Me and Becky love this cute little working beach with its many beach front eateries and bars. The beach is golden with the sea sparkling in the sun. Plenty of free parking and none of the establishments charging extortionate tourist prices

Lovely beach, shame both sets of sunbeds are located close to restaurants, which is good for getting lunch and drinks but bad for the smell of frying fish the whole time spent sunbathing. Can get very busy, but Salema is such a lovely village with...More

Salema is a small fishing village with about 5 restaurants and the most beautiful beach ever. Atlantico restaurant is our favourite restaurant. Over looking the beautiful beach. You can spend hours watching the fisherman come in with their catch. It's a lovely place to visit

Lively enough but not too busy. Restaurants and mini markets for drinks and ice creams close by. Shelves gradually so great for children. Lifeguards at both ends. Stunningly pretty.

The beach is amazing and not crowded. The water is a little bit cold of course but so clean. Also the sand is clean and nice. You can rent chairs but it's not necessary in my opinion. Just bring an umbrella, that's enough. The only...More

We had a boat trip along the coast and spent time on this clean, sandy beach. Very quiet and good for families.
