The Eastern Algarve is only a 50 minute drive from Faro airport and easily reached via the main A22 motorway.
Tavira and Montegordo are the two main resorts, and there are six courses in the region, and a further six or seven just over the border into Spain's Costa de la Luz. One of the latest courses to open in this region is Monte Rei, a fantastic course, and a real golfing experience.
The area is relativly unspoilt, the majority of restaurants are traditional Portugeuse, it is not known for its night life, but for a relaxing golfing holiday it is certainly recommended.
Monte Gordo is a traditional Portugeuse Beach Resort, it has some of the best beach's in Portugal and in summer months it is very busy. During the main golfing season, from October to April May time, the resort is not so busy, but most of the beach bars and restaurants stay open and it makes for a good golfing holiday experience.
Tavira is the largest town in the region and is a good base from which to play the courses. It is a typical Portuguese town, developed from a fishing village, to a commercial and tourist centre...
