Soak up some local color at Praia dos Pescadores, a curving stretch of golden sands lapped by the gentle waters of the Atlantic. This fisherman's beach, as its name roughly translates, blends its scenic location with easy access to Albufeira's Old Town. Just a short walk from the water, you can find busy streets packed with tourists and flanked by hotels, restaurants, bars, and shops selling local souvenirs. For unobstructed views of the sea and the coastline, take the escalator to the top of the cliffs, which provide a natural backdrop to this popular beach. End your visit with a meal at one of many seaside food kiosks selling local dishes and cold drinks.

Praia dos Pescadores reviews
The most famous beach in Albufeira and maybe Algarve. Busy and young crowd and super convenient just next to the Old Town.

Would be a lovely beach but there are cigarette butts everywhere and bits of rubbish hence the 2 star rating.
Lovely beach full of tourist. Can be very crowded but has a lovely calm mood by the end of the day
