Secluded and yet accessible, this little piece of heaven is situated in the south of the Algarve, just waiting for you to visit. A narrow footpath leads you to the relaxing bay of Praia da Figueira, where the cares of the world seem to disappear. The lush green of the beautiful valley blends into rocky cliffs that disappear into the light sand. The dunes melt equally imperceptibly into the clear water, which merges with the deep blue sky in the distance. At Praia da Figueira you will find peace and privacy, far from the tourist crowds, and its beauty will overwhelm you!
Praia da Figueira - An unspoiled dream beach with lots of space and peace
When the midday sun is high in the sky the ocean water sparkles like diamonds on the fantastically beautiful Praia da Figueira. As your gaze sweeps over the small, unspoiled bay it makes your heart soar.
The gentle arc of almost white sand blends into the brilliantly clear bright blue of the Atlantic, which in turn gradually gives way to the dark blue of the deep sea, only to be reunited with the light on the distant horizon.
The large, secluded sandy beach of Praia da Figueira is a real insider's tip on Portugal's south coast. Only a few visitors stray here, although the journey is not too difficult. From Lagos it takes about half an hour. Once you've parked your car, you have to walk almost a kilometre through a beautiful natural landscape with flourishing fig and olive trees. A small swamp shows you that you have arrived at your destination.
At the foot of the limestone formations, overgrown with pines, you can listen to the gentle murmur of the waves on Praia da Figueira. Despite the strong wind, the water is exceptionally calm. Perhaps it's trying to match the mood on shore, where there are no disruptive tourist facilities. The few visitors here are mainly young couples. Locals and tourists alike appreciate the quiet romance of this natural jewel.
