This beach was 3mins away from our hotel. We spent our spare time everyday here. Weather was warm. My partner spent his time sun bathing. My son and I spent our times exploring the rock formations and dipping our toes by the water

Gale beach is the most stunning on the area and I have been to most of them in the algarve! Recently went this week and it was nearly empty being out of season but the sea perfectly warm enough to swim in!

There is a Gale east and west. Galé west has a small parking area and not many steps down to the beach. Rock formations here are smoother that some of the other beaches.
