Beaches

Hi,

I just wondered if anybody could help. We are thinking of visiting Portugal next year but my husband likes white soft sand beaches. Does anybody know if any beaches in Portugal are like this.

Many Thanks

Julia

They are sandy, but not white, more golden. All over our big Atlantic coast.

The lightest color beaches can be found in the south, the Algarve, on the islands in the Ria Formosa lagune. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfez58MkDa8

Not the white beaches like in the tropics.

There is a small section of the Falesia beach near Vilamoura with white sand, but it is a very small section.

But all the beaches down here in the Algarve are yellow sand.
