Vilamoura is quite wheelchair friendly, with ramps for beach as well as the Marina areas.

Some of the accessible hotels near the accessible Marina / beach:

Dom Pedro Golf

Tivoli Marina

Crown Plaza

Vila Gale Marina

Lake Resort

There are beach buggies and adapted sun loungers. There's also a tourist train which goes around Vilamoura. It's wheelchair accessible.
