Lago Alqueva, Portugal

Boat for 2 x guests in double cabin with ensuite. (space for 2 x guests sleeping in living area)

Enjoy plenty of sunshine, swimming and watersports in clean warm waters. Anglers can fish for black bass, carp and more. Numerous activities await such as cycling, quad bike riding or for a slower pace of life why not discover the richness of fauna and flora, or historical interests such as fortified villages, archaeological sites and locally produced traditional handicrafts and pottery.

Taste regional traditional cooking and a meal with a view at the panoramic restaurant on the port. Don’t forget the Amieira team offer an ‘onboard menu’ and ‘onboard shopping’ service.

The region boasts waters of an incredible quality, where both nature lovers and watersports fans will find an abundance of things to see and do. Remember your camera as there are photo opportunities aplenty! Head off with your crew of family or friends to moor on an islet for a night ‘Robinson Crusoe’ style or venture to other stops that allow easy access to the beautiful surrounding villages and places of interest such as the Alqueva dam, an amazing structure built in 2002.

Other places to visit are the new identically built village of Luz, replacing the old Luz that was swallowed up by the Lago Alqueva (don’t miss the museum); Mourão with its castle and fortifications from the 13th century; the fortified city of Monsarazwith its narrow and paved streets and a splendid bullring. With more than 300 sunny days per year a boating holiday on the Lago Alqueva can be enjoyed at any time of the year!
