Valverde City Guide

Valverde or Vale Verde (Green Valley in English), is close to the peaceful village of Luz and around 6 km away from the vibrant town of Lagos. Located in the Barlavento Region, it’s a place of stunning natural beauty situated in the western part of the Algarve, characterized by an Atlantic climate, high cliffs and beautiful reddish-yellow rock formations with sandy beaches.

Accommodation options available in the area include golf and spa resorts, designer hotels, villas with swimming pools and small cottages.

Go to the Beach

Praia da Luz is the nearest beach, just a short five minute drive away. One of most famous beaches in the Barlavento region, it’s been awarded Blue Flag status thanks to its pristine water and top notch services. It offers perfect conditions for water sports such as scuba diving, waterskiing and kayaking. Soak in the views of a beautiful black rock cliff; the result of volcanic lava flow, formed millions of years ago.

Treat Yourself to a Spa

Valverde is a great place to visit for health spas and you’ll find plenty located in the various resorts. Why not pamper yourself silly with a relaxing massage and facial and forget your worries for just a little while.

Play Golf

Practice your swing at the Boavista Golf Resort. Its 18 hole championship course is one of the best in the Algarve, with breathtakingly beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Experience a Mountain Tour

Want to get your blood pumping during your stay at Valverde? Then take an off-road 4x4 Tours of the nearby mountains and bounce your way down the rocky tracks. Or, if you’d rather make it under your own steam, why not take a climbing or walking tours of the area.

Visit Praia da Luz’s Landmarks

Make sure you take some time to visit nearby Praia da Luz’s fantastic landmarks while you’re staying in Valverde. The Roman Archaeological Site of Praia da Luz is a must, as is the main church of Nossa Senhora da Luz. Then there are the imposing Fort and Castle of Nossa Senhora da Luz, which are perfect for the history and architecture lovers amongst you.

Visit Lagos

Lagos is one of the most visited cities in the Algarve. Visitors flock here to enjoy its delicious food, lively nightlife spots and beautiful sun kissed beaches. One of the highlights of the region is Ponta da Piedade, a series of unreal rock formations that have been carved out from cliffs. Take a boat tour out to get a real good look.


You’ll find a great selection of both traditional Portuguese dishes and international cuisine in Praia da Luz, and a healthy mix of tourists and locals in the restaurants. In Lagos, there is an even larger selection of restaurants serving classic dishes made with clams, plates of barnacles, chunks of octopus, moray eel, squid and anchovies. If you like sweets you must try the local cookies made from almond paste, egg yolks and syrup.


There are supermarkets in Luz and large hypermarkets in the nearby town of Lagos. If you are looking for a greater variety, Aqua Portimão Shopping Centre is a 30 minute drive away and can cater to all your shopping needs.
