Eastern Algarve Beaches

Whether a day at the beach falls under the category of “excursions” is open to debate. In any case, in the Eastern Algarve, there is hardly anywhere where you just throw your towel from the back seat of the car onto your lounger. Between the car and the beach, there is usually a walk and a ferry. But when you do arrive…it’s worth it!
