The strip wasn't too busy this time of year, but later very noisy and older people may not like it. It's certainly not to be missed for younger people.

We try to avoid the strip when in Albufeira. If you want bars and drinking this place is for you but if you want scenic small cafes and restaurants then stay away. Better shopping and eating in other areas.

Hate to say this, but this place (street) is like my worst nightmare. Cheap food with waiters trying to get you into their establishment, hassled by shop staff wanting you to buy the same 'tat' that all the other shops lined up next to each other, as you walk past, and then asked if I wanted to buy some drugs,...

This typical resort strip is built around a long street which heads down to the sea at a small but very picturesque bay with a clean sandy beach and wonderful eroded rock scenery, a must to visit if you holiday here. If it isn't quite beach weather, a daytime visit to "The Strip" gives a chance to explore bars, restaurants,... More

This is Benidorm moved to Portugal!! If you want loud music, plenty of cheap places to drink. and very average entertainment....well here it is. Not a place to go if you are driving. As I say, one for the young set!!

the pavements are just little squares just like cobbles they are not even, there were a few places closed but expected that, the traffic some drivers thought they were on a motorway flying down the strip, there are some nice places to eat and drink and watch sport, there are also some places being refurbished or just closed for winter,...

from one end to the other, bars café,s shops of all kinds you can spend a lot of time just going from one place to another it is manley for the young and single the music is quite lound all night, but worth a look you can always go and have a quite drink some where else.

Bars and pubs all the way down some are better than others! lots of touts but they tend to leave you alone if you decline. Top end is slightly more tame and as you progress down it the bars get louder. Can be quite dirty at times during the night however during the day its all cleaned down. Overall a... More

Not much was open for the new year week but few more places opened Up for the New Year's Eve party. Whilst strolling up and down the strip we were often stop and asked if we wanted drugs, made me feel quite uneasy. This made our holiday stay worse after being in the Vila Nova apartments at the top of... More
