    praia de Albandeira beach

Praia de Albandeira is a Beautiful small sandy beach, found in a small rocky cove in between Carvoeiro and Armacao de Pera in a small village called Vale de Engenhos. There is a kiosk type bar called “O Pirata” which is open during the high season serving up snacks and drinks. There are also toilets at the restaurant. There is also a Picnic Area with several large tables. The beach is split into several small coves of which some are only accessible by swimming around the rocks or on low tide there is a gap between so if you are quick and dont mind getting your feet wet you can reach it. To reach the beach by car leave the EN 125 at the Escola Internacional do Algarve heading South towards the sea and follow the sign posts for Praia de Albandeira. The nearest landmark is the Suites Alba Resort and Spa. you will have to park your car at the top of the cliffs, but there are plenty of spaces, and wlak down. Please be aware that it can be difficult if you are not to good on walking or need aids for doing so, and it advisabla to wear sensible walking shoes to get there. However having said that it is well worth a vist if you enjoy tranquillity and you adore the fantastic views on offer. Praia de Albandeira is one of the best beach for swimming in the area as it is sheltered by the rock formations and the sea tends to be more gentle than in other areas, there are also lots of rock pools to expolre. To the east and towards Armacao de Pera you will find a cliff top path that is great for walking and offers a fantastic view of the Senhora de Rocha chapel at its furthest point. In the opposite direction towards Carvoeiro you can walk as far as the Marinha beach, and beyond.
