“Nice beach with caves”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

This is another lovely beach for families with young children. Huge rock formations are there which give protection from wind. There is a beautiful & stylish cafe on the beach. Toilet facilities are there and plenty of parking available. Sand is golden & soft.

“Brilliant Beach...a great day out!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Spend a relaxing day at Praia Gale; a superb beach which a handful of excellent restaurants/bars serving great seafood.

When you arrive at Gale, the beaches to the right are busier (more mainstream) but better for swimming...the beaches to the left are nestled in and around weather beaten rocks and small caves, but you can discover your own little private bathing area relatively easily, although the sea around this area is not as good for swimming as it's rocky in places.

Suitable for children too.

Nevertheless a great day out and well worth the trip!!
