    Praia da Oura
    A charming beach! We took our infant daughter and we all had a wonderful time. It’s easily accessible, several restaurants above with a view of the ocean, along with some places to overlook. There were quite a few people but plenty of space to lay out. We walked along the beach looking at the different rock formations and the water was very refreshing for an afternoon swim. A scenic beach, would recommend if staying in Albufeira.

    Beautiful beach
    My 3rd time at this resort which is really lovely and not at all rowdy. The beach is very beautiful and very clean with amazing cliffs. There are quite a few restaurant overlooking the sea too with fabulous views. There are a nice amount of restaurants and shops all within walking distance. Albufeira Old Town a short ride away in an Uber - approx 4.50 Euros

    LOVED IT
    We went on a family holiday here and we loved it! The guys who run the water sports hut were so lovely too. So many options from jet skiing, paragliding etc. Good prices too! The beach was so clean and had plenty of food and shop options available too. Would definitely go back every chance i can.

I'm not a beach person and haven't lain the sand for a few years, but this beach did look quite inviting. However, I visited in June and there were very few tourists in the town, so the beach was all but empty. What it is like at the height of the season in a normal year, I cannot say. There are numerous cafés and restaurants around and it is near the town centre.

This place is primarily aimed at groups of young singles, at the centre is The Strip, full of 'rave' type disco bars, however as a more mature visitor and not interested in that side of the resort, our villa was within walking distance yet not affected by the noise or crowds, there are some good restaurants, especially down near the beach, bit of a hill back but worth it. Plenty of coffee places, perhaps too much empathis on 'English Breakfast' basically a fry up, but they cater for the masses and those masses are English youngsters, those that probably haven't been to bed yet alone sobered up fully! The place feels safe, the locals are welcoming.

Praia da Oura (Oura Beach) is pretty much right at the bottom of the strip so it was very busy. It is at the bottom of quite a steep hill. The beach was clean but the sea was rough so quite a bit of seaweed was getting churned up at one end of the beach. There were a few water activities available and a few cafe bars. I couldn't see any public toilets. You can hire sunloungers and parasols but we didn't and just laid on our towels.

Visited with our young family and found the beach to be nice, but too busy for us. Lots of nearby bars attracts a young adult following. Nice atmosphere and great scenery. But the beach was very busy with little room to play when we visited. There is a fairly steep road that takes you down to beach level, but plenty of tuk-tuks about if you can't make the climb... worth a visit if you are staying nearby.

Stayed in the Clube Praia Da Oura in February 2020. Lucky with the weather as it was unbroken sunshine with very warm sunshine. Really glad we chose the area as there was a good mix of shops, restaurants and bars and it was fairly quiet (although almost certainly much busier in summer)

The beach was great, with a lot of good sand, and some pleasant rocky coves at the eastern end of the main beach. Swimming would probably be tricky for all but the strongest swimmers as there are frequent strong waves and a heavy current and undertow, with a number of rocks beneath the waves in places which might catch the unwary. Some good cafes and restaurants right on the seafront, especially the Beach Caffe at the east beyond the rocks and Borda da Agua at the west of the main beach

My parents have a apartment just off the strip next to Vespa rent. I love the area. Some great restaurants and bars close by but not too close that you can hear everything. The beach is not far away with lovely golden sand. It’s a lovely walk to old town Albufeira which takes 30/40 minutes.
Lots to do for all the family

Will be staying here next week, just wondered has anyone stayed here before? It’s a 3 bed 2 bath villa with pool and old fashioned furniture and in a cul de sac about 20 mins from the beach?

Thank you
