“Nice...but there are nicer beaches around.”

Praia dos Pescadores is a lovely long beach which is only a stones throw around from Albufeira's Old Town. It can get quite crowded in high season but is generally spacious enough to feel comfortable. The shore is full of shell segments which can be quite hard to walk on and the sea's can be choppy at times (same in all areas of the Algarve) so keep an eye on your children.

Perfect beach if you don't fancy venturing away from Albufeira but there are nicer beaches to be seen in the area including Gale, Oura, Aveiros and Olhos de Agua.

Unfortunately, too many boats close to shore pollute the water quality of this beautiful beach not to mention the noise they make

A lot of smal restaurants and shops, prices are not to high for the good standard of dining and drinks.
They are tending to dragg you into therePlace, but perhaps later on the season it will be less.
At the beach in the corner, we've found one of the best restaurants of Albufeira. A-Ruina, is with four flours up a very pleasant and good place , also just to sit and drink a coffee, or water, or good food and wine. No one is trying to rush you there.... Very pleasant and nice servants.

lovely beach but difficult to get in too sea because of it being a very shelly beach. would suggest sea sandals especially for children.
