Praia dos Pescadores, Albufeira
(4.2/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Soak up some local color at Praia dos Pescadores, a curving stretch of golden sands lapped by the gentle waters of the Atlantic. This fisherman's beach, as its name roughly translates, blends its scenic location with easy access to Albufeira's Old Town. Just a short walk from the water, you can find busy streets packed with tourists and flanked by hotels, restaurants, bars, and shops selling local souvenirs. For unobstructed views of the sea and the coastline, take the escalator to the top of the cliffs, which provide a natural backdrop to this popular beach. End your visit with a meal at one of many seaside food kiosks selling local dishes and cold drinks. Plan to see Praia dos Pescadores and other attractions that appeal to you using our Albufeira itinerary builder.

  • This beautiful beach is located right in the Centre of Albufeira, jun to the many bars, restaurants, gift shops and other services that the tourist needs. To access you can use a treadmill that works full-time. Worth much a tanned there.

  • Nothing going on in Nov but one can see the potential. No details as there were no facilities open. Whyb must I write 100 words when there is nothing to say 
  • Nice beach right in the old town. Showers and toilets available, and there are 100 meters up to a place with more cafes Beware when showering, since there suddenly can get quite large waves, but otherwise it's a nice beach

  • Best beach experiance i have ever had. Great warm waters, golden sand, bbq food and bars the lot. There is even lifts and escalators to the beach. Magical place at night with a nice quiet atmosphere sitting on beanbags on the beach. Excellent place!
  • Beautiful sandy beaches with room for all. Clear warm water. Plenty of bars and restaurants all around the area serving local food if you want it and plentiful English food if you don't.
  • Great beach and there was a large inflatable obstacle course in the sea, which is cheap to go on and you can stay on it for ages.
  • Too crowded , Albufeira is by far the worst place in algarve
  • Praia incrível com muitas atividades disponíveis. A água é transparente e não é fria. Fica muito perto do centro histórico.
