Marine of Vilamoura!

Previous post about Algarve: the city of Portimão.

During my trip to Algarve I visited Vilamoura, which comprises on of the largest single tourist complexes in Europe and has about 2000 hectares of land. This is the place I know better in Algarve, because it is the region of Algarve where I usually stay since I was a little girl.

The marina of Vilamoura is surrounded by luxury hotels (with ratings from three to five stars) and holiday homes. There is a large casino and also many vibrant restaurants and bars. At the corner of the marina, people can charter boats or visit facilites for jet skiing and parascending. Also, there is a shooting range, a vast number of sports clubs, and also many night clubs.

As you can probably tell, tourism in Vilamoura is really well-developed and people from all over the world come to see its beauty and uniqueness.

The day I visited Vilamoura, while watching the sunset, I had dinner at a restaurant called “7 Figo Decklounge”, wich is owned by the former portuguese football player Luís Figo. It has a beautiful view over the marine and the boats. Then I walked around, ate a delicious ice cream, took pictures and went to some of the many stores in that place.

Here are some pictures!
