August is considered high summer – with very high temperatures and a lot of tourism all over Europe. This year, due to the pandemic, people have been more contained and many have decided to postpone their holidays to less busy times. But for those who still want to enjoy the warmer sea water and high temperatures, we have separated 5 beaches in the Algarve to visit in September. 

As summer only officially ends in September, and southern Portugal is known for having warmer temperatures – compared to the rest of the country – in all seasons, enjoying the Algarve coast is an excellent option for those who have postponed their holidays but still want to savour the sun and the sea. With extensive sand and crystal clear waters, the beauties of the southern beaches are endless. With paradisiacal landscapes, enjoying this region is an excellent option. So, see our suggestions:

1- Ponta da Piedade – Lagos Islands

Probably one of the best known beaches, Ponta da Piedade was once considered one of the most beautiful in the world. And not for nothing. Its coast and the view from the top of the cliff deserve the title. With a unique natural setting that has rocky pillars, natural tunnels and hidden caves, it enchants those who pass by.

2 – Benagil Beach – Carvoeiro

One of the 5 beaches in the Algarve ideal to go to in September is Benagil Beach, located in a small village in the municipality of Lagoa. Considered one of the beautiful beaches on the coast, it gained fame due to its iconic cave which earned it the title of one of the 10 best caves in the world according to the Huffington Post.

The cave is beautiful and certainly worth the visit that can be made both by boat and kayak.

3- Ilha de Tavira – Tavira

If you’re looking for paradisiacal beaches, exploring Ilha de Tavira is an excellent option! With several beaches scattered along the coast, the island meets two requirements: tranquility and contact with nature. To get there, you need to take a boat. Even if it is an island, it has a good infrastructure and visitors can enjoy spaces such as cafes and restaurants for meals and, for those who decide to enjoy a little more, there is a place to camp. Surely it deserves to be on the list of 5 beaches in the Algarve to visit in September.

4 – Três Irmãos Beach (Prainha) – Alvor

Located in Portimão, Praia dos Três Irmãos, also known as Prainha, has incredible rock formations. With huge cliffs and small bays, it has columns and caves that you can’t miss exploring. There are several ways to get there: by the elevator of Caniço Restaurant, by a staircase for those coming through the Prainha Tourist Village, or by a space between the cliffs for those coming through Alvor Beach.

The beach has restaurants, bathrooms, viewpoints and lifeguards (in summer).

5 – Quarteira Beach – Vilamoura

Quarteira Beach is a real paradise that deserves to be mentioned. With white sand and blue sea, this beach makes time go by without even noticing it.
