Algarve beaches

The best beaches on the Atlantic coast of the Algarve - actual images, precise maps, descriptions and weather forecast for water sports activities

With 210 km shoreline and more than 300 days of sunshine per year the Algarve coast has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. Extremely clear water, spectacular cliffs with hidden creeks, endless sand beaches, protected by dunes and a mild Atlantic breeze make this place so special. The FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education) has in 2016 awarded 88 beaches at the Algarve the “Blue Flag” for quality of water, sanitary installation, parking place, lifeguard and other available services.
