Paddleboarding | SUP
Praia da Rocha
SUP (stand-up paddleboarding) is a popular pastime in Portugal, and can be performed on still waters or ocean waves. Lessons are available in Praia da Rocha, which offers both options, due to its combination of gentle rivers and wild ocean.

Home to numerous golf courses, many designed by internationally renowned architects and designers, it’s no surprise the Algarve was named Best Worldwide Golf Destination by IAGTO in 2014. Here are some of the best courses in the area.
