Quarteira's Blue Flag beach is wide, straight and fairly long at around 1 mile (1.6km) in length. The best part is the lovely palm-lined promenade, Avenida Infante de Sagres, known as the "Marginal", where you can spend time relaxing with lovely walks along the seafront but be warned there's little in the way of shade.
Along with some shopping (which you can find lots of souvenirs to bring home to people) the marina provides a great place to check out some pretty high end boats. I actually enjoyed my walk along the marina, even though I was a little disenchanted with Vilamoura.in general
You can choose to charter boats to go along the coast or for a deep sea fishing excursions.
This was not something I'm interested in, so I honestly can't say if this was a good casino or not. However, if you like to gamble and happen to be in the area it is nice that there is a small casino around.
I was in the Algarve during the fall (October) so the water was very cold. It was still a gorgeous beach with a rock free surf and a nice place to get some sun. The Romanian Canadian and the native Portuguese didn't seem to mind the coldness so maybe it was just me!
There is a new health center in Quarteira, with cheap prices. I tried a massage for 15€ and in a another time I have done acupuncture and I loved it. Just try after a walk in the beach...
I think this is Quarteira's main church but it is very small. I think it's called Igreja Nossa Senhora da Conceicao (Church of Our Lady of Conception) and is located in the older part of town.
Quarteira's fish and veg markets are located along at the far western end of the beach front and are fairly small compared with other markets I visited in the Algarve.
