Celebrate Easter in the Algarve


From family time to local traditions – we can’t wait for Easter

When it comes to Easter in the Algarve, the region really knows how to celebrate, filled with magical traditions, religious ceremonies, spectacular processions and endless opportunities for fun.

For 2024 – the celebrations will begin on March 24th for Palm Sunday, culminating on March 31st for Easter Sunday.

Vilamoura brings you the best of both worlds during the Easter holiday: whether you’re after a day spent at the beach, a traditional Holy service or a night out by the boats and sea.

For church services, Vilamoura offers the Blessing of the Palms and the Eucharist on Palm Sunday, the Celebration of the Passion of Christ on Good Friday and Easter Mass on Easter Sunday all at Vilamoura’s Church.

Shops will be closed on Easter Sunday, but you can prepare ahead of time for a

traditional Lamb dinner. Although Easter Monday is not a public holiday, why not take the day off for extra family time and to make the most of all Vilamoura has to offer?

For outdoor enthusiasts, Easter in the Vilamoura area offers a plethora of activities to enjoy. Charter a boat for a fishing trip, stroll along pristine beaches or embark on scenic hikes through the Environmental Park.

Or enjoy the spectacle of a parade: the Festa da Mãe Soberana (Feast of the Sovereign Mother) in nearby Loulé is one of the biggest processions in the country, taking place on Easter Sunday. It is a solemn procession in celebration of Easter and a fantastic event to witness, ending with an impressive firework display.

With its unique blend of culture, cuisine, and natural beauty, the Algarve promises an unforgettable Easter experience for all at Vilamoura.
