Tee Times Algarve Holidays – Algarve Nature Week – From 11th to 19th April 2015

We think this is an excellent event week that we highly suggest you to complement your Golf Holidays in Algarve. While staying and enjoying Golf you have the chance to better know the Algarve and it’s wonderful nature, both inland and sea coast.

Algarve Nature Week is a promotional event entirely devoted to nature tourism in the Algarve. During the event, there will be special offers available on more than 90 outdoor activities and 8 accommodation facilities, some of which enjoy a rural setting. This aim of this new event, which will be held for the first time between the 11th and the 19th of April 2015, is to draw attention to the Algarve’s natural beauty. So, how will it work? Well, to start with, there will be plenty of action for everyone who enjoys active holidays in unspoiled surroundings. And when we say plenty, we really mean plenty!

For nine days the event will be offering walks, birdwatching, dolphin and whale watching, boat trips, cycle outings, horseback and donkey outings, and even airborne and underwater activities. All at friendly prices so that you can take advantage of (almost) all the activities on offer.

Golf in Algarve is also an excellent way of experiencing the nearby pristine nature with wonderful inland and sea coast landscapes, where the courses are beautifully integrated, regarding the fauna and the flora.

Organised by the Região de Turismo do Algarve (Algarve Tourism Board) with support from Turismo de Portugal and in partnership with seven different bodies, the event also includes an exhibition at Faro’s waterfront park, the “Parque Ribeirinho”. The exhibition will be taking place from the 17th to the 19th of April, and various companies that operate in nature tourism in the Algarve will be exhibiting. This is a great opportunity to get to know them and discover the programme of experiences that they have created for you. Admission is free.

Quarteira – Vilamoura Promenade Connection

The previously announced “Passeio das Dunas” (“The Dunes Promenade”) project by the municipality of Loulé for the urban redevelopment of the coastal zone west of Quarteira – east of Vilamoura, which connects Quarteira to Vilamoura Marina’s has now started it’s works on the field. It is considered one of the most significant urban rehabilitation projects planned for the municipality of Loulé, for Quarteira and Vilamoura, but also for the Algarve.

The current route that connects the leftovers of what once used to be the old fishermen sheds, near the fishing dock, to the beach front that sides with the Vilamoura’s Marina, was being used extensively as a walk stroll by many but it clearly lacked the proper infrastructures and it was a contrasting gap.

With this intervention, performed in 17.7 hectares, it is intended to create a seaside promenade that connects the Vilamoura’s Marina to Quarteira’s beach promenade, with the creation of green spaces, focusing on pedestrian and cyclist circulation, creating recreational spaces, enhancing and rehabilitating the contact with the sea front and running as a new point of attraction, taking in consideration the built environment with the construction and enhancement of accesses to beaches which constitute the main “entertainment space” of these areas.

The redevelopment work zone develops between the Armação Street in Quarteira and the front of the Crowne Plaza Hotel (formerly Hotel Atlantis), being bounded on the south by the beaches and the fishing port of Quarteira and to the north by Vala Real and provides the resolution of the problem of Vala Real, with its partial coverage.

This intervention seeks to fundamentally change the character of the area, promoting a currently vacant site, a no man’s land, capable of living for itself as a source of energizing vitality but also as a requalified public space that is also a promoter of flows between different urban areas and beaches.

The works that have just started are expected to last for 13 months, nearing the end of 2015. It will surely bring value to the area for both the current population and the many visitors it receives, so its end is, naturally, being anxiously expected by many in the Algarve.

Tee Times Portugal HolidaysGolf Holidays in Portugal Now Less Costly, as Pound Strengthens

How about holidays in Algarve?

Do you plan to take a golf holiday in Portugal? Well if so, it may please you to know that you can now do so with extra spending money in your pocket, because sterling is flying high against the euro. In particular, the pound recently hit its highest versus the common currency in 2 years, or since August 21st 2012, at 1.2699.

Perhaps you would enjoy Lisbon or Oporto?

What this means for you if plan to holiday in Portugal is that you’ll get more euros when you exchange currencies. Let’s say for example that you intend to spend £600 on a week in Portugal. With that sum, you’ll now receive +€85 more than if you’d done so 18 months ago, when the pound was weak.

Or maybe the paradisiacal archipelagos of Madeira or Azores?

With this in mind, it’s a fantastic time to holiday in Portugal, as the strong pound cuts the cost of doing so!
