Unwind on Praia do Peneco, a sunny stretch of golden sand near the city's old town. Reachable via a man-made tunnel through the cliffs, it remains popular among both tourists and locals, especially in the summer. Lounge on the sand and catch some rays, or go for a swim in the clean, azure waters. When you tire of swimming, you can grab a bite or quench your thirst at one of many bars and restaurants that line the beach. Facilities are plentiful and include sunbeds, umbrellas, wheelchair ramps, and lifeguard stations. To visit Praia do Peneco on your trip to Albufeira, use our Albufeira journey maker app .

Great Beach with easy access, can get crowded in summer months but allot of bars in the old town and absolutely great night life. If you do not want to get in the middle of stags mostly from England and Scotland I recommend staying outside of Old Town and only coming to the beach during day time. If you want to spend your days soaking up the sun and party the night away, this is the perfect spot for you !
I only went here once and it was amazing! I enjoyed the sand and the sea as well as climbing the mountains and looking out on the ocean. The beach has awesome drinks and ice creams as refreshments. I really recommend going there 💕
