Praia dos Pescadores

Praia dos Pescadores - Portugal
© Sean MacEntee

Praia dos Pescadores (or Fisherman’s Beach) is a Blue Flag beach which forms one stretch of golden sand running along the coastal side of Albufeira. A stone’s throw from the old town, as well as places to eat, drink and sleep, this beach is unsurprisingly popular with Algarve locals as well as those on holiday in the region.

Named after the spot in town where fishermen historically hauled their boats and catches ashore, Praia dos Pescadores is officially measured at 225 metres long and over 100 metres wide at low tide. It is separated from Praia do Inatel on its eastern side by an easily passable concrete pier, extending its length by several hundred more metres.

Patrolled by lifeguards during the summer months, Praia do Pescadores is a great place for beach activities, with everything from beach volleyball to paragliding on offer. For those keen to simply flop onto the sands, there are several points to hire beach chairs and umbrellas from, while there are also toilets and public shower facilities.
