Praia dos Pescadores, Albufeira

(4.2/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • We stopped here whilst exploring the area. We walked down to the beach at the far Western end and made our way to the escalators at the East end. Lots of shells if you collect them. We then walked up ...  more »
  • The beach is beautiful, clean, the sea is calm and there are many artists who make sculptures in sand, another attraction not to be missed.

  • 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.
