MAY 4, SATURDAY: PORTIMAO, PORTUGAL (8:00AM / 6:00PM)
Day_1_2019 IBERIAN PENINSULA GOLF CRUISE

Portimão is located in the District of Faro in the Algarve Region of Portugal and is the host venue for many prestigious sailing events. The Lisbon to Dakar Rally passes through, and there is also surfing and kitesurfing. This is a great place for seafood restaurants with grilled sardines being the specialty. Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Shore Excursions®.

GOLF: The Faldo Course at Amendoeira, designed by Sir Nick Faldo, opened for play in 2008. In a modern twist of a traditional recipe, cacti and wild herbs replace the role of Sunningdale's heather, and spartan holm oaks and ancient olive trees take the place of a lush English woodland, and desert scrub bunkers of crushed limestone replace Berkshire's sandy tracts in a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play. It also enjoys great views, in particular on the back nine.

MAY 5, SUNDAY: GIBRALTAR, UNITED KINGDOM (9:00AM / 10:00PM)
Day_2_2019 IBERIAN PENINSULA GOLF CRUISE

"The Rock" of Gibraltar is a sight to behold rising nearly 1,400 feet out of nowhere located in a strategic position at the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula. It overlooks the Straits of Gibraltar and is linked to Spain by a narrow isthmus. Most of the upper Rock, starting just above the town, is a nature reserve with spectacular views accessible by cable car. Gibraltar is imposing but small. It measures less than six square kilometres and is inhabited by around 30,000 people made up of Gibraltarians, British, Moroccans, Indians and Spanish. There is a colony of the famous, camera-hogging Barbary apes who run free in a semi-wild state. Gibraltar is a British self-governing colony and a member of the European Union by virtue of Britain's membership.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Shore Excursions®.

GOLF: La Reserva was designed by acclaimed golf course architect Cabell B. Robinson and is carved into the hillside with stunning vistas down to the Mediterranean Sea and up to the Andalusian hills. Opened in 2003, its wide, sweeping fairways lead on to large greens with gentle but challenging undulations. It has fast become a must-play for any golfer visiting southern Spain and is a fitting next chapter in Sotogrande's proud golfing legacy.

Overnight: At Sea

MAY 6, MONDAY: MALAGA, SPAIN (7:30AM / 6:00PM)
Day_3_2019 IBERIAN PENINSULA GOLF CRUISE

Malaga is found on Spain's famous Costa del Sol along with its coastal and inland neighbors Rincon de la Victoria, Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Alhaurin de la Torre, Mijas and Marbella. The important cultural infrastructure and the rich artistic heritage have culminated in the nomination of Malaga as a candidate for the 2016 European Capital of Culture. The internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso and actor Antonio Banderas were both born in Malaga.

Enjoy it on your own or or via Azamara Shore Excursions®.

GOLF: Finca Cortesin is ranked as one of Spain's finest golf courses by Golf Digest Magazine. Cabell B. Robinson's design beautifully complements the natural landscape. It provides a perfect balance between 20 varieties of flora, the typical Mediterranean forest and the perfectly manicured bermuda grasses of the golf course. Finca Cortesin played host to the prestigious Volvo World Match Play Championship for 3 years, with many of the world's finest professional competing.

Overnight - At Sea

MAY 7, TUESDAY: VALENCIA, SPAIN (6:00PM / IN PORT)
Day_4_2019 IBERIAN PENINSULA GOLF CRUISE

Valencia has come a very long way since 138 BC when it was founded as a Roman colony. Today it is Spain's third largest city after Madrid and Barcelona. It has one of the world's most prosperous local economies. The story you'll probably take home however is about one of the most striking ranges of architecture imaginable. Of course, you'll find antiquity in many forms such as Valencia's Gothic cathedral which was built over a mosque after the Christian reconquest of 1238. You will also find the space-age City of Arts and Sciences, a massive project by neofuturistic architect Santiago Calatrava (World Trade Centre Transportation Hub) whose showpiece is Oceanographic - one of the world's biggest aquariums, with polar zones, underwater tunnels and an underwater restaurant. The juxtaposition is startling. And you'll have two full days to immerse yourself in it!

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Shore Excursions®.

Overnight: In Port - Valencia, Spain

MAY 8, WEDNESDAY: VALENCIA, SPAIN (IN PORT / 6:00PM)
Day_5_2019 IBERIAN PENINSULA GOLF CRUISE

Enjoy a full day in beautiful Valencia.

GOLF: El Saler Golf Club is located on the outskirts of Valencia within the Albufera Nature Park. Designed by Javier Arana, one of the most prestigious Spanish designers and opened in 1968, it sits nearby the beach occupying terrain dotted with pine trees and sand dunes and has a distinctly "links" feel. It's famous "cats' claw" (not dissimilar to the Monterey Peninsula's "iceplant") is certainly to be avoided in the rough.

Overnight - At Sea

MAY 9, THURSDAY: PALMA DE MAJORCA, SPAIN (7:30AM / 10:00PM)
Day_6_2019 IBERIAN PENINSULA GOLF CRUISE

The original city of Palma dates back to Roman times; modern day residents of the old quarter are still digging up artifacts in their gardens. Balanced on a seawall above the marina is the amazing gothic Cathedral, icon of the city, with some of the world's largest stained-glass windows. Also high on the artistic scale is the Museum of Contemporary Spanish Art featuring works by masters including Picasso, Miró, Gris, and Dali. Mother Nature's aesthetic achievements can be found in the Caves of Drach-mystical caverns where the play of shadow and light on the rock formations stimulates the imagination.

GOLF: Son Gual has been lauded since it opened in 2007. The Thomas Himmel designed layout is considered the finest of the Balearic Islands and is one of the most talked about venues in southern Europe, with the European Golf & Travel Media Association naming it as 'The Discovery of 2010'. Son Gual enjoys a lovely location, peppered with mature olive trees and wild flowers, with its design and conditioning being of the very highest standard.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Shore Excursions®.

Overnight: At Sea

MAY 10, FRIDAY: MAHON, MENORCA, SPAIN (8:00AM / 6:00PM)
Day_7_2019 IBERIAN PENINSULA GOLF CRUISE

Your arrival by ship is fortuitous as Mahon is most striking when approached by sea, perched atop a cliff overlooking the natural harbor. Shops cluster along streets between two plazas, one large and lined with cafés and restaurants, the other tranquil, and site of the Church of Santa Maria, known for a celebrated organ with four keyboards and more than 3,000 pipes; and Carmen, a convent whose cloisters now house the municipal market.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Shore Excursions®.
