A long sandy beach

Probably the most extensive sand beach around Albufeira. It's possible to rent a water bike and other water amusements.

We cycled here from old town albuferia which was quite easy, maybe 4 or 5 km, it is harder to get parking if coming with a car. The beach was quite long with really nice rock and cliff formations, it wasnt busy and this was one of the main reasons we stayed there

At the end of a sunny day at the beach, relaxed with cold drinks and listened to live music by two musicians on guitar and double bass whilst looking out over the sea - nothing better!

We've tried other beaches but keep coming back. It has something for everyone, rock pool, rock climbing, beautiful beaches and coves, cool bar and restaurant. Our children love it - the perfect place to keep the kids happy and watch the amazing sunset.

Very large family beach with clean sea. Great for those that wish to just relax without much scenery.

Very misty the day we went, but still a nice long beach with plenty of sun loungers to hire. Lifeguards on duty and a couple of restaurants at the edge of the beach aswell as a clothing stall and fruit stall. Parking looked to be a problem but we went by taxi and made sure to get a phone number... More
