Gale Beach

A Wide Beach in Albufeira


The Gale beach is a lovely beach with wide spaces. It has open areas in the western end and with rocky formations in the eastern side and it is formed with white sand and clear water. This beach is in a calm part of Algarve, where you will find mainly villas. The access is very easy even if you go there by car. This is a perfect beach to have your family holidays, with space for the children to play and, in the western part, rocks to explore. It is usually frequented by families.

This beach is placed in a calm part of Algarve with small buildings and if you go a bit more to the inland you will have a beautiful rural landscape. Nevertheless, you have in this area some points of interest. If you go some kilometres to the north, you have the Shopping Center of Algarve in Guia, beside the EN125. Still in Guia you have the famous Frango da Guia (Chicken of Guia) in several restaurants. Very near to the beach you have the Salgados Golf Course where you can play golf, if you like.
