Right in the centre of the south of the Algarve, the resort of Quarteira is the perfect place for people wanting some culture from their trip to Portugal. The city can be traced back to Roman times and King Dinis granted Quarteira its charter on 15 November 1297. Now Quarteira, a once tiny fishing village, has become one of the most popular tourist resorts on the Algarve, celebrated for its gorgeous golden beaches, fantastic fresh fish and woodland filled with stone pine. An incredible resort, offering the latest facilities and a wealth of fun activities while retaining the charm and stunning landscape that make Quarteira holidays a firm, family-favourite with travellers across the globe.
A cheap holiday to Quarteira is ideal for families and couples looking to laze on sumptuous sands. The Blue Flag beach is wide, straight and long enough to take a lovely, leisurely walk. Alternatively you can potter along the palm-lined promenade, Avenida Infante de Sagres, known as the 'Marginal', for a little shade. This is an ideal place to grab a coffee, sit in one of the many restaurants and relax looking out across the stunning seashore.
