Forget the stress of everyday life and relax at one of the Algarve’s spas. Found mainly at exclusive resorts, the regions spas benefit from quality sea-front locations.
Leave your skin glowing and energise your body with spa treatments including traditional and oriental medicines, massages and water-based aromatherapy.
Experience pure luxury with a hot stone massage at the Quinta do Lago spa, or try a ‘Cleopatra’s Bath’ at the Centro Vita Vital.
There are other ways to relax in the region too. Take a boat trip to the Ria Formosa Nature Park, or head to Lagos and visit Sagres, the point of departure for the Portuguese maritime adventurers.
Alternatively, spend the day sunbathing and swimming in the sea. The Algarve is home to some of the prettiest beaches in Europe, with the Praia da Marinha just one of them.
The region is renowned for its golf as well, with over 30 top quality courses. So whatever spa you visit, there will always be a couple of excellent courses within putting distance. At the Quinta do Lago spa they even offer a massage specifically designed for golfers.
