The best beaches for a romantic stroll
As mentioned, the beaches in the Algarve are simply stunning! Walk hand in hand as the sun shines and the waves lap peacefully on the shore.
The golden sands of Praia do Garrão will provide a romantic day at the beach. Or, if you'd prefer some fun with your significant other, it also offers water activities like pedalo's and canoes! The range of beach front restaurants and bars, like Julia's, means you can stop for a bite to eat or a refreshing drink.
Praia da Quinta do Lago will not disappoint if you want to relax. It is located in front of the Ria Formosa, providing a lovely walk to and from the beach.
If you're looking for a more vibrant beachfront vibe, with lots of bars and restaurants, Quarteira beach offers this in spades! Alternatively, you could make your way to Praia de Vilamoura. This leads to Vilamoura’s famous marina, where there is plenty to do including boat trips.
