One of our favourite beaches on the Algarve, large, easy parking, love the spring high tide, which creates warm lagoons at the top of the beach...water tends to be cold, as it is way out west, friendly lifeguards, sun umbrellas and beds available at 10...More

Salema beach and village sublime, Corsarios snack bar has by far the best, buzziest and cheapest food and drink. Best sangria, best peri-peri, best prawns, best hosts. You can't miss it, it has more patrons than anyone else

Very little new development beautiful beach and great character . This end of the Algarve offers far better value than the Villamoura overbuilt and overpriced Eastern section closest to the airport along with a few very good golf courses

Roughly 30 miles I'd say but you can probably get a more accurate distance on google.
