Things to do nearby
One of the main attractions of the Alvaflor Vilamoura is its proximity to some of the finest golf courses in the Algarve and it is indeed an excellent choice for a golfing break. The Pinhal course is practically on your doorstep and the Old Course, Vila Sol, Laguna and Victoria courses are just a few minutes’ away. Hotel staff will be happy to assist you in organising a golfing excursion to any of the courses in the area. When you are not on the green, a visit to one or two of the excellent Algarve beaches is a must and Vilamoura offers two beaches within the resort itself. Falesia is a long stretch of fine, white sand ideal for swimming and the Marina Beach is also a popular destination for holidaymakers. Both beaches offer a wide range of water sports as well as bars and cafes from which to purchase drinks and snacks.
Beyond Vilamoura there are many great excursions available to explore the Algarve more extensively. Although many visitors simply pass through on the way to or from the airport, Faro is a good choice for a day trip and provides an interesting glimpse into the region’s colourful history.

For an insight into some of the more isolated Algarve villages, a boat trip from the marina is a great way to see the area from a different perspective and visit a number of smaller villages along the coast.
