River Beach

Alcoutim is one of the Algarve’s most delightful towns, the rooftops of the houses adorned with the characteristic lacy chimneys. Located on the banks of the Guadiana and overlooking Spain, it could just as easily have become part of the Alentejo region or Spain due to its geographical location.  But this is a genuine Algarve beach. As you head out of the town on the road to Vila Real de Santo António, you will see the signpost for the beach: “Praia Fluvial do Pego Fundo”.

The beach is a small dam, built on a section of the Cadavais Stream, resulting in warm, barely-moving waters. To ensure everyone can enjoy the beach, it is equipped with an amphibious wheelchair so that the disabled or those with reduced mobility can easily reach the sand and the water.

Set in very pleasant surroundings, the beach has a garden where you can sit in the shade of the trees, a beach volleyball court, exercise equipment, a car park, bar and changing rooms. All of it just waiting to give you another great holiday experience.
