Hotel Baltum is in one of the few flat areas, 100 metres from the beach right in the old town.

although some of the areas are a couple of miles from the old town they may be suitable although access to the beach is down a very steep hill.

Albufeira is not the best option for someone with walking difficulties I'm afraid.

Anyone with walking difficulties would be better off somewhere like Vilamoura where it is flat.

Hi,

Edificio albufeira apartments at bottom of escalators are handy to everything. Basic but clean and right on the beach.

I would be looking at somewhere like Torremolinos and Pez Espada is a great hotel. In between the marina and the headland past La Carihuela and all flat along the sea front.

Lovely long beach and plenty to do.

Not the Algarve though!

Would concur with vilamoura as around the main centre and marina is flat and there are also ramps next to the few steps in areas down to the marina
