Mont Gordo

Lying just over 3 km from the Spanish border, Monte Gordo which once was a sleepy fishing village, has now been developed into a bustling sea side resort attracting and catering for both Portuguese and international holiday makers. Because of its Mediterranean climate and location near to the River Guardiana, Monte Gordo boasts the warmest waters and largest beach in the Algarve. To the east of Monte Gordo, the River Guadiana has been a natural frontier for many centuries, forming the boundary between Roman Portugal and southern Spain.
