Praia dos Aveiros


This little bay follows on from the rocky massif that delimits the bay of Albufeira to the east and its orientation means you can contemplate the coastal panorama all the way to Vilamoura.

The beach nestles between cliffs, giving rise to a tranquil rocky pool. You can go for a walk along the rocky platform at the base of the cliff to the west, bringing you to a footpath that runs along the top of the cliff all the way to the beach at Forte de S. João. The cliff is extremely worn from the effects of the elements and you will be able to see many galleries, caves and sinkholes during your walk.

In the rainy months, a small stream flows on to the sands, with reeds and poplars growing alongside it. Vegetation is abundant around the beach, ranging from plants adapted to sea spray such as Mediterranean saltbush and saltwort, to plants from the transitional area known as the Barrocal, including the dwarf fan palm, Europe’s only native palm tree.

More information

Note: Since there is a possibility of rockfalls or stones coming loose and falling on to the beach, you should keep a safe distance from the cliffs, and take care if you are walking along the cliff top, staying well back from the edge.

Road access on tarmacked roads is via the built-up area of Areias de S. João, following the signs to the beach. There is a medium-sized organised parking area 300 metres from the beach. Vehicle traffic and parking are restricted in the vicinity of the beach. Support infrastructures include a restaurant, WC and information facilities, and there are lifeguards on duty in the summer holiday season. Orientation: south-east.
