Monte Gordo is a modern resort mainly focused on the summer season. It is located about 60 km from Faro airport and is full of beautiful sandy beaches. A lively but relaxed atmosphere during the summer months attracts tourists of all ages. Since the beautiful sandy beaches are safe and the sea is shallow without strong sea currents, Monte Gordo is ideal for families.
The history of the city will certainly not be in your mind, given that the remains of an old fishing village that once stood there are barely noticeable. If you wish to see and hear a piece of history, you can go on a day trip to some of the surrounding historic towns such as Tavira and Castro Marim. There is also a beautiful pine forest nearby where you can hike or bike.
