You need not go far to find what you need, beaches, water and other sports, golf, shopping, lakes, horse riding and nature trails. This really is a complete resort area and is definitely a top of the range choice for your Algarve luxury holidays.

What to do

As Quinta do Lago is on the edge of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve this is an ideal location for walking or birdwatching and there is rare fauna here too. Activities include horse riding, tennis, clay pigeon shooting, deep water fishing and practically every kind of water sport – watersports are available at the beach or on the saltwater lakes.

The beach is extensive, over 2 miles of golden sand with magnificent sand dunes and can be reached by crossing a long wooden walkway over the Ria Formosa. You will find restaurants, cafes and sun bed (at a charge) here, plus in season there are lifeguards on duty.


Quinta do Lago has 3 championship golf courses, the South, the North and Laranjal course. All designed to complement the natural surroundings and each with its own unique challenges.

Wide lakes, undulating fairways and strategic bunkers characterise the terrain and surrounded by pine trees and some of the fairways offer views of the Ria Formosa National Park on one side and the Atlantic coastline on the other.

All three courses feature excellent practice facilities, a golf academy, practice greens and bunkers, buggies, pro-shops and clubhouses with outdoor dining terraces

Shopping and cafes

There is a shopping centre “Bugavilia” at the entrance to Quinta do Lago which has a supermarket, bank and other shops plus restaurants and cafes.  The other shopping options can be found at “Quinta Shopping” and these include a selection of designer boutiques and jewellery shops and more cafes and restaurants.
