Praia dos Salgados Gale
#20 of 428 things to do in Algarve
Unlike some of the other beaches such as Praia Gale who's waves can be a bit rough the waves on Praia Dos Salgados are a bit more predictable and calm,a gentle sloping beach which is ideal for young families.
Unlike Praia Gale were the waves can be a bit feisty ( great fun ) the waves on this beach are a lot more predictable and probably more suited to families.
