Life’s A Beach – SPOTLIGHT ON THE WYNDHAM GRAND ALGARVE, PORTUGAL

With the recent news that a Covid vaccine may well be just around the corner, 2021 ‘foreign’ holidays (and sunshine!) may soon be back at the top of the menu. So, here’s one to consider:

Nestled in the beautiful Ria Formosa Natural Park, this all-suite resort is the perfect base for beach lovers looking to embrace nature.
Guests can stroll along the golden sands of nearby Quinta do Lago Beach, or wander the maze of canals, islands and marshes, covering an area of about 18,000 hectares in the Ria Formosa Natural Park.

There is a host of water activities to keep guests busy including windsurfing, kayaking, and scuba diving at Quinta do Lago Beach and Lake.

Furthermore, guests can go wine tasting at the award-winning Quinta dos Vales, see the celebrated hand-painted tile interior of the Church of São Lourenço, and book a boat tour to take in stunning Algarve sea caves like the Benagil Cave.
After a day of exploring guests can relax in their spacious one bedroom suite whilst enjoying an evening cocktail on their private balcony overlooking the resort's lush gardens.

Room rates from £75 per night.
