White Shell Beach Villas is located a 4-minute walk from the Atlantic Ocean, near the 16th-century village of Porches. Here you will find a picturesque coastal village, famous for its wines and beautiful beaches, including Praia de Nossa Senhora da Rocha and Praia da Cova Redonda. Here you will find facilities such as toilets and a restaurant. The location of this domain is ideal if you want to explore different Portuguese villages and cities or if you want to visit one of the many picture-perfect beaches, with impressive rock formations, caves and cliffs. The many bays in the area offer a wealth of water activities such as snorkelling, diving, boat trips around the caves and hours of fun for the kids in the rock pools. For example, drive to Benagil (10 km), the beautiful bay from which you can take canoe trips. 

The charming old town of Lagoa with its whitewashed houses and cobbled streets is a 15-minute drive from White Shell. Here you will find cosy restaurants, shops and two theatres, all amenities for an enjoyable evening out. Other beautiful places on the coast are: Carvoeiro (14 km), a small seaside resort with cosy streets and nice restaurants. You can also drive to the popular holiday resort Portimão (21 km), traditionally an important trading and fishing port with fantastic restaurants and bars in the modern marina, and natural beauties in the Alvor estuary. A little further away is Lagos (45 km), where you can take a boat trip or stroll through the historic centre.

Faro airport is 40 minutes' drive away. In the centre of Faro (56 km), you will find old buildings and many atmospheric streets with trendy restaurants and bars. A little further away, near the fishing village Olhão (64 km), is the protected nature reserve Ria Formosa, a 60 km long lagoon with a maze of islands, white beaches and dunes with indigenous plants and wild animals. Not only can you hike here, but you can also spot animals or go on a cycling tour. There are also spectacular beaches and bays where you can often enjoy the view all by yourself.
