Praia dos Pescadores


Praia dos Pescadores


Known in English as “Fishermen’s Beach”, Praia dos Pescadores is the continuation of Peneco Beach. It is framed by the pontoon to the east and, to the west, by the bright lights and whitewashed houses that surround the beach like an amphitheatre and whose foundations seem to blend into the rock of the cliff face.

Doing justice to its longstanding tradition of fishing, until only a few years ago you would have seen colourful traditional fishing boats on this beach but they have now been transferred to the new safe harbour in Albufeira Marina.

Access to the beach is via the square called “Largo 25 de Abril”, which has been turned into a large paved area where you will see people on roller skates, skateboards and segways. Alternatively, you can take the escalator down the cliff that delimits the beach to the east. There is a busy tourist area next to the beach with an endless array of bars and restaurants. This is a very busy beach due to its urban setting.

More information

You can access the beach on foot either from Praia do Peneco or through the city centre. Traffic and parking are restricted in the vicinity of the beach, especially at the western end. There is plenty of organised parking around 200 m from the beach.
