#5 of 24 in Parks in Albufeira
A golden stretch of sand backed by a string of upscale hotels, Praia da Oura sits just a short walk from the center of Albufeira, a major resort town on the country's southern coast. Famous for its relaxed atmosphere, the beach draws vacationers from around the world. Escape the biggest crowds by using your snorkeling equipment to explore the rugged outcroppings along the coastline. Once you have your fill of water and sand, walk into town and discover a network of narrow streets lined with restaurants and bars that serve signature cocktails and seafood specialties. The area near the beach gets extremely crowded, so arrive early to take advantage of convenient parking near the waterfront.

  • Great quiet beach. Access during seasonal times to water sports and great local amenities. Soft sand and relatively clean water.
  • Lovely beaches but a long walk to get there,an when you get there it two escalators to get down which one wasn't working 😱 not good enough,for prams and elderly people.
  • Nice walk Dow from the Strip to the beach. Lovely cafe and sea views. Easy access to sand and sea. Horrendously steep walk back ip Cardiac Hill unless you are lucky enough to find a taxi or hitch a lift
  • Stunning beach, lovely soft sand and very picturesque. Plenty of eateries available
  • Fabulous long stretch of beautiful scenic beach! A m a z I n g!!!!!?
