Destinations / Portugal / The Algarve / Praia da Vau
Praia do Vau enjoys what is possibly one of the best beaches in all the Algarve - a big boast indeed in a country where superb sandy beaches are the norm. The beach is long and sandy and has become popular with many famous Portuguese personalities. Very family oriented, the waters are shallow, clean and clear and shelve gently for safe and pleasant bathing. The resort also boasts a handful of golf courses and a good variety of water sports, so well suited to the active holidaymaker.
Praia do Vau also has an excellent selection of bars, restaurants and shops, so there is plenty of diversion both by day and by night.
Once just a tiny hamlet, this one time fishing village has become an increasingly popular place to visit. The resort is delightfully laid back during the day and although there are good pubs and local eateries when the sun goes down, Praia do Vau has a charm and attraction more suited to couples and families.
Situated midway between Alvor and Praia da Rocha you get the best of all words in this beautiful resort.
