Approx 4kms to the west of Albufeira Old Town , are the stunningly beautiful ‘Blue Flag’ beaches of Gale. The beach is around 5km long with clean golden sand. Therefore even in the height of summer one can find plenty of space to sunbathe. The beach is made up of soft sand and is safe for children. It has all the usual water sports one could expect in the summer time. From here it is possible to clamber over the rock and head east to as far as São Rafael beach (recently voted one of the top ten beaches in Europe), passing São Lourenço, Everisto,–Castello and Cohelho beaches, each with their own beach restaurants and character and absolutely stunning. In between these beaches there are many small sandy coves, where you can sit for hours undisturbed. Also the cliff walks between these beaches makes you feel you are on some desert island with lots of species of natural flower and fauna.
To the North of Galé (approx 2kms), is the small and pleasant village of Vale da Parra with its restaurants and bars.However from November to March it is very quiet and you can walk west, along the Ocean edge, to Armação de Pêra. This walk is about 5 Km long passing soft sand dunes with the Nature reserve of Salgados on your right. Here you will find a lovely boardwalk which takes you through a natural bird habitat left largely undisturbed where migrating birds last stop on their way to Africa. Always something to see her. Walk on and you will arrive a the seaside town of Armação de Pêra which is still an active fishing village with its own fleet and fishing huts on the edge of the beach. Lots of local quaint beach bars along with many fishermen’s boats.
Turning left (east) on Gale beach, the scenery changes entirely, with small cliffs and rock formations where you will regularly see anglers fishing for their evening meal. The cliffs form many intimate coves that give a safe and natural wind break, where children can play in the crashing waves or explore the rock pools. In addition there are many restaurants and coffee shops as this is a popular Portuguese holiday village.
