Golf in East Algarve


One of the best golfing and holiday destinations in Europe is the Algarve for a number of reasons.

  • It boasts an average of over 3000 hours of sunshine over 300 days of sun a year. The sun shines for 10 to 12 hours per day on average for the entire summer season.
  • Golf courses have been designed by internationally recognized golf course designers such as Henry Cotton who designed Benamor Golf course and Jack Nicklaus’s Monte Rei Golf Course. They are challenging and created in beautiful natural landscapes.
  • Another important factor is accessibility. Faro Airport is the gateway to the Algarve and only 35 kilometers from Tavira.

Tavira Vacations Apartments offer competitive rates with the 5 golf courses that are within 5 to 25 minutes drive away.
