The most beautiful beaches of Portugal and even of the world are in Albufeira and Carvoeiro. Paradisiac beaches, white sands, surrounded by natural landscapes like no other, amazing cliffs carved by the erosion of the wind and sea, make these areas some of the most popular destinations in the country and in Europe.
Albufeira has the most awarded beaches, totaling 23 and Lagoa was awarded this year with 6 blue flags.
Along the coast of the Central Algarve, between Albufeira and Carvoeiro, we find the beaches with high environmental quality, with very distinct characteristics providing a wide variety of choice for all tastes.
For those who enjoy great walks by the sea, we suggest Praia da Falésia, Praia da Rocha Baixinha, Praia da Galé, Praia dos Salgados and Praia de Armação de Pêra, beaches very appreciated for their extensive golden sands and clear waters. For lovers of beach with some rocks, we suggest Praia de S. Rafael, Praia Manuel Lourenço, Praia das Pedras Amarelas, Praia de Benagil and Praia da Marinha.
