We visited this beach on one of our days in Albufeira. Looking down it appeared absolutely packed with people but once on the beach there was plenty of space. Sunbeds could be hired and there were activities such as jet ski, parascending etc if you wanted to be adventurous. The best part is the wild Atlantic Ocean waves. They were... More

In the city, close to everything, looooong, wiiiide, with great soft yellow sand, with all the amenities necessary. Very nice! You can choose from official beds and umbrellas (15 Eur for two persons) or your own umbrella or no umbrella. Water sports are available, elevator, stairs, showers, toilets, restaurants, coffee shops....everything! If only the water was warmer:(

The local beach in Albufeira is great. It has nice white sands and beautiful warm waters. The town is located adjacent so there is everything you could want.

Came to Albufeira for a weekend of beach, and this is the beach to be at. It borders the old town, so it is also the easiest to get to. I was there on a saturday in July and it was packed, but that is to be expected. It is not your secluded beach, but if you want to be... More

Such a clean beach and well worth a look. It stretches from the rocks enclosing the harbour to the cliffs heading east. Sun beds and shades available to hire and plenty of clean sand to sunbathe on. Wooden walkways for most of the way on the west side.

Lovely little restaurants and bars pack this seaside. Bustling at night and peaceful in the day. Golden sands stretch for miles and although the sea is cold being the atlantic, it is a nice antidote for the summer heat. Watersports and deckchairs available, definitely worth a visit!
