Make holiday rental accommodation or a beachfront villa in Salema, Portugal your home away from home

Hidden in a narrow valley in the Vila do Bispo region of western Algarve, Salema is still primarily a working fishing village where brightly coloured fishing boats gleam against the background of fine white sand and azure blue waters. Salema beachfront villas are unlike any other in the Algarve, as Salema really is the last undiscovered beach resort in Portugal. Old fishermen really do sit in the beach mending their nets next to bikini clad tourists soaking up the sun!

Things to do on holiday in Salema, Portugal

Salema is a delightful place to relax. Wandering leisurely through the whitewashed house lined cobbled streets of Salema cannot fail to charm, and there are a handful of excellent little shops, bars and restaurants throughout the village meaning that every whim is catered for. There is also a bustling weekly market from which you can buy fish caught just hours before, extremely fresh vegetables and local crafts. Each morning, fish can be bought from the main square, usually from the back of a small van, so you will never run out of food during your stay in self catering Salema accommodation.

However, most people take Salema accommodation for use of one of the most charming beaches in Portugal, Salema beach. Shaded by steep cliffs, the beach is wide and sandy, and there is always a good spot to relax, sunbathe and swim as the crowds tend to gravitate to the more famous resorts east of Salema. Salema beach is picturesque and unhurried, and there is very little that can beat waking up in a Salema beachfront villa and having breakfast overlooking the ocean. Salema beach, Portugal does provide lifeguards and warning flags for bathers. There is a wonderfully secluded beach just 15 minutes from Salema accommodation too, the Praia do Castelejo, although there really is no reason to leave the vicinity of your Salema beachfront villa. Body Boards, fishing rods, canoes and windsurfing equipment can all be hire directly from the beach too.

Scuba diving is particularly popular from a beachfront villa in Salema, as there is the wreck of a French Man of War lying just 300m offshore, and there are regular dives over the wreck available.

Places to visit on holiday in Salema, Portugal

Very nice townhouse

We had a lovely stay. The house was so well equipped and comfortable. The pool was great. It was very quiet and peaceful and we usually had the pool to ourselves.
