Praia da Rocha

Two Brothers

A bustling beach resort in Algarve's Portimão, Praia da Rocha is home to both high-rise hotels and 19th-century mansions. While the area is best known for its sandy shoreline and 16th-century fortress, the town itself boasts a number of restaurants, bars, and clubs for visitors to enjoy. Take a walk along the marina, try your luck at the casino, or go for a swim in the Atlantic Ocean. Praia da Rocha became a popular vacation destination among wealthy Europeans in the 1800s. Though it has been built up significantly since that time to accommodate more tourists, the town is still an attractive slice of Portugal's coastal beauty. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Praia da Rocha and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Praia da Rocha

Make the most of Praia da Rocha's array of outdoor activities by staying at a luxury hotel right along the shore. Though on the pricier side, these upscale hotels and chains provide a wealth of amenities, from restaurants and bars to private spas and outdoor pools, all within easy walking distance of the sand and surf. You can stay on a budget by considering a guesthouse or mid-range hotel in the nearby town of Portimao. Alternatively, rent out a private villa or apartment, often offered by locals, to get a beachfront setting outside the hustle and bustle of a large hotel.
