Nice beach, very warm, but overrun with tourists. I'd recommend visiting at least once, but more than that maybe frustrating...

The beach is within 500 m to Albufeira old town where you can find many good restaurants and pubs. Very nice beach even when it is crowded. There is an escalator and elevator to get to the beach for people coming from the top hill of Albufeira old town. Drinks and doughnuts (bolinha) are sold on the beach.

Lovely beach. Lots of watersports. Very close to cafes, shops, bars and restaurants. It gets very busy at high season, so get there early!

This is one of most traditional beaches in Albufeira, along side with Inatel. It reminds us of old fishermen ("pescadores") Albufeira, as I remember from my summer holidays a long time ago, when I was a child. Today it is too small for all the people attending that beach, but recent remediation of accesses and walking path, made it more beautiful.

lovely wide expansive beach in Albufeira. Due to it's location this beach can get rather busy, but I would say never crowded. There are plenty of water sports on this beach, but rather expensive. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available but also expensive. There are plenty of bars and restaurants just behind the beach, and a few ice cream/bars on it. There is a escalator to the beach at one end, and a lift at the other.
