Praia Gale, Albufeira

(4.6/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Far away from roads and buildings, Praia Gale offers wide stretches of golden sands, crystal clear waters, hidden ocean grottoes, and extraordinary rock formations. Small sheltered rock pools at the site make it easy for children to splash around safely under their parents' watchful eye. Several snack and drink bars are available at the site, as are restrooms. Explore the area looking for seashells and caves, and be sure to bring sunscreen. Use our Albufeira vacation trip planner to add Praia Gale and other attractions to your Albufeira vacation plans.
