The Marina is the main centre of activity with a huge range of restaurants, bars and shops. Luis Figo’s ‘Bar Sete’ (bar 7) is also on the marina front.

Boasting a 1,000-berth marina, Vilamoura attracts the wealthy, yachtsmen, golfers, celebrities and in fact, anyone who just fancies enjoying a rather nice place in the sun.
