Falesia Beach Olhos de Agua
#1 of 26 Nature & Parks in Albufeira
Easily reachable by car, you can park nearby, under pinetrees located over the surronding limestone cliffs where you can find lovely trails with a breathtaking view.
Falesia beach is elected one of the most beautiful beach in the world; it deserves this title 100%: A mixture of the national parks in the USA; Brice Canon, Zion , Canon de Chelly, etc

Praia Sao Rafael

Recently stayed at the 5 Star Sao Rafael Atlantico Hotel which had access to this Fantastic beach There is also a car park above the beach with Lots of steps down to the beach.
This beautiful cove and beach has clean shelving sand backed by ochre/orange cliffs and is easily reached from the adjoining car park down a somewhat steep ramp/stairs combination.
Praia Gale Gale
#4 of 26 Nature & Parks in Albufeira
We loved the Praia de Gale as our favourite beach - you can drive (and park all day for free) right up to the beach which is the most divine soft and clean unspoilt sand stretch of miles upon miles - my wife and I...
Wonderful beach for walking with many attractions in the high season plus lots of bars and restaurants but very nice - you can walk from Gale beach to Armacao de Pera alongside sand dunes and past the nature reserve

Praia do Barranco das Belharucas Olhos de Agua
#5 of 26 Nature & Parks in Albufeira
The road to the beach is a dirt track but it was convenient to have the car in the car park to have all the beach equipment in the boot!
Very small car park and the access road is badly rutted.
Praia da Coelha
#6 of 26 Nature & Parks in Albufeira
It's a little walk from the car park with a narrow path but worth it :) I visit every year
A bit off the beaten track but well worth the short walk from the car park.

Clean with beds and life guards with easy access from car park and hotel, busy but plenty of space.
There is a good sized car park and the Atlantico cafe which is part of the Grade Real hotel is behind the beach.
Praia dos Olhos de Agua Olhos de Agua
#9 of 26 Nature & Parks in Albufeira
The beach was topped off by the lovely little rock pools which our daughter enjoyed exploring as they captured provided a brief snapshot of nature along the coastline.
... views as well as a nice rock formation which makes it interesting A number of gift shops and resteraunts make this a nice place to visit ,parking is limited but it is a short walk from the public car park .well
Praia da Oura
#10 of 26 Nature & Parks in Albufeira
The reason for that is a steep hill you have to climb to get out of there plus way to the beach is not your typical walk in the park.
Praia dos Pescadores
#11 of 26 Nature & Parks in Albufeira
The second car park is at the top of the cliffs at Bairro dos Pescadores and is accessed via the outdoor escalator.
There are lots of watersports on offer, highlight for us was the inflatable water park which you swim out to.

Praia da Rocha Baixinha
#16 of 26 Nature & Parks in Albufeira
If drive to very end passing all car parks and signs there is a biggish car park and very short flat walk to beach.
Be brave.... keep going down the dusty road and you will eventually reach the car park for this lovely beach, just down from the Praia de Falesia.
Arrifes Beach
#17 of 26 Nature & Parks in Albufeira
Lagoa dos Salgados Gale
#18 of 26 Nature & Parks in Albufeira
This was a wonderfully accessible nature reserve, with the crashing waves and beautiful sandy beaches one side of the sand dunes and the natural salt water lake with board walk and viewing places the other side.
Keep the Bamboo on your right and walk through the car park.
Inatel Beach

Due to the clef nature of this region many beaches require stairs; ramps, elevators, and escalators to access them.

The car park in paderne is free too which is always good.
