Oura is a beautiful beach like most in the Algarve.. It must have been very beautiful 50 years ago before they built all of those resorts.

Spent four days here. Clean beach patrolled by life guards. Beautiful rock formations. Nice places to have lunch with plenty of choices. Great chill out bars overlooking the beach for that end of day glass of bitingly cold wine. We will be back.

Nice beach to relax and enjoy the waves for an afternoon if you can get a bed which are a little scarce. Could do with a little more amenities but you know what your getting when you enter. Both eateries are well stocked and pleasant...More
