The Algarve By Yacht

The Algarve in the south of Portugal is one of the best coastal regions in Europe boasting breath taking coastline and beaches.

The Algarve By Boat

The Algarve coastline is relatively short, but has huge diversity within its region: from east to west the coastline is less than 200km long, and yet attracts tourism from across the globe with its plethora of blue flag beaches and rock formations. The Algarve Coastline is best explored by boat to discover the secret coves and beaches only accessible by sea.

The Algarve boasts a number of marinas that can serve as a starting location for your yacht charter; however, the majority of luxury yacht charter boats depart from the Vilamoura Marina. Vilamoura is the largest marina in Portugal and is conveniently situated in the centre of the Algarve area, within 45 minutes of all major Algarve towns.

The western ports of Lagos and Portimao are primarily focused on sailing boats due to the winds, whereas Albufeira and Vilamoura are the hubs for motorboat charter alternatives.

Algarve Boat Rental Options

To really make the most of the Algarve we recommend hiring a boat with crew to act as a guided tour. Bare Boat Rentals in the Algarve are limited to RIBs, and it's not really recommended because the coastline has so many rocks and natural obstacles making it tricky to get to the best spots unless you know the area. Local knowledge is essential to make the most of the experience. Another advantage of renting a boat with crew in the Algarve is that you can simply sit back, relax with a glass in hand and let somebody else do the work! 

Have a look at some of the Boat Rental Options Algarve here, and then then reach out to us whereby we can make recomendations based on your group size, tastes and budgets. 

We offer a selection of boat hire and yacht charter options to cruise along the coastlne, to see the boats click HERE.
