AP ORIENTAL BEACH WITH HISTORICAL CONNECTION TO PRAIA DA ROCHA
The AP Oriental Beach Hotel, with its origins in a historic building constructed at the beginning of the last century, the Casino da Praia da Rocha, is today, after the thorough renovation which introduced its oriental features, a prestigious brand in the also historic Praia da Rocha, one of the most famous in Portugal.
The superb view over the sea and its direct connection to the vast sandy beach that characterises Praia da Rocha, in addition to the luxurious decoration, are some of the characteristics of this hotel unit of the AP Hotels & Resorts Group, located next to the Santa Catarina Fortress, together with the comfort of the rooms and the traditional quality of service.
The old and very intimate connection of the AP Oriental Beach to Praia da Rocha means that it shares a little of the history of a beach that is intertwined with the origin of the tourism industry in Portugal, since the end of the 19th century, when it was already the favourite holiday resort of Portuguese and Spanish families from the Andalusia region, and chosen in winter by English tourists.
With a beach stretching for about 1.5 kilometres, Praia da Rocha, with the Santa Catarina Fortress on one side and the Three Castles Viewpoint on the other, continues to be an ex-libris of Portuguese tourism.
Along its wooden walkway there are bars and restaurants and a sports area, in a constant animation.
Praia da Rocha has all the necessary infrastructures to guarantee safety and comfort.
In the AP Oriental Beach Lobby you will find all the information about the various activities you can enjoy, such as boat trips or excursions, among others.
