Those of you planning a trip to Praia da Rocha
should consider employing our Praia da Rocha car hire
services as your main mode of transportation through the resort town.
Located at the mouth of the Arade Estuary, Praia da Rocha
is arguably the region's best known as well as longest established resort, providing wonderful beaches and warm waters since the 1930s.
The resort town features a two-kilometer-long beach framed by wonderful ochre cliffs and bathed by sheltered Atlantic waters. The beach is probably the most photographed beach in Europe thanks to its very architectural rock formations. The unrelenting comings and goings of the ocean have sculpted the soft cliffs into some rather fantastic shapes making them look like pinnacles, buttresses and caves that shimmer with reflected light.
Considering the fact that the entire Algarve region is filled with great resorts, going to whichever of them will prove to be a great idea, however what you should expect when visiting Praia da Rocha
might differ from a couple of the other resorts. For instance the promenade on the cliff top leads to the Fortaleza de Santa Catarina, a fortress built in 1621 to defend the towns of Silves and Portimao
from enemy fleets, so there's something for history enthusiasts.
When it comes to the town itself, it is almost constantly immersed in a vibrant holiday atmosphere, with a lot of bars, restaurants and night-clubs maintaining that buzz till late into the night. Accommodations cover a wide range of possibilities and for those with a bit of a gambling itch there's a top notch casino located right on the beach.
The advantages of employing our Praia da Rocha car hire
services can come in at several points during your trip there, whether it's when you want to visit various locations in the town or even more useful if you want to take a look at some of the surrounding locations. For instance, there are only three kilometers till the fishing port of Portimao which is a great place to visit for some incredibly fresh and tasty seafood, in a similar vein the picturesque village of Alvor is at a short drive away as well.
