Route
“Vilamoura marina is the main centre of activity in Vilamoura with a huge range of restaurants, bars and shops (including many designer shops). Luis Figo's 'Bar Sete' (bar seven) is also on the marina front. During the day, although it can get quite busy, it's really a very peaceful area to stroll around. It gets more lively at night, with everyone coming to eat and try out some of the bars, but is still a very relaxed area. Great for dinner, a walk, coffee or drink after dinner.”

Water Park
“The closest water park to the villa. It's a good park and, if you don't want to go further and decide to go there, surely you'll have a fun day with the kids... But, if you have transportation, we recommend one of the other 2 water parks in Algarve: Aquashow or Slide&Splash. :)”
