“Great Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Great beach, one of the best i visited. It was great for all the family from the children to the grandparents. The restaurants/bars which over looked the beach were brilliant too. The sand was clean and stretches for miles. This beach is deffinetly worth the visit.

“Best Beach on the Algarve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

My favourite beach with usually some good surf to mees around in. Sand stretches for miles although at the Gale end there is a cove which is a bit sheltered. Three good beach bars that over the years have gone from shacks to proper restuarants serve the beach.

“Beatiful Rocky beach with interesting little coves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

I like the fact that there are a few really good restaurants on this beach overlooking it and one side of the beach is really rocky for the adventurous and the other side nice a flat for slow walks

“Fantastic environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This place has long been a favourite of mine. Lived there a few years back and loved everything about it. You can walk from Gale beach to Amerçao de Pera pure white sand all the way, beautiful plus the cliffs have an eco environment.
