Monte Gordo Holidays – Flat white sand as far as the eye can see.

A holiday in Monte Gordo is a real family affair, but it is equally as popular with couples and groups of all ages, including disabled people. Almost everywhere in the resort is easily accessible by pushchairs and wheelchairs, because it is very flat. The town is separated from the beach by the main road, which is lined with shops, cafes and restaurants, and is just a short stroll if you forget something while you are on the sands.

As popular with the Portuguese as it is with foreign visitors, Monte Gordo has a more cosmopolitan feel to it than some Algarve resorts, and there is a plentiful supply of restaurants where you can sample top quality Portuguese cuisine.

Kite and wind-surfing are available if you want a break from relaxing on the beach, but with the area being so flat cycling is one of the favourite pastimes and there are plenty of places to hire them. The town sits at the mouth of the river Guadiana, so you can take a leisurely ride up the river or join a jeep safari to the inland lakes. For a ritzy night out, the luxurious Casino Monte Gordo has two floors of modern and traditional casino games, over three hundred games machines and a nightly floorshow. You can dine in the elegant Ocean Salon, with views over the beautiful beach. And, as ever in the Algarve, you are never far from a golf course.
