The city of Portimão has more than 50,000 permanent residents and is the largest town in the Algarve’s Barlavento (windward) side. It is the Algarve’s second largest city, after Faro. The city was discovered by national tourists and Praia da Rocha was one of the region’s original summer holiday destinations. This city was, for decades, a summer resort for wealthy families of Portimão, of the Algarve and Andalusia. English visitors came in the winter season.
The 5* Bela Vista Hotel located right on Praia da Rocha remains a symbol of the town’s “Belle Époque” architecture and decoration. The municipality is served by excellent accesses, including boat (marina which also receives cruise liners), bus (direct links to Spain, Lisbon and other large cities in the Algarve, as well as the Vai-vem which ensures coverage of the entire municipality on a regular basis), as well as a small aerodrome located in Alvor. It is 63km from Faro International Airport and 297km from Lisbon.
