Unwind on Praia do Peneco, a sunny stretch of golden sand near the city's old town. Reachable via a man-made tunnel through the cliffs, it remains popular among both tourists and locals, especially in the summer. Lounge on the sand and catch some rays, or go for a swim in the clean, azure waters. When you tire of swimming, you can grab a bite or quench your thirst at one of many bars and restaurants that line the beach. Facilities are plentiful and include sunbeds, umbrellas, wheelchair ramps, and lifeguard stations. To visit Praia do Peneco on your trip to Albufeira, use our Albufeira journey maker app.

  • Great beach to relax and surfing. In the midst of the tourist season a lot of people, but there is a place for everyone. Location is ideal, it is a short walk from the center, there is a lot of cafe nearby where you can buy drinks, desserts or ice cream. For a fee, you can rent a sunbed. Of the minuses - the lack of taps for washing feet, but there is a restaurant nearby (closer to the cliff) where for 1 € you can use the shower. In the photo you can see the beach in the morning - completely without people, and closer to lunchtime.
