Thus, it is not surprising that this country is considered a top destination by golfers. There are several golf courses in sumptuous settings: close to a lovely beach, with breathtaking views or close to the residential area where the villa you may be renting is located. Golf courses such as the Monte Rei Golf & Country Club, the Oceanico O'Connor Jnr Course and the Clube Golf Oceânico Faldo remain favourites of  the aficionados of the discipline.

The South-West coast of the Algarve also attracts surfers from all over the world. This wilderness, which is located a short distance from the villages of Lagos and Sagres, facing the Atlantic, is probably the most popular surf destination in Europe, with quality spots such as Praia do Amado, Vale Figueiras and Carrapateira.
