VEry long clean beach - great at this time of year (March) as it was quiet - I think it would be dreadful during the summer peak months. Very clean sand though with lots of broken shells.

This is a very good beach in the old town of albufeira. Close to many great restaurants with fabulous sea views. Only disappointment was the lift on the beach is no more so be prepared for about 6 flights of stairs to get to top of the cliff

Located down by the Fisherman's Village, this is a large beach, with lots of shopping and restaurants close by. A must see.

Of course there are advantages; it is easily accessible from the Old Town - there is even an escalator down to... More

We stopped here whilst exploring the area. We walked down to the beach at the far Western end and made our way to the escalators at the East end. Lots of shells if you collect them. We then walked up to town and explored it. Lots of neat little shops, and in February few other tourists. We spent the best... More

Nice beach but can be difficult to walk due to sharp crushed shells. Plenty of sun beds and umbrellas but only a few in use this week. Easy to walk from Solemar hotel round to square near escalators are as this is where you can find some each facing restaurants.
