Pine Cliffs Resort
Surrounded by lush pine forests from which it takes its name, Pine Cliffs, A Luxury Collection Resort, is one of Portugal’s leading holiday hotspots. A firm favourite with families and luxury travellers, this sweeping coastal property offers much to many, including excellent accommodation, delicious dining options, and even a 7,000-square-metre children’s village.
Set within 168 acres, this award-winning resort is home to 217 light and airy rooms and suites, with terracotta-tiled floors, crisp white walls, and spectacular views across either the ocean or manicured gardens from the privacy of a balcony or terrace.
Experience authentic Portuguese flavours using vibrant, locally sourced produce in the selection of restaurants, including fresh seafood at O Pescador, mouth-watering steaks at Piri Piri Steakhouse, Japanese specialities at Yakuza Algarve by Olivier, and casual beachside fare at Maré at Pine Cliffs Resort.
Beyond the vast grounds lie ochre-coloured cliffs that lead to a beautiful sandy beach, accessed via a private elevator and wooden bridge, where guests can spend days basking in the sunshine or partaking in watersports in the shimmering sea. Golf lovers can tee off on the immaculate green fairways of the resort’s glorious nine-hole course, while tennis enthusiasts enjoy a leisurely game or lessons in the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy. Yoga, fitness classes and spa treatments at the Serenity Spa provide the perfect way to relax and refresh, while the Porto Pirata Kids Club and Junior Club entertains children from six months to 13 years old.
