Family fun in the Algarve

If you’re looking for expansive sandy beaches, a plethora of water sports and convivial restaurants serving up local seafood, this popular coastal town on the Algarve’s south coast is for you. Monte Gordo holidays are perfect for families. Hanging out at the town’s pristine Blue Flag beach with its low tide and calm waters is a fantastic way to spend the day.

It’s vast enough that you’re sure to locate a suitable spot to relax with ease, have room to play beach-based games or venture into the water to go canoeing or stand-up paddle boarding. The town itself is filled with decent shops, cafés, restaurants and bars, as is the beachfront.

On holidays to Monte Gordo be sure to take a stroll along the palm-tree-lined promenade and the boardwalk in the afternoon, so that you can grab a seat at one the seafront bars at sunset.

Your Monte Gordo questions, answered

Monte Gordo lies on the south coast of Portugal in the sunny Algarve. It’s located 60 kilometres east of Faro and is only 4 kilometres from the Spanish border.

With its hot summers – you can expect up to 12 hours of sunshine a day – and mild winters, Monte Gordo is an attractive destination to visit all year round.

Originally a fishing town, Monte Gordo is still a great spot for fresh fish and seafood – you may even see boats bringing in their daily catch.

Best things to do in Monte Gordo

Cycle the promenade

Monte Gordo is more or less flat, so hiring bikes can be a really interesting and exhilarating way of exploring the town and the surrounding area.

See some nature

Discover the scenic Mata Nacional das Dunas de Vila Real de Santo António – a verdant pine forest that’s the largest in the Algarve and is ideal for hiking and cycling.

Enjoy the beach

Sink your toes into the fine golden sands at Praia de Monte Gordo and you’ll find it hard to leave. There are sunloungers and umbrellas available to hire, and restaurants and bars close by.
