Our guide to the family friendly beach resort of Dunas Douradas
The 5 star luxury resort of Dunas Douradas, which translates to 'golden sand dunes', is located between Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo on the Algarve coast. Set in 76 acres of woodland and orange groves and adjoining one of the Algarve's finest stretches of golden beaches, this smaller and quieter development is only 20 minutes from Faro airport.
The resort is a development of privately owned villas arranged in ten zones, with a variety of properties, all with their own pools set in well tended gardens.
Dunas Douradas properties are located near the beach known as 'Praia do Garrao' considered to be one of the finest beaches in the Algarve, which is why Dunas Douradas Rentals are so popular. The nearby Parque Natural da Ria Formosa is a heritage protected area of lagoons and wet areas that support the local wildlife population. Being a short walk away from our Dunas Douradas villas you are in an ideal spot to enjoy them.
