Leg 24 - The port of Vilamoura and town of Quarteira
Vilamoura is a resort in the Algarve region of southern Portugal. It’s known for its large marina, golf courses and casino, and for sandy Vilamoura Beach. Cerro da Vila archaeological museum has a ruined Roman villa with bathhouses and mosaics. Red cliffs line Falésia Beach, which stretches west to the fishing village Olhos de Água. Vilamoura merges with the town of Quarteira, to the southeast, with more beaches.
Marina reception area. Pretty posh place. It is like a mini Monaco. Vilamoura is a modern and sophisticated holiday destination that is situated on one of the finest beaches of the central Algarve. Vilamoura was constructed in the 1980s as an elite golfing center.
Traditional Portuguese cobble stone pathways along the long beach front. This is another large tourist town.
The Praia da Felesia is the largest in the central Algarve as the beach stretches for over 8km's of golden sands and ends with distinctive orange clay cliffs..
Beach day playing paddle ball.
The sculpture was made out of washers.
Found this little guy while biking along the top of the cliff side.
At the Vilamoura marina.
Roman ruins. Unfortunately the exhibit was closed both times we visited this port.
Now that is a big smile Michelle.
The pathways along the town's edge were very well manicured and had exercise stations all one the way. Heading out towards the 36 hole golf course.
Another great evening with Mark, Michelle & Erin. Chili Nachos, and bubbly. Enjoying every minute.
