Apartment overview - owner's description
This comfortable one bedroom apartment is ideally located at the quieter end of the main Avenue overlooking Praia da Rocha beach.
If you are looking for a beach holiday then this is the perfect spot
This comfortable one bedroom apartment is ideally located at the quieter end of the main Avenue overlooking Praia da Rocha beach. It has a private covered garage space and WiFi connection included.
If you are looking for a beach holiday then this is the perfect spot, or if you are the exploring type then the apartment is only a short drive away from all the main attractions and points of interest. A very good local bus service runs from Praia da Rocha into the main fishing town and shopping centre at Portimão. There are ample bars, restaurants and nightspots within walking distance
There are lots of things to do in Praia da Rocha for the whole family to enjoy! The lovely Praia da Rocha beach has plenty of room for everyone, even in the height of summer, and there are places to eat and other facilities along its length so you can stay on the beach all day! There are all types of water sports on offer and boat trips to the caves, fishing trips and dolphin watching. At night the bars, nightclubs and restaurants liven up the Avenida Tomás Cabreira that runs along the top of the beach and there is also the Casino for a nightly show, dinner and dancing as well as the gaming rooms
The beach itself is vast, even in the middle of summer there is always plenty of space. The avenue, Tomás Cabreira, which runs along the top of the beach, is full of restaurants, cafes, and shops and is particularly lively at night with a variety of bars, and clubs to choose from. At the end of the avenue is the Fortress of Santa Catarina de Ribamar, which was part of Portimão's defences against corsairs and pirates. It was built in the 17th and 18th centuries and gives a wonderful view of the beach and the cliffs on one side and the marina on the other.
Praia da Rocha is ideal for anyone who wants to be close to a fantastic beach, have plenty of places to wine and dine or party until late. There is also a casino along the avenue that hosts a show every night, with dinner and dancing if you like, apart from the oportunity to have a flutter on the tables! You really wouldn't need to leave the resort, so no worries about hiring a car if you don't want to. If you want to wander around the main shopping centre then Portimão is only a short walk or bus ride away.
There are all sorts of water sports available on Praia da Rocha, and a variety of boat trips are available from Portimão river front (along from the marina at the eastern end of the beach). A lot of events go on throughout the year - fantastic fireworks and live music to celebrate New Year, powerboat racing or jet-skiing on the river, and lots of beach sports and events during the summer.
If you want to travel a little further afield then there are lots of things to do within easy reach of Praia da Rocha. The water park, Slide and Splash, is in Lagoa - just a short distance away and Zoomarine near Albufeira isn't far either. It has outdoor pools (so don't forget your swimming gear) as well as the dolphins, sealions and birds of prey shows. We musn't forget golf - one of the Algarve's big attractions - there are several excellent courses within very easy reach of Praia da Rocha, including the championship course of Penina and newer courses near Silves (one designed by Nick Faldo and the other by Christy O'Connor jnr)
To get a taste of inland Algarve then pay a visit to Silves - an historic town with a large, well preserved, Moorish castle. It is situated on the banks of the Arade river, so one way of getting there is by boat from the river front at Portimão. The trip normally gives you about an hour (because of the tides) to have a look around before the return journey. It is very picturesque and the castle is the largest in the Algarve - well worth seeing as it's really quite spectacular.
If you are a serious shopper, then take a trip to Algarve Shopping Mall near Guia - you can always leave the menfolk on one of the couches in the sunshine while you browse the shops! There is also a food hall with a variety of restaurants and 'fast food' outlets to keep them occupied!
