Palmares Ocean Living & Golf delivers year-round beach resort lifestyle

·     Resort is walking distance to Blue Flag Meia Praia beach
·     Paragliding, sailing, beach volleyball & safe swimming conditions provide maximum appeal
·     3 miles of sand provide plentiful room for everyone, whatever the season
Sun. Rain. Sun. Rain. It’s a familiar pattern here in the UK. Just as you get the garden ready for summer, it pours. Sometimes for days. Those tantalising first warm, sunny days each year get everyone in the mood for enjoying the outdoors so is it any wonder then, that the idea of owning a second home on a year-round beach resort holds such intense appeal?
“Portugal is just a short flight from the UK, but its climate is worlds apart. Owning a home close to the beach here means year-round potential for enjoying the great outdoors. From lazy summer days of playing on the sand and swimming in the ocean, to long coastal walks as the winter sunlight shimmers on the water, the beach is somewhere to enjoy in every season.”

Its proximity to the beach is one of many factors that make the Algarve’s stunning Palmares Ocean Living & Golf, owned and operated by Kronos Homes, such an appealing location to own a second home. Lagos’ vast Meia Praia beach is just a short stroll from the resort, meaning owners can spend time on the beach all year round.
Named ‘half beach’ due to the Odiáxere river dividing the long strip of sand between Lagos and Alvor in half, Meia Praia is in many ways the perfect beach. Its three miles of soft, powdery sand provide plenty of room for everyone, even in the midst of summer, while the calm water conditions of the bay are ideal for swimming.
For more active beachgoers, paragliding, sailing and beach volleyball provide plenty of opportunities to get fit at Meia Praia, which has been awarded a Blue Flag in 2022 for its outstanding amenities and cleanliness. Beach bars, snack bars and restaurants that stay open late into the evening mean there’s no need to hurry home before watching the sun go down over the water.
The town behind the beach – Lagos – is one of the most popular in the Algarve and a particular favourite with visitors from the UK and the US. Pretty squares dotted with shops and orange trees, winding cobblestone streets and a rich architectural heritage entice visitors to explore, pausing frequently for an energising bica (espresso) and pastel de nata at one of the many tiny cafes scattered about town.
Food is big business in Lagos, with an array of outstanding restaurants showcasing fresh seafood and other regional flavours. The best in the area is Al Sud, which was awarded its first Michelin star just six months after opening in the clubhouse at Palmares Ocean Living & Golf. Chef Louis Anjos draws on distinctly Algarvian flavours from the sea, mountains and rolling meadowland of the region, which diners can savour while enjoying the spectacular ocean views from the restaurant’s spacious terrace.
Property owners at Palmares Ocean Living also benefit from the resort’s exceptional 27-hole golf course, which was designed by respected American architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. Future plans for the resort also include a pool and wellness facilities.
Those looking for a year-round beach resort property at Palmares have a range of options available to them. Signature apartments are available priced from €600,000. Land plots with preliminary architectural studies are also available, priced from €1.15 million.
“Owning a property so close to the beach means having the opportunity to appreciate the natural surroundings all year long. We have kept the density of construction at Palmares low – at just 5.7% – to forge an exceptional harmony between the homes, the ocean and the rolling greenery of the resort’s golf course. This means that every villa and apartment benefits individually from the stunning surroundings.”
