Beach Nature / Park
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.

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.
