Things to do

Praia da Gale Oeste:

The Gale Oeste beach is a long stretch of golden sand with a backdrop of soft dunes. A beach restaurant takes care of hunger and thirst, and sun beds are available. One unique offer: special dune buggies are available to help bring disabled visitors to the beach.

Praia da Gale Leste:

Another one of Gale's beaches, the Gale Leste is characterised by rocky outcrops and sheltered coves. This beach is a bit more secluded than the others, making it a good option for those craving some rest and relaxation. There are two beach restaurants here.

Zoomarine:

This marine life park is found in the town of Guia, about six miles from Albufeira and Gale. Seal and dolphin shows are held regularly throughout the year, a 4D cinema shows films pertaining to marine life, and there are a number of swimming pools and snack bars to ensure a full and fun day out.

Albufeira Old Town:

This part of Albufeira is located near the Fisherman's Beach. It is full of cosy cafés and restaurants, and the narrow cobblestone streets and whitewashed buildings exemplify the old style of this region. The Clock Tower, the symbol of Albufeira, is also located here. There are also numerous shops selling local goods as well as everyday necessities.

The Albufeira Strip:

The ever-popular Sao Joao sector of Albufeira is the place to go for those who want to eat, drink, and dance. This hot spot is popular with locals and tourists alike. The strip is lined with all kinds of bars, clubs, and restaurants, making it a fun destination.

Sebastião Church:

The 18th-century church of St. Sebastian in Albufeira is not only a place of worship, but also home to the Museum of Sacred Art. Visitors can see 16th-century stone sculptures, a large collection of paintings, and wooden icons of saints. It is also a nice place to beat the heat on a hot summer day.

We will certainly be returning again.

The standard of the villa was very high throughout and a couple of minor issues were very quickly resolved by the agent and owner. Can't fault it and can't think how it could be improved - except perhaps it would have been nice to have had instruction on how to switch the pool heating off for the odd hour of silence since it is a little noisy and grates after a few days. Already missing cooking on the BBQ with a mini-preta whilst watching the kids enjoying a swim! Local beaches and restaurants are superb (the restaurants that the locals use rather than the ones the tourists use). Anyone staying in this area should eat at least once in Ze Leitero in Amacao de Pera, and I've been to beaches all over the world and can't think of a better one for kids than between the rocks on the east of Gale beach.
