Monte Gordo Hotels

Mini guide to Monte Gordo


Located on the Algarve and situated right at the Spanish border, Monte Gordo is a modern, tranquil holiday destination with a child-friendly beach surrounded by farms, a stone pine forest, and olive and citrus groves.

With a higher than average water temperature and weak sea currents along the 18kms stretch of sandy beach, bathing in these waters is the main pastime for visitors. Sun loungers and parasols can be hired at some parts of the beach and you can enjoy waterskiing, windsurfing and jet-skiing. Boats can be hired for sailing or deep sea fishing, and there are also a few golf courses in the area.

The town of Monte Gordo itself looks as if it has been built on the beach, which is not far from the truth. It is built in even quarters and the hotels are high-rise buildings with modern facilities. The streets are wide and the atmosphere is very laid-back. The place is currently being developed, and considerable expansion is being planned, including a new marina.

Monte Gordo has a good selection of international restaurants, ranging from traditional Portuguese, to classic Indian, and including the omnipresent pizza restaurant. There's no shortage of bars here and there are also a few nightclubs, plus a casino right by the beach. However, don't expect an intense nightlife.

A car is a necessity when visiting the many nearby attractions. To the west is the small village of Olhao, also on the Algarve and situated in the beautiful Ria de Formosa Nature Park. Also worth visiting is Huelva in Spain, with its important nature reserve of salt marshes (Las Marismas del Odiel). The monastery of La Rábida, just outside the town, is where Columbus studied and planned his first great voyage.

By car from Lisbon, take the A6, N2, and E1 east; from Seville take the A49 and E1 highways to reach Monte Gordo. From Barreiro, south of Lisbon, there are three trains a day with a change at the coastal line that runs the length of the Algarve. The nearest airport is Faro Airport to the west and, if a shuttle hasn't been arranged, take a taxi to the nearby train station or drive along the N125.
