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.

Peace and tranquility and a great apartment.

Great apartment in a lovely area. Small private gated development with a heated pool and very good restaurants close by. We will definitely book again.

Wonderful quiet villa in a fabulous location!

5 of 5
We had a great stay in Gale. The villa was absolutely lovely. Spotlessly clean when we arrived and a few handy starter items to get you settled including a nice cold beer! The villa is literally right next to the beach, and there were some fantastic sunsets to be seen on an evening walk. The owner, Manuel, could not have done more to make you feel welcome, and was on hand for local knowledge and support. He checked in with us regularly without being intrusive, and the villa and pool were both cleaned a few times during our stay. We do hope to be returning again one day in the future for another relaxing break, and thank you Manuel for everything!
