Cubsur,your picture above has prompted me to ask you or anybody else that knows, how far you can walk from Inatel along the beach heading eastwards. Can you get to Oura and beyond or do you have to,at some point,come up the cliff/steps for a while. If so where would you say you have to leave the beach?

You can walk as far as Olhos D'Agua for sure at low tide. I have done that in the reverse direction. There is no marked footpath but it is pretty obvious. The going is possiblly a bit difficult in a couple of places scrambling up rocks etc.
 
As far as Oura it's mostly along clifftop paths.
 
Beyond Oura going east, there is one short section where you can only stay at beach level at the lowest point of the tide otherwise it's up and over the cliff to the next beach and and as far as Olhos D' Agua. Then there is another awkward section which would involve a very long inland detour if the sea is high and you get to the next beach which is Praia do Falesia. Walk along that and you eventually brings you to the footbridge across the river and Vilamoura.

Hi Rodger, the photo shows 3 beaches, the first in the foreground is Peneco and on the other side of the rock/cliff sticking out on the left is Fishermens beach. The old town is just behind. In the distance on the other side of the pier is Inatel beach.

Hi RogerD,

The beach you see here ends at Praia do Forte Soa Joao, close to the Aura Mar Beach Club.  Wink 

There is a rocky section (headland) behind the Aura Mar and a small beach called 'Praia dos Aveiros'. Then another rocky section and the start of Praia Da Oura. See it on the interactive beach guide at this link - http://www.albufeira.com/beach/guide/default.asp

The distance from the end of the beach in the photo to Praia Da Oura is only a few hundred meters as the crow flyes.  You can walk over the headland - a bit dicy in places.  By road it would be about a mile or so.

Top of my to do list for next year is the walk from Praia da Oura along the headland, My parents have spent 2 weeks a year for the last 21 years in Praia da Oura & unfortunately due to arthritis my mum isn't able to take the walk any more, but she keeps on at me to do it, So mum if you read this.....i promise OK??

Hi Roger,

Yes. Its a lovely spot. There is a path that leads around the side of the Aura Mar and it brings you directly to Praia do Forte Sao Joao.  Its only a 2 or 3 mimute walk and about 25 steps down to the beach.

I think that there is also direct access from the Aura Mar to Praia dos Aveiros.  Probably more steps though I would think as the hotel is built right on the headland.

Enjoy.
