“'O' Monte apartments, Galé”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

Apartments arranged in a U-shape overlooking a large pool. Ideal for a quiet holiday in March or September. Nearby beach at Praia da Galé has beautiful clean soft sand and three beach bars with some water sports in the high season. Well worth a visit and sun beds can be hired

“Do not miss this beach!”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

One of the nicest beaches I have been on. Lovely soft sand and gentle slope into the sea, although the sea can have a pretty strong pull when going out. There are plenty of shells to collect in the long stretch from Praia Gale to Armacao de Pera. It is clean and pretty, especially in the evening when the sun sets.

At the Gale end, as already mentioned, there are 3 restaurants, each opening early in the morning serving breakfast and open til late in the evening.

As a tip, take the path behind the Restaurant Praia Da Gale, which leads to a boadwalk after about 500m. This boadwalk takes you to several drop off points on the beach as well as to the complex in Salgado. If you take this boadwalk, you get to go one third of the way to Armacao de Pera on wood rather than sand.

“What a beach”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

This must be one of the longest beaches I have seen in the area although it is a little out of the way and not massively catered for food wise it is well worth a trip

“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.
