Top Portimão & Praia da Rocha Activities to Try

  Portimão is the second biggest city in the Algarve and is located on the banks of the Arade River. The town is home to the popular Praia da Rocha resort and is also near to Ferragudo and Alvor making it a great place to visit.

Portimão has a beautiful Marina from where some boat tours depart, and also the pretty 'riverside zone' (Zona Ribeirinha) which is another popular departure point for trips.

There is plenty to see and do here. If you want to go on a boat trip join the Ophelia Catamaran and go on a Caves & Beach BBQ. Or to go on a Pirate Ship set sails with the Santa Bernarda on a full day or half day tour.

From Portimão you can also go to Silves on a river cruise along the Arade and through the countryside on route to this historic town with its hilltop castle.

If you want to discover more of the Algarve, the best option might be to go on a Jeep Safari to the Wild West Coast, Jeep Safari & Zoo de Lagos Tour, Jeep Safari & Surfing Tour or Canoeing, Walking, Jeep Safari & Lunch Tour.

And with the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve so nearby you can't miss some go karting or fantastic driving experiences they offer!
