“A little further away from central Albufeira”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

Lovely sandy beach, great for kids, not (quite) as packed as the central Albufeira beaches in the summer. May need transport to get there.

“Soft golden sands & so much to offer”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

This fantastic beach stretches for miles, starting at Galé, through Salgados and ending in Armaçao de Pera, a wonderful walk if you are feeling energetic.
On the Galé side, you will find 3 restaurants and various watersports, including pedalos and banana boats. Beautiful soft golden sands and breathtaking sunsets, it is a very popular beach. Sunbeds and umbrellas can be hired. In summer, there is a fruit seller that sells excellent fruit from her market stall. Parking can also be difficult in July and August but it is well worth a visit.
