Go here! Spend 10 Euro on a taxi, totally worth it - have lunch in the cafe there, the meal is so big you won't need to eat again! A beautiful beach hidden from the main tourists.

This beach - 20 min from Albufeira - is a relatively quite beach with nice view and restaurant. Possibility to walk over the cliffs on top as well and sufficient parking facilities. Walking to the beach is easy - descending via normal road / stairs.
