The sailing and recreational facilities 500 metres away on the lake close to the Shack and Casa do Lago restaurant complement the sea and sun bathing of the ‘blue flag’ Quinta do Lago beach with its renowned beachside restaurants. Beach access is facilitated by a car parking area and distinctive footbridge directly onto the beach (see map). The beach may also be accessed by foot along the footpath and bridge from the car park further down Avenue Ayrton Senna past Vale dos Pinheiros.
The Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, along the south west of Quinta do Lago boasts nature trails for walkers, joggers and cyclists alike. As one of the most renowned locations in Europe, birdwatchers benefit from the observation hide and can find some 75 different species of migrating and indigenous birds, including the splendid pink flamingo.
Vale dos Pinheiros exudes 5-star qualities characteristic of the entire Quinta do Lago estate and surroundings and continually seeks ways to deliver even more quality and pleasure for residents and visitors.
