Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
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. Add Praia da Oura and other attractions to your Albufeira trip itinerary using our Albufeira tourist route planner.
