horse riding of this local resort.

Activities in Quarteira


Aquashow Family Park: This vibrant theme park has sixteen watery attractions, meaning lots of fun for everyone on family holidays. Ride on the super fast water roller coaster, or the white fall slide for some high octane action. Or if you prefer things a little slower paced on your Quarteira holidays, you might prefer the lazy river or the wave pool. The park even offers educational experiences too, such as the Portuguese History Museum which has lifelike waxwork figures, or the many animal shows featuring parrots, reptiles and birds of prey.

The Old Course: As the name suggests, this golf course is the oldest of all those situated in Vilamoura, less than a kilometre from Quarteira holidays. Created in 1969, it has a similar layout to large British courses with a good degree of challenge. It has even attracted the attention of the professionals and has been used in a number of tournaments, including the Portuguese Open. The holes largely consist of long green fairways, huge overhanging trees and open sandy bunkers.

Pinhal Golf Course: Created in 1976 by the same designer as the Old Course, Frank Pennink, the Pinhal also has a rather tough difficulty level. This is particularly highlighted by the small size of the greens, making pitching pretty difficult! In an elevated position, the course also offers fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean to savour on your Quarteira holidays.

Beaches in Quarteira


Praia de Quarteira: Spreading across 3 kilometres, the extensive length of this beach proves a real draw to those on Quarteira holidays. Its central location close to the city also makes it incredibly convenient. The Calcadao promenade which follows the beach is pretty popular too, and boasts all manner of beachfront cafes and bars.

Praia do Forte Novo: An expansive beach, Praia do Forte Novo has a wide section of dazzlingly golden sand. It’s also encircled by burnt-orange coloured cliff faces which make the backdrop to sunbathing on Quarteira holidays even more inviting.

Praia do Almargem: This beautiful beach is just as much an attraction for nature enthusiasts as it is for sunbathers on Quarteira holidays. That’s because the sea here is surprisingly calm, whilst there’s also a peaceful shimmering lagoon here too. It attracts a variety of birdlife to its shores as well.

Restaurants in Quarteira


La Cabane Quarteira: This highly regarded restaurant focuses on what it knows best, namely classic Portuguese classics. Ingredients are sourced locally, meaning meals taste amazingly fresh. Try dishes on your Quarteira holidays such as sea bass, fresh crab and stone-cooked steak.

O Arco: The exterior and interior of this restaurant have a rather rustic look to it, with low wooden beams and simply presented tables. However, the food is anything but old-fashioned, as innovative ideas here include turbot with almonds, steak with mint and John Dory filets with banana.

Marufo 1: This restaurant is famed for its quality of the Portuguese classic piri piri chicken. Mafuo 1 offers one of the best examples of this zesty, spicy delicacy (made with chilli and lime) you’ll come across on your Quarteira holidays.

Nightlife in Quarteira


Marina bars: For great nightlife, it’s best to head to Vilamoura, less than a kilometre away from Quarteira holidays. The Irish Bar has a warm atmosphere and live music most nights too. Whilst Baz & Minnie’s Bar will also offer a friendly welcome – they offer a range of hot food as well as branded beers. For theme bars, you can’t beat Cadillac Bar as the furniture inside is largely made up of car parts from the 50s. And that’s not forgetting the Casino, which features glitzy evening entertainment as well as plenty of gambling rooms.

Shopping in Quarteira


Shopping variety: Near the marina, you’ll come across a clean, modern mall which features a wide range of international brands. There’s also a lively market held in Quarteira every Wednesday offering a range of handicrafts to bring back home after holidays here. And if you want even more choice, you could always head 10km to the pretty mountain village of Loule, as there’s a vibrant market held there every Saturday. Plus Albufeira is less than 15km to the west of Quarteira holidays, and it has two main commercial streets and a huge shopping centre with over 60 shops, a large food court and 6 cinema screens.
