You have decided that you want a little more from your stag or hen weekend and you have chosen Vilamoura as your holiday destination. Vilamoira is the Algarve's playground for the rich and famous, boasting Europes largest sports marina, top nightclubs, beaches, bars, restaurants, waterparks, strip clubs and golf courses.
Vilamoura Marina is where the action happens, with two levels of bars, shops, restaurants and clubs access to the marina is a top priority, so you would want to consider this when you chose your accommodation. If your not sure dont worry we have a full list of places we recommend in Vilamoura, so hold tight, we got you covered.
Vilamoura itself is actaully part of a much larger town that many have never heard of called Quarteira, it shares its postcode and it is basically a suburb located to the west of the main town, there is a blurry line where Quarteira ends and Vilamoura begins, however they are worlds apart.
Vilamoura was developed in the early 1970 but we are not going to bore you with all the details, if your that way inclined you can read all about it here in the Vilamoura Wiki.
Right so back to the important stuff of the things you can do. We are going to start off with a rundown of the top attractions, bars and restaurants then finish with the accommodation you can chose from.
Probably the single most popular attraction in the Vilamoura area, Aquashow waterpark. The park includes Europe's highest waterslide, the Free Fall, watercoaster (rollercoaster), wave pools, aqualandia pool, river slide, the twin space shuttle slides, River slide, Top Swing, Shark Slide, Speed Race, and the insane White Fall, plus bars, restaurants, sunbeads, a huge Jacuzzi, aquashow is number one on our waterpark list for the whole of Portugal not just Vilamoura, coaches leave daily from various hotels around Vilamoura Marina (its essential to book in advance) Tickets are aproximatley £40 including transport and can ge subject to Portugal Rocks discounts depending on the group size.
To be on the Algarve where we meet the Atlantic Ocean it would seem appropriate that we would include all the various water sports, boat trips and charters available from Vialmoura's marina.Whether your looking for a catamaran, speedboat, jet boat, sailing yacht, luxury cruiser, jet ski, surf board, scuba diving or paddle board, we have it covered directly from the marina.We work with all the best companies based there and many are subject to exclusive Portugal Rocks discounts. Amongst the popular trips are the caves and coastline tour that showcases the Algarves famous beaches and rocks as well as the full day BBQ cruise.
The one major boat trip that needs its own listing is the Portugal Rocks Vilamoura Boat Party, departing every Saturday afternoon, live DJ, free drinks, games, and even return transport to Albufeira if you need it.
If you chose to go for the self contained villa option you will not be disappointed but its doubtful you will be close to the bars, clubs and nightlife, the residential area of Vilamoura surrounds the marina but many of the villas are a taxi ride away and for first time visitors the warren of roads where they are found can be difficult to find especially after a night out. But on the positive they are huge, luxurious and living like a millionaire for a few days is nothing to be sniffed at, many of our clients want to be independent, through their own pool parties, drink, eat and be merry in the privacy of their own home, we can send chefs with food, strippers, butlers in the buff, cocktail bar-men (and women) plus we can arrange transfers to and from the door so you dont really need to lift a finger
