A popular tourist destination, the Algarve is a well-established location for Northern European golfers searching for year-round sunshine, cultural and leisure attractions and, of course, Oceânico’s outstanding courses, accommodation and facilities, which continue to grow in popularity.
Most notably, the brand’s Amendoeira Golf Resort continues welcoming a growing number of golfers from key markets, with its two championship courses, designed by Ryder Cup legends, Nick Faldo and Christy O’Connor Jnr, and exceptional on-site accommodation. Add to that the Golf Academy & Fitting suite and recreational facilities, including two five-a-side Astroturf football pitches, six tennis courts, beach volleyball/football, a gymnasium, shop and bar. Guests can also explore a plethora of local attractions from Water Park and boat trips, to horse riding.
Amendoeira is located in central Algarve near the historic town of Silves and 45km from Faro airport. Other popular resorts include Belmar Spa & Beach Resort, which overlooks the beautiful Porto Mos beach in Lagos and is 5km from Praia de Luz and Baia da Luz Beach resorts situated 200m from the beach within the town of Praia da Luz,
Guests can book the most convenient flight times with several airlines including Monarch, British Airways and EasyJet from the UK. Aerlingus operates flights from the Republic of Ireland. Ryanair also now offers flights to Faro from the UK, Republic of Ireland and many other European destinations.
