Great for beaches too!

Vale do Lobo Golf

It is impossible to think of Vale do Lobo without immediately also thinking of golf!  It is a year-round sport, although it is mainly played from autumn to spring.  

There are more than 30 courses, many designed by the most famous names in the sport.  The hotels we feature will be delighted to book tee off times for you and many have preferential green fees.  

Other sporting activities

Continuing the sporting theme, there is a superb tennis academy at Vale do Lobo amongst others on this coast.

Watersports enthusiasts will find that most beaches have equipment for hire.  Horse riding enthusiasts will find several reliable schools including one at Quinta do Lobo near to Vale do Lobo.


Shopping for bright colourful ceramics, beautiful intricate embroidery, leather goods, knitwear and, of course, some delicious Portuguese wines is enjoyable, but remember sometimes you can haggle a little over the price.


Holidays in Vale do Lobo are also well spent if all you want is time to read, sit in the sun and be with your partner or your family.

For eating out in the evening, we have found that more “local” restaurants often provide a better meal and usually at a better price too!
