Great expansive beach, once you tackle the steps down from the hotel or public access route. Fantastic for long walks in the soft white sands and shallow waters.

Clean water and sand over the beach and for miles and miles. If you are feeling relaxed and calm after watching this photo will signify your need to go there some day. Nice apartments, hotels near by. Beach is calm not crowded. If you want fun all night long, Albufeira is 15km away.

Another beautiful beach in the Algarve, well worth all the steps up and down to get there! These beautifully coloured cliffs are best witnessed at sunset, where they glow orange and make for the perfect evening stroll!

We've visited Vilamoura a number of times but this is the first time we have visited this beach as we usually go to one behind the Tivoli hotel. This beach is amazing.

quite but a lovely beach and some lovely bars. Away from the main albuferia scene but can get a bus or taxi there. Some of the best hotels are in this area but to far out for me

Falesia is a beautiful beach that is well maintained and clean. Lots of space so you wont be on top of other people when you arrive. Washrooms are available, lots of beach bars to enjoy free WiFi, and expensive mixed drinks.

Our little girl was absolutely in awe. Albufeira is a beautiful location, quiet, calm warm with just about the right amount of things to do... More
