Get away from it all in one of the quieter parts of the Algarve that retains its rugged Atlantic charm. The Pestana Alvor Praia is a super modern and chic 5-star resort, perched above a beautiful, secluded beach. It looks out over the beautiful and naturally sculpted rock faces and turquoise waters below. The enclosed beach is ideal for an ocean swim, strolling or relaxing on the sand.

The rooms here are beautifully furnished and most overlook the sea. All of them have their own private balcony. Take a stroll through the buildings and grounds here and you’ll discover the gorgeous pool, surrounded by luxury sun loungers and palm trees, an infinity pool-like effect being achieved by its height above and proximity to the ocean beyond. Relax in the shade with a cool drink as you gaze out over the gardens and beach below, get an invigorating massage or work up a sweat on the treadmill. The beach is accessible via lift, making it easy to reach and enjoy.

For active types, the area offers activities such as bicycle rental, diving, fishing and an onsite tennis court. The south of Portugal is also well known as a golfing hotspot and for a few challenging rounds you can’t do better than the local Pestana Pinta and Gramacho Golf Algarve courses. The lovely hotel staff will be more than happy to help with information on Green fees and the best times to play.

The local fishing village of Alvor is just 1km away from the hotel where you can experience the Moorish charm, alongside great little restaurants, shops and bars. The nearby town of Portimao makes for a great day of browsing local and international stores as well as walks down by the harbour. Be sure to visit the rugged old Castelo de Sao João de Arade.
