Herdade dos Salgados Golf
Surrounded by water, the 18-hole Herdade dos Salgados Golf links course boasts a scenic location within a protected wildlife reserve, where numerous lakes create habitats for endangered species of birds. Situated along the sunny coast between Albufeira and Armação de Pêra, the course is set on mostly flat terrain – although golfers require precise technical skills and an accurate drive to reach the greens. A thousand olive trees have recently been planted to enhance the picturesque beauty of this course. Lovely beaches are within walking distance and the ocean views are truly magnificent.
