Portimão is located in the heart of the Algarve and, after Faro, the second biggest city, it’s a vibrant city with lots of famous international activities. Praia da Rocha is the beach municipality. Portimao has multiple beautiful big and small beaches, the three best known are Praia da Rocha, Praia de Alvor and Praia da Vau.
All through the year, lots of different activities are organised near and on the beach, for instance sports but also many pop-jazz and classic concerts. The cultural heritage is also magnificent, for instance the church “Nuestra Senora de la Conception” is well worth a visit, as well as a variety of museums.
Since the spring of 2011 Portimao has the biggest and most beautiful semi-covered-shopping mall of the Algarve, named “Aqua” with opening hours till 23.00h in the evening.
Portimao is located alongside the “Rio Arade”, a true paradise for “nature lovers” with many birds and trees and of course the extensive river bedding where one can even fern through. There are also many interesting routes for strollers.
We hope to welcome you soon in Riomar, where you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
