Summary of the Beach Inspectors

At Praia dos Três Irmãos in the south of the Algarve you will find a good range of restaurants set in four different rocky coves. There's ample room and a gentle sandy slope down to the water in the first of the four bays. Here the conditions are perfect for surfing, kiting and windsurfing, and we also recommend the diving. Even if you don't have your own equipment and have to rely on the options provided by the water sports operator on the beach, you certainly won't be bored, since these include canoes, stand up paddle boards, jet skis and banana boats. At low tide you will have no problem reaching two smaller, rock-encircled coves to the east, each of which has its own restaurant.

Praia dos Três Irmãos - A beautiful, multifaceted sandy beach, sculpted from the rocks by the wind

At the eastern end of the long sandy beach of Praia do Alvor in the southern Algarve, not far from Portimão, lies Praia dos Três Irmãos on a sandy coast furrowed by rocks. Três Irmãos means "three brothers" and alludes to the three large chunks of rock that are a feature of the beach. Further large rock formations divide this stretch of coastline into four bigger bays that can be reached on foot by heading east from the spacious car park, which you will find quite close to the charming fishing village of Alvor.

The first of a total of four restaurants is right at the entrance. At O Luis Restaurant & Bar you can savour delicious fish dishes and other Portuguese specialities. This section of the beach is a good place to settle down comfortably on the long wide sandy surface, which slopes away gently towards the sea. At Praia dos Três Irmãos there are sun umbrellas and loungers available, and you can rent water sports equipment. For the appropriate fees you can have a go on banana boats, jet skis, canoes and stand up paddle boards. If you've brought your own equipment, you'll find that conditions at Praia dos Três Irmãos are ideal for surfing, windsurfing and kiting. Diving is great here too.

Behind the three rock features you will find another large, well-kept area of sand, plus a restaurant. From there you can head east into a slightly smaller, but equally well-equipped bay. A restaurant, sun lounger rental, and a lifeguard are on hand to provide for your needs in this rock-framed cove. While the last of the four bays on this stretch of coastline is very compact, especially at high tide, it nonetheless has a restaurant tucked away against the cliff.
