Da Balaia – Perfect for Golf!
Da Balaia is the perfect resort for golf enthusiasts
Whether it’s your first visit to Portugal, or your 51st, Da Balaia in the Albufeira region of the Algarve, never fails to impress. Sitting on top of distinctive red cliffs, this resort is a favourite with families, couples and particularly golf-enthusiasts! The holiday that you can expect from this luxury Club Med resort is designed to relax or stimulate you as much as you want. You can choose to spend your time soaking up the sun by the pool or on the beach. You can even set yourself the goal of completing a tennis or golf training course and reaching a particular level of achievement. You might even get a certificate to prove it! There are activities nearby that are also popular and many use this resort as a base to indulge their passion for diving or quad biking.
Upon nearing Da Balaia for the first time, you’ll be struck by the impressive design of the place. With 372 rooms in total, it is divided into three separate hotels but connected by beautifully lit glass walkways. The building itself is nestled amongst the pine trees of its vast grounds and it certainly makes for an impressive sight! The rooms are generally spacious and many have terraces where you can sit with a glass of port and enjoy the sea view.
So what can you do here? When you’re not enjoying the top class international cuisine on offer at one of the site’s two restaurants, swimming in the pool, or having a personal lesson at either the tennis or golf academy, there’s plenty to do nearby. You can make the most of the sunshine on some of the local sandy beaches, take a boat trip in search of dolphins or, if you’ve got the kids with you, spend a day at the Albufeira adventure park. In actual fact, this park is just as fun for adults too, so if you’re keen on assault courses, you’re unafraid to scale the trees on a zip wire and you fancy running around the woods shooting balls of paint at other adults, you’ll love it!.
We’ve been talking about daytime activities, but there is a vibrant night-life in this part of Portugal too. Sherry’s bar is the big name in the area and it’s on the Club Med Da Balaia site, but there are also plenty of beach bars and nightclubs on the Albufeira Strip. This is a bit like the Las Vegas strip, but with fewer casinos and a lot more kids staying up late!
