At the very end of the Seasmarais/ Gale road west of Albufeira, the pristine Praia Gale stretches for kilometres westwards to Armacao De Pera. At the eastern end, the winter sunsets are magnificient, drawing tourists and locals every evening. Two excellent restaurants adjoin the small parking lot and remain open into the early evening. A few hundred metres back from... More

Been coming to the Algarve for 25 years plus and have visited the Grande Beach right next to this one. Missed this absolute gem of a beach. It's not your typical small cove Algarve beach, it has wide open sands and stunning views, but it also has the typical algarvian rock formations and tidal erosion. It's beautiful with a number...

I really enjoyed walking beside this beach. It's even better because it was winter and we weren't looking for a place to set stall and go swimming. While it was vey windy, the curvy and "mountainous" trails made it very fun. Plus you also get great views of the ocean and is you want to search for a "private" beach... More

We have been coming to the Algarve for nearly 30 years and the beaches must rate amongst the best in the world and we have travelled far and wide This beach is great you can walk for miles and rest several times en route at the numerous beach bars

We visited here in November so there wasn't much to do but walk and enjoy the views, sunshine and peace. There were still a couple of cafes open near the village end and there is plenty of parking to allow easy access plus there are nice wooden walk ways to certain sections of the beach. It might be bit busier... More

Great walk way over to it from the hotel, clean sands and clear ocean with great views of cliffs. Not overly busy and really safe and clean for children

Today is December 1,2015 as I sit on my iPad enjoying myself vacationing via photos of Gale. Ten years ago come February 2016 we were here on our honeymoon. Going through the photos on line of Gale is so humbling; how we miss it so! It was wonderful to reminisce on the views of many photos. The beach, rocks, friendly... More

One of the best beaches I enjoyed so far, maybe because we like surfing but ot only. gorgeouse place for children and adults with all the facilities you need. We loved the big space most of all and scenery whcih is reachly decorated by the rocks. A few restaurants will make you comfort even better. Love this place
