About Quarteira :
Quarteira has seen a lot of development in recent years, leaving it characteristically high-rise in and around the town. Quarteira has still, however, managed to retain its Portuguese character and is particularly popular with Portuguese holidaymakers. The best part is the lovely palm-lined promenade, Avenida Infante de Sagres, known as the "Marginal", where you can spend time relaxing with lovely walks along the seafront and on the outdoor terraces of cafés and bars all around.
Quarteira Beach is beautiful and rock-free and there are plenty of eating places with the Avenida Infante de Sagres running along behind it, which you can call on for refreshments. Quarteira still boasts a local fishing community and the fishermen can be seen at work at the western end of the beach. The catches are sold at the nearby fish market early in the morning and will end up on your plate for lunch or dinner the same day.
Quarteira offers a huge range of culinary delights, with the emphasis, of course, on the beautifully fresh fish and shellfish dishes such as grilled sardines, "cataplanas", "caldeirada" (a kind of fish stew) and prawns, to name but a few.
Quarteira really is an ideal resort for a family holiday - apartments and hotels line the sea front so have fabulous views and easy access to the gorgeous beach and all the restaurants and cafés that line the Marginal. The long sandy beach is ideal for children and the water here is calmed by a series of breakwaters, giving safer swimming conditions.
