The Club Med Da Balaia Resort is located thirty kilometres from Faro, on Portugal’s southern coast. The moment you arrive, feel the air hum with Fado melodies. Gaze at the two red cliffs jutting out into the Atlantic sea. To the west, the bedrooms, tennis courts and main pool form the heart of this all-inclusive Resort. To the east, the Zen pool is camouflaged by pine trees with a stunning view on the flying trapeze and the blond beach of Maria Luísa. Stimulate your taste buds at the Vasco Gourmet Lounge by trying the braised vegetables and creamy pastéis de nata tarts.
