Take a chance on the Algarve
Put on your Sunday best and dig out your finest jewellery for a glitz and glam night at the casino. The name Monte Gordo just sounds like a resort that should have a casino and this town lives up to all the expectations. With more than 200 slot machines and an array of gambling tables, this casino has plenty of room for everyone. Pull up a chair and exchange some chips and imagine, just for one night, it could be you winning the big bucks. If gambling’s not your thing, take a chance on some of the other facilities the casino has to offer. There’s a high quality restaurant and bar where you can do some of the best people watching you’ll do in a while. Outside of the alternative reality of the roulette table the village goes about a traditional way of life. The fishermen cycle across town to deliver their catches of the day while the women head to the kitchen to start preparing them with a bit of 50s housewife glamour.
Boasting? Monte Gordo? Never!
Monte Gordo has been accused of boasting about its beach and too right! The stretch of sand here is the longest and the waters the warmest in the whole of the Algarve. If they’re allowed to boast about anything it should certainly be their beach, the golden sands appears to stretch on forever underneath a sea of colourful umbrellas. The busiest areas of the beach are, quite obviously, surrounding the major tourist spots. If you’re willing to walk a little bit further away from the restaurants and shops you’re almost certain to find a more secluded spot. The pine-clad mountains make the perfect backdrop for a relaxing escape to the beach. There is a number of water sport centres dotted along the shoreline offering novices and pros the chance to rent equipment and take to the seas.
