Praia do Salgado
Praia do Salgado beach is found to the west of Albufeira, the beach is situated between Nazare and Sao Martinho do Porto. This beach is perfect for surfing and has the presence of lifeguards and beach assistance during the summer. It also serves as a great spot for ultra-lights and paragliding fans.
Praia do Peneco
Praia do Peneco beach is located at the city centre. The thing I find quite usual about the beach is the presence of a tunnel connecting the city to the beach. A lovely promenade can be found at the western end of the beach which makes it ideal for taking a walk in the evening and also allowing you to enjoy to the fullest the nightlife the city has to offer as there are abundant restaurants and bars available that are always ready to serve. With some excellent holiday apartments in Albufeira nearby.
Situated between the east of Albufeira and the west of Vilamoura is the Praia Falesia. The beach is about 6 km long consisting of lovely red cliffs that provide a magnificent view which stretches the length of the beach. Although these cliffs are not very tall, they allow for convenient access to the beaches and provide an adequate barrier to excess winds that might originate from the north during the offseason.
Praia dos Arrifes
Located close to Sesmarias village resort found in the Albufeira, Praia dos Arrifes is about 3.9Km off the west of the old the city centre. To gain access to the sands of the beach, you have to have to make your way through the old wooden steps from the parking lot. This makes access to the beach a lot tedious for people with disability. Praia dos Arrifes also has standard blue flag EU accreditation.
