It is only 10 minutes to the nearest beaches and islands which are serviced by a regular ferry at the fishing village of Fuzeta, Pedra Del Rei and Barril Beach. Barril Beach has a quaint little train which takes you to miles of unspoilt beaches.
Quinta Do Licorne is ideally situated for golfers for the east and west Algarve courses, during the winter season.
Over 100 miles of beautiful beaches and coastlines stretch from east to west, and with over 3000 hours of sunshine it is little wonder that the Algarve is Portugal’s sunshine province and beach lover’s paradise.
There is something to appeal to everyone with the mixture of old towns, new resorts, restaurants and golf courses.
The old towns along the coast are full of tiny fishermen’s cottages, beautiful churches and relics of the Moors. There are constant reminders of the Moors 500 year plus occupation. The legacy of their colourful history is evident all around; the name itself is derived from Al Garb which means the western land. The Moors also left orange, olive, and almond groves, all of these still survive today.
Fishing is still a major way of life for the locals, brightly painted boats can be seen bobbing in the harbour. Fresh fish is served in a multitude of the superb restaurants, as is the wonderful meats, fresh fruit and vegetables. Eating out in Portugal is a wonderful experience, especially when the meal is accompanied by a few glasses of Portuguese wine.
The Eastern Algarve is relatively un-spoilt and under-developed. It offers a relaxed atmosphere for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas, while still having access to wonderful beaches.
