#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 beach with beautiful soft sand and blue sea. Either end picturesque rocks and cliffs. A walkway takes you east along the clifftop to a cafe.
  • Always clean comfortable and well maintained. Cleaners come every day and are friendly and efficient. Booking is easy and nothing is too much for them.
  • Beautiful little beach that was within walking distance from where we were staying. Highly recommend
  • End Sep meant less crowds and warm weather. Lots of places to eat and drink. Sea view on most places to eat. Small beach. Perfect beach but must get packed​ at height of summer
  • A lovely sandy beach. Not the longest in the area but still great for swimming and sunbathing
