Sand, sea, sand, sea. It’s just one long beautiful beach. The multicoloured cliffs, unfortunately being eroded away with? If you like to beach walk then you will be in your element.

We have been to several beaches and I don’t even know how to describe my experience. The Portugal beaches are some of the best I have ever been at for beauty, beware though this is the Atlantic, don’t expect warm water!

Praia do Barranco das Belharucas in Albufeira Portugal is a long sandy clean algarve beach. Great for walking, picnics or swimming.

Visited this beach with family and friends. Beautiful and clean beach. There is also a small bar where you can buy ice creams or drinks. Lovely view from above as you can also hike. One of the greatest beach around the area.

This beach which is accessible from the hotel Pine Cliff but also from a public side offers an extraordinary beauty. It has pine trees on its back and the cliffs are really amazing.

It is hard to drive and find a place for your car! But you must try this beach even if you go by foot! Go to your right to avoid any wind... and you'll be on paradise.

One of the nicest beaches I have ever experienced. Miles of clean sand and the fresh Atlantic sea. Always a nice breeze here too. Highly recommended.

Get away from the pool and enjoy this wonderful CLEAN beach. Nice walk over the sand dunes, with sunbeds, small beach side bars and restaurants.

Hi William, It's not far - the beach nearest the Alpinus (the Falesia Beach is about 800m), and is the very same beach but further east from the 'Praia do Barranco'. To go to the 'Praia do Barranco', you must go west for... More
