Vila Real De Sta Antonio

Vila Real de Santo António has a charming city and an incredible coastline for visitors to discover and enjoy. The long stretch of beach at Vila de Santo António is the last stop before reaching Spain. On the very eastern edge of the Algarve coastline, Vila Real de Santo António beach is expansive with typical gold-hued sand and exceptionally warm water. There are no amenities close by, so be sure to pack an icebox, umbrella and everything you will need to enjoy the simple pleasures that this remote beach offers.

The city of Vila Real de Santo António is located on the Guadiana River, which is the river that separates the Algarve from Spain. A connecting bridge was constructed in the 1990’s, making it easy for holidaymakers to go back and fourth between the two countries. So if you care to pop over to the Spanish town of Ayamonte for an authentic tapas lunch, it’s entirely possible. The city is quaint, quiet and is infused with traditional Algarve culture around every corner. Spend a leisurely afternoon meandering the beachfront promenade to the riverside marina. Then continue around the old market and picturesque town square where you can find shops selling local handicrafts and ceramics, cafés and restaurants. The seaside city is steeped in thousands of years of history for those willing to unearth it. If you take day trips to the neighbouring towns such as Cacela-a-Velha, Alcoutim and Castro Marim, you’ll learn about the region’s storied history while visiting castles, forts, museums and ancient ruins.

Vila Real de Santo António is quite far from the action of busier resorts. While there are sangria slinging bars, the nightlife here is very low-key. Therefore, it is an ideal destination for families and couples who desire a tranquil and restful holiday. The city and beach are also popular with mature travellers who come for the warm weather during the off-season.
