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.

  • where a lift will take you up to the old town. You can use the stairs if you prefer. Lovely beach and a lovelier view from top of lift.
