Praia dos Salgados

Post code - Albufeira
Municipality Albufeira
Location Albufeira

The beach is a continuation of Praia Grande to the east of Lagoa dos Salgados, the lagoon that is formed at the very end of the Ribeira de Espiche. To reach the beach, you have to pass through a tourist development linked to the golf course along the shores of the lagoon, walking down an avenue flanked by tall palm-trees. The area close to the beach still remains in its natural state: to the west are the robust sand dunes of Praia Grande and the broad mirror-like surface of the lagoon, surrounded by thick vegetation where coots in particular and sometimes shags can be seen fishing; to the east are sand dunes stretching into the distance, now much lower but just as abundant in flora and fauna. The beach is a vast expanse of sand with some very quiet and peaceful areas. Crossing over the area around the mouth of the Ribeira de Espiche, which communicates sporadically with the sea, you can follow the Praia Grande nature trail, which allows you to discover the flora and fauna of the sand dunes and Lagoa dos Salgados.

Notes: Lagoa dos Salgados is not suitable either for bathing or for water sports.

Access: At Vale de Parra on the road between Albufeira and Pêra (EM 526), there is a tarmac road signposted to the beach roughly 2 kilometres away. There is a fairly large and organised car park near the beach, which has basic support facilities (restaurant and toilets) and is supervised during the bathing season. The beach is classified as an accessible beach and faces south-west.
