Sorry Praia do Oura, but I really did not like you at all. Very commercial, lots of tacky bars and cheap shops, no Portuguese charm whatsoever. Visited for a meal but won't be coming back I'm afraid. Ever.

We were very close to The Strip - a lot of choice of bars and restaurants - bit daunting - staff from all restaurants were plying for trade - reminded me a little bit of once going to Tenerife where they kept selling timeshares

Beach itself was nice and OK, the restaurant on the beach was nice.
Beach bed/chair and sun umbrella rental prices were a bit expensive on my opinion - as were in all the beaches in whole Albufeira area.

The first time we visited this beach we didn't like it as it was completely overcrowded but the next day we took a walk along once the tide had gone out and we couldn't believe that just past the cliffs are beautiful sandy beaches that are quiet and private - stunning views.

although small a lovely stretch of beach, cheap drinks and food, plenty of bars, a bit offputting at night
