  • Beach, Quarteira


    Quarteira's Blue Flag beach is wide, straight and fairly long at around 1 mile (1.6km) in length. The best part is the lovely palm-lined promenade, Avenida Infante de Sagres, known as the "Marginal", where you can spend time relaxing with lovely walks along the seafront but be warned there's little in the way of shade.

    Quiet Indian

    This Indian restaurant is located next to the hotel I stayed in (the Atismar – see my accommodation tips) and when I visited, one Saturday night, I was the only one in there! Now, this normally isn’t a good sign and is unheard of back home in the UK (Saturday night is always busy for Indian restaurants) but I need not to have worried as the food...

    Local buses

    by Willettsworld Updated Dec 11, 2010

    I hired a car for my time in the Algarve as I wanted the freedom of exploring all the way along the coast from Cabo de Sao Vicente in the west to Vila Real de Santo Antonio on the Spanish border in the east and so didn't use the local bus. However, there is a very useful English website dedicated to bus routes and timetables etc which you can find below. If you don't have a car then this is the next best way of getting around the Algarve as well as the train, details of which are also provided on the same website.

    Favorite thing: For a useful map of Quarteira, visit the website below. As well as the places mentioned on the map, there's a small supermarket opposite No.25 (Irish Bar) underneath the Carteia Apartments.
