Praia dos Salgados, Albufeira

4.7
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.

  • Our hotel was on the beach, we went down to the beach every day, but unfortunately it was not possible to hire sun loungers and umbrella (too little), so we spent one hour in the ocean. The water is clean, the waves and the sand is rough-fruited, but not.

  • Had to come back, is one of the best beaches in the area. Has a long, sandy beach is nice, has Bar. ... Has organized parking, though always little demand.

  • Great nice beach with mostly locals. Fine sand and a lot of space, however, dangerous to just because of the big waves that strikes against a sloping sandvall. Children can't swim.

Where to stay in Albufeira

Renowned for its extensive beaches and rugged coastal landscape, Albufeira represents one of the nation's most popular destinations and offers a wide array of accommodations, both luxurious and more basic. Reserve a room in one of the city's upscale hotels in order to make use of pools, lounges, gardens, and amenities during your stay. Not only do they offer in-house luxuries, but generally these hotels place you within easy walking distance of the city's famed Praia dos Pescadores beach. While there aren't as many inexpensive options in town, staying at an inland bed and breakfast or a guesthouse in one of the smaller nearby towns can be both a relaxing experience and an affordable one.
