Operating from a prime location which is just 400 metres away from Praia dos Bicos beach, Aqua Pedra dos Bicos Design Beach Hotel is a luxurious, adults-only hotel with facilities just as impressive as its fantastic location. The hotel is just 500 metres from Albufeira’s famous nightlife scene, meaning you’ll never be lost for things to do in the evening. Alternatively, the same walk will bring you to a host of cafés, restaurants, bars, and supermarkets.
With a helpful 24-hour reception desk at Aqua Pedra dos Bicos Design Beach Hotel, it’s easy to get out and explore the local surroundings. Contrastingly, with two outdoor pools, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a relaxing massage room, you’d be forgiven for wanting to stay at the hotel as much as possible. Serenata Restaurant is Aqua Pedra dos Bicos’ onsite restaurant and it offers a unique international fusion menu in both buffet and á la carte format. The lounge bar serves up local and international drinks, as well as a selection of light bites. If your curiosity gets the better of you and you find yourself itching to explore the further Algarve, you can rent both bikes and cars directly from the hotel.
The white-painted houses of Albufeira rise marvellously above the turquoise Atlantic sea and the white beaches that for decades have attracted tourists from near and far. Here you can bask in the sun, stroll along the promenades and narrow streets, or explore the variety of activities that are available in the water. Go snorkelling, SCUBA-diving or take a boat tour to see dolphins play in the waves; or explore the coves and the unique caverns that have been carved out by the erosion of water over millions of years.
For those seeking more adrenaline-fueled things to do, you can go windsurfing, jet skiing or cut loose in one of the many waterparks that are found along the coast. Algarve is a rich in culture, geography and wildlife. Watch flamingos, Caspian tern and other exotic birds gracefully flock in the protected grasslands, or head along the coast and in-land to see a more rural aspect of the coastline. As the evening announces itself, find a restaurant or a café from where you can toast the sunset with a cold glass of Portuguese wine, while darkness falls over the cliffs, the citrus groves and the sea.
