“The closest beach from our hotel - and the best”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We liked the long walks along the clean and well kept beach. There were several groups of sunbeds to choose from.

“Fabulous beach”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Quiet and relaxed with lots of nearby restaurants and facilities. They are carrying out work at the moment like refurbishing the pier but its sheltered by cliffs and has the sun on it all day

“Lovely large beach”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Praia dos Pescadores or the Fisherman's beach is a lovely beach in front of Albufeira old town. There is a car park at the top of the cliffs and an escalator down to beach level. At the bottom of the escalators is a square, which used to be the old harbour, and is often used for open air concerts and other entertainment. The tourist train also stops at the top of the cliffs and opposite escalator. In peak season the tourist train runs every 15mins and right up until the wee hours of the morning. There are lovely views from the cliff tops right across the beach and Albufeira old town. The beach is the middle of three connected beaches that stretches for over a mile. The beach is lovely with beautiful golden brown sand and we have always found the beach very clean and tidy. For a few Euros you can hire loungers and umbrella’s. After you leave the beach there are large toilets and washing facilities just to the rear of the beach. Being in front of Albufeira old town, gives you access to a huge wealth of restaurants, bars and shops. Visit here any time of day and you’ll see someone sculpting amazing sand sculptures. Our favourite time of day to visit is the evening, watch the sun set from the cliffs and a let the boys play on the sand when it’s not so hot before going for a meal in one of the local restaurants.

“Not a bad little beach.”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

For a beach that was only just off the busy town, it seemed well maintained. The sand was a little bit grainy and I wouldn't want to spend all day on it but with the backdrop of Albufeira, it is quite pretty.

There are quite a few people doing sand carvings which are really nice and there are LOADS of restaurants in the area. So overall, very good!
