  • Zambujeira do Mar
    Zambujeira do Mar beach
    Rui Santos

    The sleepy seaside village of Zambujeira do Mar is set within the Costa Vicentina and Sudoeste Alentejano Nature Park towards the southern end of the Alentejo coast. A huddle of whitewashed walls and terracotta roofs overlook this fantastic beach from the cliff top. 

    This is a good-sized sandy beach with a Blue Flag award so you can be assured that there are plenty of facilities, clean bathing water and a seasonal lifeguard service. Zambujeira is also a good surf spot and attracts...

  • Zambujeira do Mar
    Praia dos Alteirinhos - Zambujeira do Mar
    Luciano Closs

    Located just to the south of the small resort of Zambujeira do Mar, the beach of Praia dos Alteirinhos maintains a fairly wild feel whilst also being quite easy to get to.

    The beach itself is a good-sized stretch of golden sand backed by high, steep cliffs. The water here is crystal clear, but also usually a little on the chilly side. To the northern end of the beach there are a number of  long, low rock formations which add character to the beach and provide lots of smaller areas to...

  • Praia da Amália

    The beach here was once known as Praia do Brejão, after the nearby village. However this changed after Portugal's most famous fado singer, Amália Rodrigues, stayed at a villa overlooking the beach.

    Little has changed since those days and the beach is very much unspoilt. Praia da Amália is not what you would describe as a family beach; it is difficult to find and involves a fair hike to get down to. It is also one of those beaches that virtually disappears at high tide, although, as...

  • Praia de Odeceixe

    The Atlantic coast beach of Praia de Odeceixe Mar straddles the border between the Algarve and Alentejo regions of Portugal. It is situated at the mouth of the River Seixe (Rio de Seixe) which forms the border and lays down a lush green valley leading to the beach.

    Odeceixe is a big sandy beach that is popular with surfers. The break around the river mouth can be especially good. At the northern end there are steep, sheer cliffs.

    At the far southern end is a small cove (Praia...

  • Vila Nova de Milfontes
    Almograve beach

    Set about 10 km to the south of Vila Nova de Milfontes is the low-key, little resort of Almograve. The coast around here is fairly rugged with high cliffs and rocky basalt outcrops jutting out into the might of the Atlantic.

    The beach at Almograve is one of a number of beaches in the area but is by far the biggest and best known. At low tide a wide crescent of golden sand is revealed which is almost separated by a set of rocks towards the middle of the beach. As the tide comes in the...

  • Praia das Adegas

    The small cove of Praia das Adegas is separated from its better known neighbour, Praia de Odeceixe by high cliffs, although at low tide it is possible to walk around. This gives the beach a rather secluded feel and definitely helps keep the crowds down and also makes it a popular spot with naturists.

    The little beach here is very much unspoiled with nothing in the way of development (or facilities). Being on the Algarve's west coast means it faces into the full force of the Atlantic...

  • Praia de Vale dos Homens

    Part of the Vicentine Coast Natural Park, this wild and rugged stretch of beach is located near the village of Rogil, on the very north-western edge of the Algarve.

    This area has almost entirely escaped the developments of the tourist industry that dominate the southern Algarve. Praia de Vale dos Homens is set in farmland and pine forests, and whilst you won't find much in the way of facilities here access to the beach is fairly easy via 285 wooden steps which snake their way down...
