You can be in touch with nature, in a peaceful trail with places to rest and huge spots to get your best selfies or photos of the landscape.
Park at Marinha beach and walk as much as you can!

Surfing, lots of sand, great beachfront restaurant, river with lots of sea life ... just get there early to park as it gets busy in good summer weather!

One of the best beaches in the Algarve, just 10 minutes away from Fuseta by ferry, a pictoresque little trip that allows you to contemplate nature.
A travellers tip. Park your car near one of the train stations at Fuseta and then do the walk on the Island to Armona...catch the Ferry to Olhao, enjoy the promenade when you get there and then walk into town and...

I like that you don't have to walk far from the car park to the actual beach which is good for people with mobility problems.

... I had a wonderful experience in two different tours: a relaxing boat tour, great for birdwatching, like flamingos, and a jeep tour, to get to know Pego do Inferno, a breathtaking waterfall that is full of nature.
Friendly staff, giving you all the right informations, caring about nature conservation and still offering welcoming extras.

Praia Gale Gale

Wonderful beach for walking with many attractions in the high season plus lots of bars and restaurants but very nice - you can walk from Gale beach to Armacao de Pera alongside sand dunes and past the nature reserve

The beach is awesome, secluded with awesome rock formations and nature.

Praia do Carvalho Carvoeiro
#20 of 145 Nature & Parks in Faro District
Reaching this delightful beach is a challenge, the roads are dirt tracks but it can be reached by foot from local car parks.
Easy to park and access for my temporarily handicapped husband, he was able to sit in his wheelchair and I had a wooden seat next to him to watch the kids play in the sand.
#21 of 145 Nature & Parks in Faro District
After a lovelly swim we went on the boardwalk through the nature reserve at the back of the beach Saw variety of birds, dragonflies ad turtles A great day out once past the parking challenges of Algarve beaches.
Park up, walk along the beautiful Boardwalk taking in views of the bird sanctuary and sand dunes, then exit on the stunning tranquil beach and watch the sun set.

Praia de Alvor Portimao
#22 of 145 Nature & Parks in Faro District
It is surrounded by sand dunes and a nature area that is only accessible by the amazing Alvor boardwalk.
A great decking boardwalk gets you from the car park (1.5 euro if you want to park close, free if you park further away) to within about 20 metres of the sea.

The road to the beach is a dirt track but it was convenient to have the car in the car park to have all the beach equipment in the boot!
Very small car park and the access road is badly rutted.

A must see beautiful beach and island on the edge of the Ria Formosa nature park! Clean beach with turquoise water.

Gorgeous unspoilt beach, accessible only by little ferry boats - absolute paradise set within Ria Formosa Natural Park.
