Enjoy a long expanse of gently shelving sand to the sea or a small, secluded rocky cove.

Praia do Alvor, Portimão

Praia do Alvor is almost a continuation of the beautiful beach of Meia Praia in Lagos. Separated by the Alvor Estuary this long expanse of soft golden sand gently shelves into the blue water of the Atlantic. 

Praia Grande, Ferragudo

Praia Grande is, as the name suggests, the larger of the two beaches and the one with beach cafes and facilities for visitors.
