I liked how welcome families are, there are rides for kids, a lilltle outside market for adults , lovely golden sand beach, loads of bars and restaurants and a massive casino.
There are loads of things to do but you can get into big adventures if you get yourself a car and travel around the town. You have Spain 3 miles away, Castro Marin with his beautiful castle, vila real great for shopping and the city with most churches in Portugal Tavira!
I loved the food in Monte gordo, fresh fish, organic vegetbles, amazing wine and warm weather all year around.
Highly recommended for families and couples all ages.
