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!

Theres so much happening on this wee bit of beach, but it's just so lovely to be able to lie there and relax, soaking up the sun and joy of those going out on the boats etc. Swimming is wonderful in the sea and there are plenty cold drinks sellers coming by regularly if you can't face walking to the...

Praia dos Pescadores is a lovely long beach which is only a stones throw around from Albufeira's Old Town. It can get quite crowded in high season but is generally spacious enough to feel comfortable. The shore is full of shell segments which can be quite hard to walk on and the sea's can be choppy at times (same in... More

Unfortunately, too many boats close to shore pollute the water quality of this beautiful beach not to mention the noise they make

A lot of smal restaurants and shops, prices are not to high for the good standard of dining and drinks. They are tending to dragg you into therePlace, but perhaps later on the season it will be less. At the beach in the corner, we've found one of the best restaurants of Albufeira. A-Ruina, is with four flours up a... More
