Night time offers several clubs and discos, and for the gambling types within us a casino in neighbouring Vilamoura. As with most portugese resorts there are a great number of restaurants with wide range of choice. Cataplana (pork and clams steamed in a wok-like saucepan) is a speciality and never the same in any two restaurants.
