A golden stretch of sand backed by a string of upscale hotels, Praia da Oura sits just a short walk from the center of Albufeira, a major resort town on the country's southern coast. Famous for its relaxed atmosphere, the beach draws vacationers from around the world. Escape the biggest crowds by using your snorkeling equipment to explore the rugged outcroppings along the coastline. Once you have your fill of water and sand, walk into town and discover a network of narrow streets lined with restaurants and bars that serve signature cocktails and seafood specialties. The area near the beach gets extremely crowded, so arrive early to take advantage of convenient parking near the waterfront.

  • One of many great beaches in the area, which we view as the best. Easy access, with great walks along in either direction. Some great restaurants and beach bars

  • Great place for relax or walks. Clean beach with many chairs and bed, a little cold water, amazing caves and not to forget very beautiful women.
  • Beautiful beach! It's small but there are enough beds and spots available, golden sand, there are quite big waves and the water is clear and refreshingly cold and right at the beach are restaurants and shops. For me this was the best and most beautiful beach in albufeira! Perfect spot for a day at the beach and would recommend visiting atleast once. For people seeking more adventure you can alsl walk a path on the cliffs so basicly it has it all here.
