Go to the beach, in just 20 min.

Introducing the Macdonald Monchique Beach Express
A daily shuttle service running from 9AM to 6PM

Soon, we will be providing an exclusive new beach shuttle service for all our guests, so you can enjoy stress-free access to the beautiful Restinga Beach in 20 minutes. For just 5€ per person for a round trip (free for children under 12), you’ll be driven to Praia de Alvor, one of the largest, most picturesque beaches on the south coast. Set on a peninsula, this long, golden-sand beach is backed by dunes and looks out over blue, crystal-clear waters.

Macdonald Monchique Resort and Spa has exclusively teamed up with Alvor Beach and Restinga Restaurant, so it’s now even easier for our guests to enjoy a laid-back day at the beach. Bookings for sun loungers on the beach and tables for lunch can be made via our reception desk, so you can spend a relaxing morning lounging in the sun before enjoying freshly cooked seafood from Restinga’s beachfront terrace.
