part of beach had shells put down to stop erosion but not rough by any means, most beaches at this time of year are only used to stroll along anyway

Sand is not rough in the slightest. Not at Praia oura or Fishermans Beach anyway. Presume its for kids sandcastles ? if so its good stuff

Catsan litter? That's good quality stuff. Nothing like the sand in Albufeira though.

Are you wanting to fill your case and bring the sand back as cat litter?

This maybe the new 'baccy run' now that prices have gone up!

Seriously though, the sand/beach is OK - I love Oura beach, though not the best sand in the Algarve. Praia Verde in the east is far, far better for fine sand.............probably no good as cat litter though! Sorry.

Clean, soft golden sands and more blue flag beaches than anywhere else in Europe - that's quality.

We could give our cat a litter tray the size of the sahara desert and she'd still 'you know what' out the box!

Slightly off topic I know.
