The Praca

The Praca is the bustling beachside complex lying at the heart of the Vale do Lobo community. This quaint cobbled area is the hub of social activity on the resort. It’s where the Vale do Lobo beach meets an area dedicated to fantastic restaurants, vibrant bars, nightly entertainment and a warm welcoming atmosphere.

Among the eateries here are the renowned restaurants Sandbanks Fish & Seafood Restaurant, La Terrazza and La Creperie Café. Bars are also well catered for with The Beach Bar, Monty’s, Deck Bar, Breeze Papagaio and the nightclub Gecko Disco in the complex.

During the summer months, the Praça comes alive with live entertainment. On the centre stage, an area dedicated to fun for young visitors, there are children’s entertainers, a bouncy castle and a safe relaxed atmosphere accompanied by the sound of the waves lapping against the beach.

  • 10 Restaurants and bars
  • Kids club Lobito Club and ParTee Mini Golf
  • Resort fashion and lifestyle store
  • Seaside pools with relaxation decks
  • Massage at the beach and pool
