It's the same as any town unfortunately. There have been some muggings but the ones I have heard of are away from the marina in the more residential areas. I've never felt anything but safe in Vilamoura, it is quite a busy place, especially around the marina. I am vigilant wherever I go but there's nothing to worry about!

Never had a problem, always plenty of people about.

We stayed at Crowne Plaza and often walked back in the early hours!!

Even had a few nights out just two females (husbands had long days golfing) :o).....

Have been visiting Vilamoura for last 10 years and never seen any crime.

Just take the usual steps as you would do at home and you'll have a great time.

Agree with all the previous posts. Have had a place there 10 years. Certainly there is crime like everywhere else and you need to be vigilant. My sister had an attempted purse snatch a number of years ago in a laneway off the Marina at 2 in the afternoon! Around the Marina would be one of the safest places. Don't let it spoil your holiday. There is more crime at home .

Just be careful where you walk, a few years ago my son and 2 of his mates where mugged, phones, iPods and cameras taken, they all got stabbed.

Plenty of taxis on the main road just up the steps from the marina by Figo's bar.

We have noticed that the GNR are out in force this year in Vilamoura.
