Summary of the Beach Inspectors

The urban beaches of Praia dos Pescadores and Praia do Peneco are just in front of the old town district of Albufeira. Much of this large holiday resort in the south of Portugal is situated at the top of steep cliffs. Nonetheless, escalators, a lift and a tunnel are provided so that you can get down to the spacious sandy beaches without a problem. Praia dos Pescadores and Praia do Peneco are exceptionally family-friendly. The approach to the water slopes very gently and the Atlantic is relatively calm on this stretch of the coastline. The amenities leave nothing to be desired, and include plenty of shops, restaurants and cafés, various water sports options and a water playground.

Praia dos Pescadores and Praia do Peneco - Albufeira's home beaches speak for themselves

It couldn't be more convenient: to get to the big urban beaches at Albufeira, you can choose between escalators, a lift and a tunnel through the cliffs. The two connected beaches of Praia dos Pescadores and Praia do Peneco are outstanding in other ways too. They are exceptionally well equipped to meet the demands of thousands of summer tourists.

Praia dos Pescadores and Praia do Peneco are just in front of the white cottages and narrow alleyways of the old town district of Albufeira, a city on the south coast of Portugal, whose skyline is characterised by numerous hotels and apartment buildings. The beach is bordered to the sides by crumbling yellowish cliffs dropping away steeply into the water, and its sand has a reddish glow.

The gentle slope down into the calm water makes the town beaches at Albufeira an ideal family holiday destination. You can hire pedal boats and canoes for exploring the bay on the water, have a go at stand up paddle boarding or have fun on the water playground. If you're feeling even more energetic you can go for a ride on a jet ski or a banana boat.

Directly behind the beach and in the nearby streets of the city you will find plenty of shops, restaurants and cafés. The retailers and restaurant businesses are fully geared towards tourists' needs. On the menus you'll find both local and international dishes, and lots of the shops have an assortment of souvenirs and beach equipment.
