  • This is a beautiful beach with a big area of sand for people to lay down their towels. It is true that it is crowed. However, it is mostly populated by families which gives you a sense of security. Th...  more »
  • I went with family in days well-populated. Just to know the time of the tides, we didn't find a lifeguard. I'm glad it didn't require any help more urgent.

  • What a lovely Restaurant. I was nearly put off by a few people's experiences and ratings on Trip advisor but am so glad we decided to try this little gem out. They serve all fresh seafood. The food is all freshly prepared and cooked to order. We ate there 3 times this week whilst staying in Altura. They speak pretty good English so don't be afraid to speak to them or ask any questions as they are very friendly, The young waiter and waitress especially. It is a family owned restaurant and they are very proud of their food. We could not fault it and if we were staying longer we would definitely go there again. We are here towards the end of November and considering its out of season they still had quite a few customers along with many Portuguese which is a good sign that it's not just for tourists. Great food and wine and would Definitely return without hesitation.
  • Absolutely brilliant wide and very long beach. Soft white sand very well kept clean, lots of sun beds and umbrellas for €10 for the day for 2people. Various restaurants cafes bars in the area. 🌞🌞🌞😎😎🏖👙
  • Wonderful beach and sea. Staff is nice and helpful. There's several options to eat by the beach and in the beach. You can safety leave your stuff by the umbrella and walk along the beach
  • Best beaches and wonderful people. Have a drink in the Alamo lovely people.
  • Really wide, long, flat and sandy beach. Several restaurants near the beach (the fish is delicious) and the 'tourist menu' prices are also inexpensive. This is the calm side of the Algarve ☺️🇵🇹

Where to stay in Monte Gordo

Large hotels and apartment blocks used for holiday rentals make up the majority of accommodations in Monte Gordo. The most desirable options sit directly on the coast, offering unobstructed views over the water and easy beach access. Look a few streets back from the water to find budget-friendly alternatives, including smaller, family-run hotels and cozy guesthouses. A large campground east of town serves as an excellent option for backpackers and hikers.
