I walk this beach regularly the whole stretch to the entrance of the harbour to Alvor. The beach is 3.2 miles long and not rammed even at high season.

This is a huge beach, not far from the marina and the endless space is so relaxing and full of possibilities. We swam in the freezing Atlantic and warmed up on the very cheap loungers. Lovely place.

Sun beds 5 € for a full lazy day in the warm sun. Wide and sandy so you never feel that its too packed.
