Why not start your day by having breakfast followed by a relaxing swim in the heated pool at your hotel, and then get dressed up before heading to watch the carnival and join in with the fun? When you go to Vilamoura carnival, the more sparkly you are the better!
In the evening, find a bar that is hosting a carnival event, or head to a party where you can dance the night away. You may also be able to find costume parties or competitions if you have decided to get dressed up, which will add something extra special to your holiday.
Alternatively, you could choose to go to nearby Loulé which hosts its own carnival that has been running for over 100 years and is the oldest in Portugal.
Whether you stay in Vilamoura or go exploring Loulé or Quarteira you will be sure to find several venues, including bars and restaurants, holding the most fun-filled carnival parties, balls, mask contests.
