Portimao

Trip Planner Europe  /  Portugal  /  Algarve  /  Faro District  /  Portimao
Beaches Sightseeing Nightlife
Originally a small fishing village, Portimão today serves as one of the most populated towns in the Algarve and also a favorite spot for sailing. Sailors of all levels come to the area for its calm waters and great weather; in fact, many sailing competitions take place here. Families who vacation in Portimão often come for the town's pirate ship cruise. The area's Alvor boardwalk, shops, and fresh seafood restaurants make Portimão a prime spot for a beach vacation along Portugal's southern coast.

Where to stay in Portimao

As one of the Algarve's most populous urban centers, Portimao offers plenty of choices for accommodations. Check into one of the upscale hotels along the beach south of the city center for easy access by foot to the surf and sand. Since these lodgings usually are equipped with pools, spas, and amenities, they can be on the pricey side. For something a little more affordable and farther away from the beachside bustle, try one of the smaller, mid-range hotels or locally run guesthouses available in the city center, particularly those in the more residential neighborhoods south of the train station along the Arade River.
