Praia dos Salgados
#1 of 4 Nature & Parks in Gale
After a lovelly swim we went on the boardwalk through the nature reserve at the back of the beach Saw variety of birds, dragonflies ad turtles A great day out once past the parking challenges of Algarve beaches.
There is a good size car park that is a little tucked away but ideal if spending the day at the beach as there are decking walkways that lead right down to the beach this is also ideal for wheelchairs or pushchairs.

Praia Gale
#2 of 4 Nature & Parks in Gale
We loved the Praia de Gale as our favourite beach - you can drive (and park all day for free) right up to the beach which is the most divine soft and clean unspoilt sand stretch of miles upon miles - my wife and I...
Wonderful beach for walking with many attractions in the high season plus lots of bars and restaurants but very nice - you can walk from Gale beach to Armacao de Pera alongside sand dunes and past the nature reserve

It's a little walk from the car park with a narrow path but worth it :) I visit every year
A bit off the beaten track but well worth the short walk from the car park.

Lagoa dos Salgados
#3 of 4 Nature & Parks in Gale
This was a wonderfully accessible nature reserve, with the crashing waves and beautiful sandy beaches one side of the sand dunes and the natural salt water lake with board walk and viewing places the other side.
Its like a mini natural park right next to the salgados beach with some micro wild life on it.

The second car park is at the top of the cliffs at Bairro dos Pescadores and is accessed via the outdoor escalator.
There are lots of watersports on offer, highlight for us was the inflatable water park which you swim out to.

Percurso dos Sete Vales Suspensos Lagoa, Portugal 5.7 mi away
#1 of 6 Nature & Parks in Lagoa
You can be in touch with nature, in a peaceful trail with places to rest and huge spots to get your best selfies or photos of the landscape.
Marinha has a car park, but no other facilities (including toilets!) whereas Vale de Centianes has a cafe and is easy to get a taxi from.
Praia da Oura Albufeira, Portugal 4.7 mi away
#10 of 25 Nature & Parks in Albufeira
The reason for that is a steep hill you have to climb to get out of there plus way to the beach is not your typical walk in the park.
Praia da Marinha Caramujeira, Portugal 5.7 mi away
#1 of 1 Nature & Parks in Caramujeira
A brilliantly relaxing quite traditional place one of the best places I've visited due to the nature and friendliness of everyone we met and dealt with great beach good selection of restaurants and the views along...
You can drive and park free in the car park and walk down the many steps.....its worth it as it keeps the crowds away...... or for the more adventurous walk along the coastal path from either Benagil or Albandeira.

If you would like to see the coast and the caves from another perspective and be close to the nature then you definitely have to choose the kayak tour.

Park at the top and walk down through a tunnel in the cliffs and you find the most fantastic beach.
