Beaches

Algarve. Extensive beaches and unique golden cliffs in Europe.

In Vilamoura there are two magnificent beaches ideal for a day in the sun or long walks on kilometers of fine sand: Vilamoura’s beach (also known as Marina Beach) and Falésia Beach (Rocha Baixinha). On these beaches, both with extensive sandy beaches, you can also venture in more or less active sports, such as surfing, windsurfing, water skiing, jet-skiing and parasailing. To end the day we suggest a light meal or a dinner on the beach, either next to the fish market of Quarteira, or on one of Falésia’s beach bars.

About 30/40 minutes’ drive from Pinhal da Marina do not miss some of the most emblematic beaches of the Algarve, like Marina beach, considered one of the 100 most beautiful beaches in the world for its natural beauty, lined with golden rocks, unique in Europe. We also suggest a visit to the beach of São Rafael (Albufeira), Praia Grande (Armação de Pêra) and Benagil’s Beach (Lagoa). In all of them, before descending to the beach, take a break and enjoy the view from the cliff tops.

Traveling towards Faro and Olhão – 30/40 minute drive – you should also experience the beaches of the Islands of Culatra, Armona and Barreta. These are small, isolated and secluded paradises, accessible only by boat, with a huge stretch of white sand and crystal clear waters, for a different day.

Whatever the option, Pinhal da Marina can always arrange a more convenient transportation for you, whether through car rental or booking a transfer.
