Benfarras is a tranquil countryside resort set back from the coast and close to the bustling and upmarket tourist centre of Vilamoura. Only 25km west of Faro airport, with excellent sports and leisure facilities, Benfarras is an ideal choice for families and the elderly on a beach holiday to Portugal.
Benfarras itself is a sleepy, secluded place perfect for getting away from it all but with the vibrant life of Albuferia and the elegance of Vilamoura close at hand. Albufeira is the most famous resort in the Algarve with its whitewashed houses and cobbled streets coiling down to Fisherman’s Beach. Here you will find a vast stretch of sandy beach lapped by clear and clean waters, perfect for soaking up the sun, swimming and water sports. Alternatively there is the Blue Flag approved beach of Falesia near Vilamoura. A regular bus service connects these local hot spots.
Vilamoura is an elegantly developed resort and its stunning marina is one of main attractions of a package holiday to this area. Home to more than 100 bars and restaurants clustered around the picturesque port, you will be spoilt for choice on dining options. Once you’ve found one to suit your taste you can while away the warm evening watching the boats go by.
