Quinta do Lago area

The Quinta do Lago area is a perfect choice for those wishing to stay very close to the renowned and premium resorts of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, with easy access to the popular amenities available at those resorts including a vast array of restaurants, bars, shops, world-class sporting facilities and spas plus the beautiful sandy beaches and the Ria Formosa Natural Park.

If you are golfer or nature lover, this is a great place to visit given the choice of nearby golf courses and incredible wildlife to see at Ria Formosa Natural Park coastal lagoon which covers over 18,000 hectares. Aside from rare birds which draws ornithologists from all over the world, the endangered sea horse and Portuguese water dog also live here. The best way to explore Ria Formosa is either on foot using one of its many nature trails or if you are more adventurous rent a kayak and admire this beautiful area from the water.
