For golfers wishing to improve their game, The Pine Cliffs Golf Academy team offers a tuition service second to none and is equipped with the latest in teaching technology.

Southern Portugal including the Algarve enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot dry summers and mild winters. July and August are hot but temperatures are moderated by sea breezes.
