There are fantastic Golfing opportunities in the area with more than 30 golf courses within a 1 hour drive, many of them championship standard.  Most of the golf courses are relatively new and therefore have excellent facilities, and all are set in natural conservation areas of great beauty. 


With 21 golf complexes and 31 golf courses, the south coast of the Algarve is Europe's premier winter golfing destination!

The temperate climate of the Algarve throughout the year means golf can be played almost every day of the year! 

The Algarve was named 'Best Golfing Destination in the World' by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators
