Parchal is a popular place to visit while you are exploring Algarve as some of the city’s main attractions are nearby. Two attractions that should be on every visitor’s itinerary is the fascinating Fort of Santa Catarina and the much-loved Portimao Museum. If you have time, don’t miss Portimao Marina and the Sao Joao do Arade Fort.
Get active out-of-doors while you are in the area. Relax and enjoy the fresh air. Stretch your legs and take the family to a local beach, such as Praia Grande in Lagoa and Rock Beach in Portimao.
Grab your credit card and head to Aqua Portimao in Portimao for a satisfying dose of retail therapy.
After a day enjoying the charms of Parchal, rest up in one of the area’s popular hotels or serviced apartments. The Hotel Algarve Casino, Portimao, the Tivoli Marina Portimao and the Vitor'S Village, Lagoa are just some of the many great places to stay around here.
