Unpretentious but beautifully prepared Portuguese cuisine is served for dinner at O Terraço, Hotel Martinhal’s restaurant. O Terraço is also the venue where a full buffet breakfast is served.

Activities & daytrips There's an exhilarating choice of activities to take part in as a guest of Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel. Martinhal Bay is ideal for watersports, and the water is safe for swimming and paddling. Sports fishing trips can be organised and scuba-diving expeditions arranged. Surfing and body-boarding are favourite pastimes. Leisurely bicycle tours can be undertaken; the more adventurous can grab a mountain bike. Horse riding and pony trekking tours explore off the beaten track. The high-spirited can climb, or go parasailing. A more down to earth option is to hike one of the many coastal paths that take in dramatic cliff-top views. Eco-carting is possible: effectively a go-kart with a sail. And a holiday in the Algarve wouldn't be the same without teeing off on one of the many superb golf courses that the region is famous for.
Best time to travel Portugal can be visited all year round, but the peak tourist season is in the summer months (June-September). A visit between February-April will allow guests to experience the much-celebrated Carnaval and Easter festivities.
Getting there Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel is approximately 85 km (53 miles) from Faro airport, around a 1 hour, 15 minute drive.
