Find things to do in Praia da Rocha
Praia da Rocha is one of the most popular resorts in the Algarve and it's easy to understand why! The beach is huge and during the summer months there are water sports galore, nets for beach volley ball and there's normally a programme of beach parties and sports events too!
All of the holiday essentials are right on the doorstep, or lining the Tomás Cabreira avenue to be precise, where there are restaurants, bars and shops from end to end. For more shopping, it's just a short nip into Portimão (the main town of Praia da Rocha) and a trip to the Aqua Portimão shopping mall is not to be missed!
For family fun, there are boat trips going from the riverfront in Portimão, the lovely Zoo Lagos is only 30 minutes away to the west and water parks and the Zoomarine theme park are between Lagoa and Guia to the east (between 15 and 25 minutes away). For a real treat for the teenagers, there's the "Kartódromo" go-kart track at the Autódromo race track at Mexilhoeira Grande, Portimão.
There are several golf courses in the area, the closest being the famous Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course (known as "The Penina") at the Penina Hotel & Golf Resort; which was the first resort course to be built in Portugal!
And if all this isn't enough, there's a whole host of other things to do in the Algarve too! Just take a look!
