Families are guaranteed a splashing good time on and off the water at Lisbon’s five-star Praia D’El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort this spring and summer.
Surfing, paddle boarding, sea kayaking and world-class golf are just some of the attractions on offer at the popular Portuguese resort, which sits on Lisbon’s magnificent Silver Coast, with seven nights’ bed-and-breakfast for a family of four bookable from €1,547, or from €221 per night in a double room with a golf view.
All watersports take place in and around Peniche, one of the coolest places to hang out in Portugal, and a surfers’ paradise, having hosted numerous top international events including the World Surf League. Tuition can be booked for young guests – and their parents – in an array of sports including surfing, bodyboarding, paddle boarding, canoeing, snorkelling and diving, with lessons starting from €35 per person.
Golf comes courtesy of the resort’s two 18-hole championship courses, including West Cliffs Golf Links – one of the new stars of European golf and a must-play venue for any fan of the game.
Featuring spectacular views of the Atlantic from every hole, the course only opened last summer but is already predicted to be the new number one in Portugal, and was named as the ‘World’s Best New Golf Course’ at the 2017 World Awards.
Both West Cliffs and Praia D’El Rey are ranked among the top courses in Europe, while players of all abilities can also improve their skills at the resort’s recently-upgraded golf academy.
Packages, which are based on two people sharing a room, feature bed-and-breakfast accommodation in a garden or golf-view room in the resort’s five-star hotel or fully-serviced self-catering apartments, with complimentary return transfers to Peniche and West Cliffs also included.
As well as golf, Praia D’El Rey boasts an extensive array of world-class sports, leisure and accommodation facilities including a Marriott hotel, a wide selection of villas, a tennis academy, a luxury spa and health club and numerous restaurants.
Guests have a choice of five restaurants to choose from, all serving fresh and authentic produce that Portugal is famous for, while the comprehensive range of therapies and treatments on offer at the Kalyan Spa promise to restore energy and balance to the body after a day at the beach or on the fairways.
