What to do in Isla Canela – Family days out – See Vilamoura In A Whizz

As the weather starts to cool down I think this is a lovely autumn activity. We enjoy a day out and this would be ideal. Head over the boarder and follow the road towards Faro for around 65 minutes and you will arrive In Vilamoura.

Pick up your Segway, strap on your helmet and begin the tour with a comprehensive orientation session that will help you get comfortable with the electric, self-balancing vehicle.

Once you feel confident steering your Segway, set off behind your guide. Cruise along the coastline at a leisurely pace, soaking up the ocean breeze. Admire views of the Falésia and Quarteira beaches, idyllic and seemingly never-ending stretches of golden sand. During the tour, stop for several breaks, during which the guide will explain more about the local area.

Zip up toward the Vilamoura Marina, where hundreds of vessels, including opulent yachts, are berthed. Then, cruise by local markets and witness the flurry of activity as vendors hawk all sorts of freshly picked fruits and vegetables.

Toward the end of the tour, stop at a fish market, where you’ll have the chance to hop off your Segway and browse the stalls of freshly caught fish and perhaps even pick up some tasty local specialties to cook for dinner later that day.

After 1.5 hours, your tour finishes back and the departure point in Vilamoura.

“The tour was one of the highlights of our visit. Andrea was punctual and lovely. We covered much within 1.5hours and saw parts of Quarteira that we could have missed. Andrea was also very patient; allowing us to buy and try a roadside roasted snack and taking photos and videos along the way.”
