Kids loved our visit here. The waves were really strong crashing against the rocks so the kids main fun was running away from them before they hit, while we keep a close eye on them to ensure they were safe. We were only sorry we had to leave after a short visit due to rain.

The long beach in combination with the small cozy beach, restaurant and since 3 years the nice Lounge at Pedros Amarelas is for me the best spot in the Algarve.

We visited Praia da gale after a Portuguese friend told us about this beach. We are so glad we went as this beach is absolutely amazing. It was such a shame as it was a cloudy day with a few drizzles of rain but nothing stopped us sitting on this lovely beach. The sand is so clear not a shell in site it was a wonderful to walk on. The sea was so refreshing. The whole beach is immaculate. We visited one of the restaurants ordering the piri piri it was lovely and looking out onto the beach you couldn't get a better place to eat. The staff were very helpful ringing us a cab to take us back into the old town. Next time we are back in Albufeira we will be heading straight back to this outstanding peaceful beach

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.

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!!
