Here is the encyclopedia of amazing Algarve beaches! This entry covers the last part on the sandstrips found in the parish of Vila do Bispo. As you will see, there is a list below, and some of the best beaches are presented in more detail. Hopefully this will finally make you decide to visit Portugal and its famous coastline, inviting all year-round and not just in the summer!
This third bunch of beaches in Vila do Bispo offers generally small but welcoming sandstrips, surrounded by cliffs with vegetation, with vistas of the atlantic sea. Some sit at the shore of a fishing village, while others are more remote and peaceful alternatives; there are some located at a river mouth, others are full of pebbles - there is great variety for you to choose. Here they are!
The marvellous Praia da Fóia do Carro is a little known sandstrip surrounded by rock formations and cliffs full of vegetation, with great waters and fantastic sights. This beach is a bit remote, perfect for a more private and peaceful beach day. Pay attention to the tides when planning to visit to fully enjoy this spot, one of Vila do Bispo's gems!
At the seaside of the picturesque fishing village of Salema, you can find the amazing Praia da Salema. Easily accessible from the town, its sandstrip extends over a long and wide area, and provides everything you need to have a care-free time at the beach. This is one of the favourites in the summer! But if the central area gets a bit busy, you can also walk east, where the tranquil shoreline sits under the cliffside.
The lovely Praia do Burgau is located at the shore of the village of Burgau. This is another of the popular sandstrips of Vila do Bispo. It sits in a small bay, sided by cliffs, in front of the village valley. This union of seaside and old fishing village gives an atmosphere that is very warming and inviting. When passing by, take your time walking the streets, enjoying the beach and the great sights this place has to offer!
And we reached the end of Vila do Bispo's lovely seaside. Like always, if these are not enough for the beach lover in you, check out these other options: very close by you can find great sandstrips and northern Vila do Bispo has fantastic beaches aswell. Otherwise, try the marvellous Lagos beaches and also the huge sandstrips of Loulé!
