Summary of the Beach Inspectors

As one of several beaches bordering the large tourist centre of Portimão to the south, Praia do Amado is spot that has lots of visitors, but is good for relaxing in front of an impressive rocky backdrop. You can hire sun loungers and buy snacks and drinks but there are no other tourist facilities on the beach. From the clifftop you can allow your gaze to sweep across the wonderful coastal landscape.

Praia do Amado - Relax near Portimão

On the southern edge of Portimão, one of the largest tourist centres on the Algarve, the little sandy beach of Praia do Amado spreads out in an area where the only buildings are individual holiday apartments. Like many neighbouring beaches this section of coast is charming because of its tall, striking, steep coastline which glows various shades of brown and red in the sun.

Praia do Amado is easy to get to by car. You'll find places to park along the coastal road above the cliffs. A set of steps leads down to the beach, but first you should enjoy the wonderful views of the surrounding coastal landscape from up above.

The staff at a little hut on the sand will provide you with drinks and small snacks, and you can also hire sun loungers and beach umbrellas there. In addition, on the clifftop there is a carefully laid out restaurant and bar. From there you have a fantastic view of the beach and the open sea.

There's lots going on at this beach in summer because it's a popular destination, especially with the locals. However even then Praia do Amado is not overcrowded. It tends to be peaceful and relaxation is high on the agenda here.
