Be aware the dirt parking lot at the bottom the hill is closed for the foreseeable future. The locals don't know how long it will be closed. There is very very limited parking at the beach.

Physically the beach is nice. No public bathrooms. This is a nude beach so beware. Older people were taking their clothes off in front of the Baio restaurant on the beach. They rent the chairs and tables on the beach and right when you are eating your lunch, there’s Omma and Oppa buck naked. So gross . There are no signs indicating it’s a nude beach and Rick Steves articles did not mention it so we understood it was NOT a nude beach.It’s unnerving and shocking to see 75 year old people naked if you aren’t expecting it. Just saying. Dogs are on the beach and most people don’t clean up after their dogs so beware.

Nice beach with some restaurants and lots of parking. Also some shops selling plastic tut. Watch out for the portion of the beach between the two-toned red and yellow flags where the fat slugs in the daybeds object to other beach users setting up lest their view of the sea is disrupted. Policed by a lifeguard whose time would surely be better spent looking out for swimmers' safety than the interests of an entitled minority.

This is a hidden gem for sure. Beautiful beach in the South of Portugal. Very small town perfect for a relaxing, lazy beach vacation.

The place I will be reviewing is Salema Portugal. I visited there three weeks ago I thought it was perfect.

Salema is a place on the beach where you can do anything you want to. One of my favourite thing to do was play tennis with my family, we did an hour which I would recommend but you can do two hours and much more. As soon as you look out of the window you can see the Ocean crashing against the soft golden sand. If your on the beach the cool breeze feels so relaxing as you lay on the beach towels. One of my favourite things to do was play bat and ball in the sand with my sister. Just off the beach was a mimi market we’re we got buggy boards.

The thing I enjoyed the most was when we went to a water park. It was a hour drive. There was plenty to do there my favourite slide was kamikaze it is we’re you lie on your back and go down on a bumpy slide. The water park we went to was slide and splash.

If you were thinking of going to Salema I would be first to recommend it. There is something for everyone even if it is snatching a bite at the restaurant or playing bat and ball on the beach, or if your a pool person there is everything. I would rate it 5 stars. Truly perfect.

We’ve always loved coming to this beautiful beach, my husband’s family have been coming for 35+ years . The lovely beaches, breezy climate and friendly people are what made us come back. Unfortunately, what used to be one of
Few remaining family friendly authentic holiday destinations, is now heading towards being just like other money making mass tourism places. Beach bar & staff at beach are unwelcoming to families with kids. Very formal beach restaurant & unfriendly staff. Families are told to leave when sat too closely to paid area because the staff don’t want baby tents spoiling the view of customers that reserved beds but aren’t there yet , in case people that reserved turn up

Beautiful sandy beach, wonderfully blue sea, easy to access restaurants and public loos.

This is a lovely beach, easily accessible from the village or via steps from a car park.

The downside was that dogs are allowed to freely roam, which isn’t the case for the main Summer season in England, and there were quite a few of them, despite all the young children.

It was also lovely in the evening to stroll along.

Quite busy and quite exposed, windy to the east end of the beach. Parking in summer is far from the beach. But nice clean water and atmosphere family friendly
