Praia dos Salgados, Albufeira
(4.7/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
For a bit of relaxation and recreation, visit Praia dos Salgados, a wide beach featuring rolling sand dunes and a renowned golf course. One of the highlights here is the lagoon at the end of the beach, where flamingos nest every spring. Restaurants and bars sit adjacent to the site, while the golf course is next to the marshlands just behind the beach. The course is not long, but the challenge stands with the many lakes you have to navigate. To visit Praia dos Salgados on your trip to Albufeira, use our Albufeira vacation generator.

  • Highly recommend to everyone, especially families with young children, so this beach is always clean (no algae), a convenient set in water (no stones) and at low tide and stunning views at sunset. Four-place here, where you can eat and restaurants from sophisticated to simple cafes with ice-cream, coffee and snacks. And if early to arrive, you can keep the cars very close to the beach
