Been to this beach many times, I personally think it's one of the best beaches around, plenty of parking but you must be early as it gets very busy, clean beaches, does get busy but who cares, sand, sea and plenty of sun, have been to other beaches further up and down but seem to be packed with all the hotel guests as it is only a short walk from there hotels,

Great beach with restaurants, beach amenities, wonderful sand and warm enough water to get into in shoulder season. Long beach for walking, hiking trails in both directions with other restaurants for taking a break.

Best beach we visited during our stay in Albufeira, huge, beautiful yellow sand, not too busy at least during the time we stayed, good facilities as it has nice bars and restaurants and best one is definitely Pedras Ameralas, we absolutely loved it

Nice beach with fairly calm seas. We noted it was mainly Portuguese holiday makers and local holiday home owners, much like the area of Gale overall. Water sports available and several areas of sun beds available for hire, €20 for two with the umbrella. You do get the odd beach seller but no hassle. 3 beach restaurants sit behind the beach, the middle of the three being the most fairly priced. Fantastic free fish available at all three.

I visited this beach as staying close by, very popular but big enough to accommodate the masses. Problem with walking down to the beach from car park - although it is only a short walk I have poor mobility so it was very tricky, anyone with difficulty walking on slopes beware.

Great beach but full of people.

Walking to the left, away from the crowds, was very nice - people trying to catch crabs in the rockpools etc. and just wandering around, like us.

We got the shuttle bus from the hotel at about 09.15 to take us there, but the return journey was at around 16.00, so after spending some time in the bar that was open at that time we had to call a local cab to get back to the hotel.

The bar on the corner is cool, as you can have a drink and enjoy some cool views, while other people sweat or hide under their umbrellas ;-)

The taxi was cheap and the driver was very nice, chatty and spoke good English and Spanish.

Like most beaches, in my opinion, it's good for a couple of hours

Enjoyed swimming sun bathing in the At!antic Ocean, nice combination of very cold water and not sun. Clean and close to the shops.
