At the heart of Vilamoura is the Marina, which has a capacity for over 800 boats. It’s surrounded by luxury hotels and homes as well as a large casino and many restaurants and bars. Boat charters are available for cruising and game fishing. There are facilities for jet skiing, parasailing, as well as other water activities. Nearby are also a number of sports clubs, world-class golf courses, and night clubs.
Tourism around the Marina is very strong and vibrant. Vilamoura plays host to an extensive variety of events throughout the year that bring much life to the area. Party-goers and revelers can enjoy live shows on most Tuesdays, Thursdays and weekends.
For avid historians, there’s also a preserved archaeological site and museum providing insight to the area’s past as a Roman fishing town.
