The pretty village of Monte Gordo is located on the eastern end of the Portuguese Algarve, close to the Spanish border, and offers everything you could hope for from an idyllic beach break. The landscape is characterized by the water which has shaped it, as it is situated at the point where the Guadiana flows into the Atlantic Ocean. The horizon is sweeping and low, with sand dunes, farmland, sea and sky all merging one into another. There are stunning white sandy beaches which visitors can stroll for hours or try one of the many watersports on offer, and nature reserves perched on the banks of the river which are veritably teaming with wildlife. Previously a bustling fishing village whose main catch was tuna, Monte Gordo has reinvented itself as a haven for holidaymakers who throng here for the balmy climate. With the delights of both Portugal and Spain on your doorstep, there is a wealth of things to do and see should you tire of swimming and sunbathing. Faro Airport is only 45 minutes or 60 kilometres away by airport shuttle or airport taxi, so why not come and see for yourself?
