Not faraway of Albufeira you will find wonderful beaches, Praia Gale is a long beach with fine sand, superb views, wonderful agaves cactus, and overall no many people; for excellent moments on a beach.

Very long stretch of sandy beach with rocky formations- stanning to look at, very clean, easy access, water was obviously cold in April but still great to walk along the beach collecting shells etc. Definitely worth visiting

Very clean, lovely golden sand. Not too crowded. Hardly any seaweed. Very good for children to play on the sand. I did see a couple of dogs, in my opinion dogs should be banned hence I have given this a 4 star not 5.

It's normal to this time of the year (April) to be windy and the water is sooo cold, the beach is nice, it's clean and there is a restaurant in the beach where you can find food and drinks (with or without alcohol). You can rent an awning with beach chair for 13€

Amazing views, brilliantly clean, good restaurants near by. When we went it was very quiet and it feel like we had the beach to ourselves, rocks for the children to climb on and the waves are quite strong but the sound of them crashing on to the beach is fantastic.

Sandy beach, nice shells, great views, good to suntan and chill in peace and quiet apart from the sound of ocean.
