Praia dos Salgados, Beach in Albufeira - Algarve

Covering a large area, Salgados Beach contrasts with the other beaches of Albufeira due its diversity of landscape. Here, the backdrop of ochre cliffs gives way to a cordon of golden dunes.

Beyond the dunes is the Salgados Lagoon, an important stopover for many migrating birds and where a number of protected species nest among the reeds and rushes, including red heron, blue-black grassquits, caimans and curlews

The beach is good for water sports and swimming in addition to surfing and bodyboarding as the sea regularly provides good waves for such activities.
