The 12th green on the Quinta da Ria Course overlooks the Ria Formosa estuary
Quinta da Ria Golf
Vila Nova de Cacela (Tavira), Algarve, Portugal
There are two 18-hole golf courses, Quinta da Ria and Quinta de Cima, at Quinta da Ria Golf. Both are located in a spectacular location on the coast of the Eastern Algarve, locally known as “Sotavento”. Situated in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, there is no building allowed around the golf courses.
Quinta da Ria Golf Course
Quinta da Ria Golf has already been described by experienced golfers as the most beautiful course in the region. In fact, perched above the Ria Formosa estuary, the views down to the sand below, the tidal waters and the ever flowing currents are quite breathtaking. The concentration will drop, the mind will wander… Keeping your score at the forefront of the thought process may not be so easy… and, in fact, you may not want to!
Quinta de Cima Golf Course
Quinta de Cima Golf is a magnificent 18 hole golf course and a formidable test of golf off any of the tees as well as a truly exceptional challenge. The whole area is blessed with a profound peacefulness. From everywhere on Quinta de Cima Golf, the views are spectacular and inspiring — with views to both the sea and the mountains. Old centenary olive and carob trees, together with the surrounding orange trees and vineyards, maintain the originality of the region landscape. It looks like as if the course has been there for centuries. This is a protected area and hopefully will remain this way forever!
