Walking and Running

Vilamoura is the ideal place to enjoy the outdoors, get in shape and be healthy. People come here looking for a little more than just a beach holiday, as it has a number of spaces prepared for walking, running and daily exercise.

Vilamoura is a city on the south coast of the Algarve with breathtaking views. The flat topography accompanied by the green of the parks, the blue of the sea and the yellow of the sand makes running an even more pleasant activity, with the constant change of scenery.

In the center of Vilamoura there is a huge garden with a track much used by people who enjoy physical activity, with an area designated for barbell exercises and other outdoor exercises and stretching, as well as small fountains where you can drink water. The IF Vilamoura is just a few minutes away from this area.

Leaving the If Vilamoura you can go on fantastic walks. The city is very well organized with pedestrian routes leading to the beach. If you prefer a longer route then there are a number of walking trails in the surrounding areas.

São Lourenço trail
This straight trail leads us to serene lagoons and the salt flats of Ria Formosa. This area is one of the most important wetland ecosystems in the Algarve, with protected salt pans and wading birds.

Paderne Castle Route
This circular route takes us to the historic castle around Paderne. Here you can explore the variety and often violent history of what is now the Algarve. Walk through fragrant fields, with a wide variety of birds.
