Beaches to suit every taste

Beaches to suit every taste

Because everyone loves a sunrise…

The Algarve is perfect for the summer holidays.  In addition to having the greatest number of beaches in Portugal, it is where the sun shines for some 3000 hours a year.   It is also an area where you can find beaches to suit everyone.

There are beaches with a lively atmosphere for the multitudes, teeming with activities, but there are also very quiet beaches where you can enjoy kilometres of almost deserted sands; beaches for those who prefer the pleasures of nudism; and private beaches that are closed off to traffic.

Beaches designated Accessible Beaches are specially equipped for disabled holidaymakers.  They provide amenities including reserved disabled parking, specially fitted disabled toilets, wheelchair ramps for access to the beach and even assistance for access to the sea, with amphibious wheelchairs and crutches.

For naturists, there are two beaches where nudism is officially permitted, and many more called “tolerated beaches” where access to the beach is difficult or in some cases where the beach is in a remote area.  In tolerated beaches, nudism is practised in some safety.

Different areas for specific groups are all provided for by the immensity of the Algarvian coast.
