You can relax on 'Praia da Pescadores' or Fisherman's beach where they can still be seen bringing in their catches. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants along the promenade, some with roof terraces overlooking the sea. Many have outdoor seating available for a spot of 'al fresco' dining where you can relax and enjoy a glass of Portuguese wine whilst watching the world go by. The eastern side of Albufeira is lively with busy nightspots. 'The strip' leads down to Oura beach which is a golden sandy beach. In this area , there is a huge range of restaurants and shops which are open through out the evening in the summer.
