Small beach with a few clifs, also not crowded like the most beaches in Albufeira. Lifeguards present and a few typical restaurants around that you can eat good and real food without spend much. Nice spots for fishing specially on the clifs, there are a couple of activities to do with family. Also great to sunbeding and chill, this beach... More

By far, the best beach I've been to! One of the Algarve's smaller beaches but one of the most beautiful, make sure you wander up to the top of the cliffs lined with pine trees for amazing views of the Mediterranean sea, and catch the sunset too :)

Very clean and family friendly. Lifeguards present.Costly sun beds though , 20 euros for two sun beds and an umbrella. If staying a while and intend going to the beach, worthwhile taking your own umbrella

Nice little quiet place to relax, taxi to vilamora 14 euros taxi to albuferia 12 euros. Very busy beach, nice places to eat but limited and all the same menus. Service slow in most the restaurants and the staff automatically bring you olives, bread and pate then add on to your bill!

I have been to a hotel around that area balia which is down the road from alhos de agua. A few years ago was very quite but has now built up quite a bit with bars, shops, resturants and it does have its own beach

It seemed like a little hidden from tourist spot, such a lovely little place away from the main part of touristy albufeira, you will find mostly portuguese holiday makers around these parts, the beach is lovely and quiet.

Lovely beach, especially if you walk around to the other beaches after noon. Much nicer than Albufeira beach.

Gorgeous little area approx 5km from Albufeira Old Town, very quiet, with a gorgeous beach and lots of lovely eateries and gift shops. Our favourite places were Pickwicks Tavern and Acqeas. The Sardine Festival was on at the time we were there, live bands playing, and you could purchase grilled sardines, potatoes and salad and a drink for €7.50, or... More
