Hit the beach
If you want to get an all-over tan, head to Praia do Homem Nu – one of the few official naturist beaches in Albufeira. Due to its remote location – it can only be reached by the tourist train from Pedras D´el Rei or by crossing the footbridge over the Ria – this beach isn’t very popular, meaning you’ll always be able to find the perfect spot to soak up the sun. Unfortunately, also due to its secluded nature, there are no facilities available.

If you’re in the mood for fish or seafood, be sure to visit A Lagosteira, where you’ll find several Portuguese and international dishes available. The restaurant’s speciality is the fresh shellfish which are kept alive in an aquarium. For those who don’t fancy fish, there is also a selection of high quality meats available, each of which is grilled on a charcoal barbecue.
