“What's not to love?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Came to Albufeira for a weekend of beach, and this is the beach to be at. It borders the old town, so it is also the easiest to get to. I was there on a saturday in July and it was packed, but that is to be expected. It is not your secluded beach, but if you want to be on a great beach in the center of it all this is it. The water was clear, and crisp but give it time and you can just float endlessly. There are sun beds available at numerous points on the beach,or you can buy your own parasol at one of the many stores before the beach (expect to pay 9 euros for a cheap one). There are restaurants bordering the beach, or you can just duck in to the old town as I did grab a coffee/snack and head back. It borders Praia de Peneco (and really together they are one big long beach). At night, I walked it during the sunset, it took 30 minutes 1 way and I had it mostly to myself. There are showers and washrooms near the central plaza bordering the beach (and Peneco has showers and washrooms too by the elevator, which was not working when I went but the stairs worked fine)

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Such a clean beach and well worth a look. It stretches from the rocks enclosing the harbour to the cliffs heading east. Sun beds and shades available to hire and plenty of clean sand to sunbathe on. Wooden walkways for most of the way on the west side.

“Clean, beautiful and golden sands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Lovely little restaurants and bars pack this seaside. Bustling at night and peaceful in the day. Golden sands stretch for miles and although the sea is cold being the atlantic, it is a nice antidote for the summer heat. Watersports and deckchairs available, definitely worth a visit!
