Sand, sea, sand, sea. It’s just one long beautiful beach. The multicoloured cliffs, unfortunately being eroded away with? If you like to beach walk then you will be in your element.

We have been to several beaches and I don’t even know how to describe my experience. The Portugal beaches are some of the best I have ever been at for beauty, beware though this is the Atlantic, don’t expect warm water!

Im not a great on for the beach but this was fantastic, big wide clean beach with lovely views and the most wonderful coast. You can walk right up to Albufeira main town, it's quite far but highly enjoyable. If you get a good day...More

Praia do Barranco das Belharucas in Albufeira Portugal is a long sandy clean algarve beach. Great for walking, picnics or swimming.

Visited this beach with family and friends. Beautiful and clean beach. There is also a small bar where you can buy ice creams or drinks. Lovely view from above as you can also hike. One of the greatest beach around the area.

This beach which is accessible from the hotel Pine Cliff but also from a public side offers an extraordinary beauty. It has pine trees on its back and the cliffs are really amazing.

It is hard to drive and find a place for your car! But you must try this beach even if you go by foot! Go to your right to avoid any wind... and you'll be on paradise.

One of the nicest beaches I have ever experienced. Miles of clean sand and the fresh Atlantic sea. Always a nice breeze here too. Highly recommended.

Get away from the pool and enjoy this wonderful CLEAN beach. Nice walk over the sand dunes, with sunbeds, small beach side bars and restaurants.

You are right above it on the cliff top. Walk along the road that runs to the cliff and there's a small car park and then some steps to the beach. Belharucus becomes Praia de Falesia and then changes its name agin 4 more... More
