Bridge Tournament

The Charity Bridge Tournament that took place at the Beach Club last Friday 20th November was a fantastic success with 64 playing participants. The event raised close to € 4000 from donations, playing fees and a very well stocked tombola that had some fantastic prizes donated by local businesses and residents.
The purpose was to raise funds to help the ACCA (Helping children in need in the Algarve).
On a beautiful sunny autumn day, a buffet lunch was served on the terrace of The Albatroz Restaurant here at the Beach Club for participants and guests prior to the competition.
The ambience was pleasant and everyone had a wonderful afternoon.
Special thanks to the organizers of this event are well deserved. They all put in a lot of time and effort to make the event happen and give it the success it had. Particular thanks are given to:
  • Susan Hart, the main event organizer;
  • Constantino Jordan, the main sponsor and for giving the prizes;
  • Elizabeth McManus, who organized the fantastic tombola prizes;
  • Alex Onions, who put in so much effort to organize the Bridge competition and scoring;
  • Mo and Gwenda Daud and Janet Leffler for their help and organization;
  • All of the generous sponsors who made contribuitions;
  • The 64 players who took part in this event

    Portuguese Week at Dunas Douradas Beach Club

    Portugal's National Day, officially "Day of Camões, Portugal and the Portuguese Communities", marks the date of 'Luis de Camões' death in June 10, 1580 and is Portugal's National Day. Camões wrote the Lusiadas, Portugal's national epic poem celebrating Portuguese history and achievements. Although it is only officially celebrated in Portugal, Portuguese descendents throughout the world celebrate the holiday whether they live in Brazil, India, the US, Canada, another European country, or Macau.

    Here, at the Beach Club we decided to dedicate the whole week to the theme. We are organising a Portuguese Week between the 6th and the 13th of June. We have lots of surprises and special events planned for you. So, join us and enjoy:

    Daily Specials

    Our chef will dedicate each day of the week to a specific
    Portuguese region with typical dishes.

    A small "Tradicional Market"

    During this week, we will have a traditional market on our terrace,
    with stalls selling typical portuguese products.
    Open every day from 6.00 pm to 11.00pm.

    A Fado Night - 10th June

    On the 10th of June we will celebrate Portugal's National Day
    with a special dinner of typical Portuguese dishes and
    Live Fado Music.

    A Ranch folk night - 13th June

    About the Location

    Dunas Douradas lies in a privileged position in the Algarve's golden triangle; nestled between Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, right on the beach front overlooking the ocean.

    Dunas Douradas Beach Club is a 15 minute drive from Faro International Airport and costs around 20 Euros in a taxi.

    While having a car when you are here is a luxury for food shopping or sightseeing, taxis are relatively inexpensive if you want to travel outside the area, and many places are within walking distance of the resort. And what better way to explore the Golden triangle than walking on the beach along the golden dunes?
