Summary of the Beach Inspectors
At Praia da Alagoa there is plenty on offer for young and old. The whole family can spend a good day at the beach here. The beach is relatively close to the Spanish border and is impressive on all fronts. On the sandy terrain you can play volleyball or make yourselves comfortable under a beach umbrella. There's no shortage of water sports here either. You can go sailing, kayaking or take a ride in a pedal boat. A number of small restaurants along the edge of the dunes provide food and drinks.

Praia da Alagoa - A spot for the whole family

Near the Spanish border is a beach which will appeal to adults and children alike. At Praia da Alagoa you will find lots on offer for the whole family. British and French holidaymakers in particular have discovered this place for themselves. If you want to find out what attracts them here again and again, you should come and experience what it has to offer.

Praia da Alagoa is easy to get to. From Altura you can come on foot. You can also get here quickly by car, because there are beach signs that point you in the right direction. You access the vast beach via a wooden bridge. The sand is white and feels very pleasant underfoot.

There are numerous areas with sun loungers and beach umbrellas, in case you don't have your own sunshade with you. If you get the urge to have a sporting contest there is a volleyball net near the dunes. In the centre of the vast beach there are some fun-looking watercraft - green and red cars with slides, and lots of boats and boards. A water sports operator will be happy to rent these items to you.

Near the dunes you will find a large number of small restaurants. The choice on the menu ranges from light refreshments and snacks to substantial meals and local specialities. In peak season you may have to wait for a table, but the friendly waiters try to be as helpful as possible. In the summer months parties take place several times a month at Praia da Alagoa. You should definitely go along if you want to party on the beach.
