“Idyllic small beach”

Praia de Albandeira
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 June 2018 via mobile

Praia de Albandeira is an idyllic small beach that in contrast to most other beaches has no stones in the water on the left side. When the tide is low, you can walk through the rock tunnel to get to the neighbor beach and an impressive view. The only negative thing I have to mention is the accessibility by car - you can drive there, but at least one mile of the road is so narrow that it's impossible for two cars to pass by each other. The second time I visited Praia de Albandeira, I took a walk along the coast starting at Praia de Marina on which I saw a lot of great things!

Lovely beach with sand all the way into the sea, no seaweed or broken shells when we visited. No problems parking at 4pm at end of July. Access is via road with lots of single track passing spaces which was easy with a small car.

Between Quarteira and Carvoeira on the Algarve coast you'll find this little gem of a beach tucked away. Just a short piece of dirt road needs to be driven.
Tide was high when I came and still it was stunning.
There's work being done to put in what looks like a cafe and some timber rails.
Want to spend a day in a little piece of paradise head here - check the tides before you come; for now you won't be fighting any crowds.

Great beach. Has some good protection from the wind. Good cafe with snack food. A little off the beaten track but was a good find. Sometimes you could be the only people on the beach. Over Easter.

We went to this beach because the last time we were in the Algarve two years ago, this was our favourite beach. We were a little disappointed this time. The rock formations are amazing and just how we remembered it. This time we noticed a lot of ants on the beach which does not work with a one year old sitting playing with sand. The cafe at the top of the steps before you head down onto the beach has excellent pizza but very overpriced, and that is all they sell. I am sure the pizzas were not this expensive when we were there two years ago but I may be wrong. The beach is definitely worth a visit but the ants kept us from going back again and again like we did two years ago.
