Praia do Alemão Beach

Located in Portimão, this beach attracts many tourists who want to enjoy its rocky look. Surrounded by reddish-colored cliffs, it offers the visitor a sandy beach that, although not very long, is very well organized, both for its offer of umbrella areas and for its pleasant corners and solitary nooks. Its name comes from the fact that the first house that was built there belonged to a German. Interesting, don’t you think?

Praia Grande Beach

If the goal is to have a vacation in the Algarve with the whole family, this beach is the right place. Because it is located in a kind of bay, the beach does not have many waves and is ideal for children. Located near Armação de Pêra, it has a sandy strand that stretches for more than 2km of the open and natural landscape. There, it is possible to have a panoramic view over the Salgados lagoon and the dunes, it is possible to observe the sandstones (fossilized dunes) and showy sand flowers. In addition, the beach is known for being an excellent bird observatory.

Faro Islands

Faro, the main city in the region and where the airport is located, has famous islets that are almost deserted – even in Summer. To reach any of them, you have to go by boat and there are excursions every day. Since its access is not easy, it is ideal for those who want to escape the big crowds and enjoy a paradise beach.
