Praia Da Oura

Praia da Oura literally means ‘Golden Beach’ in Portuguese, a fitting name for this stunning, wide stretch along Algarve’s central coast. The beach’s clear, shallow waters and soft sand are all you need for a perfect holiday in the sun. Just east of Albufeira, Praia da Oura is close enough to all the action without compromising its own peaceful nature. Surrounding the blue flag beach are several whitewashed hotels and a commercial centre along the Rua Ramalho Ortigoa. Visitors can stroll along the promenade where there are beach shops full of souvenir ideas, buzzing cafés and seafood restaurants where you can dine on a steaming bowl of arroz de marisco. A wider variety of wining and dining options are just a twenty-minute walk away. Like all the beaches in the area, Praia da Oura has a fantastic selection of water sports on tap including; jet skiing, parasailing, banana boating and water skiing. Visitors also have the opportunity to hire pedal boats and kayaks if they’re feeling adventurous.

If being active is the last thing you want to do on holiday, then you can easily spend your time under an umbrella on a sunlounger, reading, resting and watching the world go by.

Because of its central location, Praia da Oura is a fantastic spot to enjoy day tripping to other nearby sights and attractions. There are medieval cities, cobbled old towns, art galleries, designer shopping and even a chance to swim with dolphins all within an hour’s drive of Praia da Oura.

Two of the most well loved hotels in Praia da Oara are, the Clube Praia Da Oura and the Ouratlantico Apartments. Both hotels enjoy locations near the beach and city centre, have big, beautiful swimming pools and are self-catering.
