I think there are a lot of folks that don't realise how rough the sea on the Algarve can be even in July and August - it aint the Med! It can be fearsome! I found out from experience! As previously stated somewhere, I was completely thrown off my feet in Praia da Rocha two or three years ago by a wave that didnt even seem that bad, embarrassingly for my 15 year old son at the time I lost me bikini top!! Anyway, I was pretty shaken by it to be honest and am wary now! The shore at Albufeira shelves steeply, one minute you are up to your knees, the next gone!!
2013 - oh no 50!!

Here's what's waiting for you. Picture taken on Saturday. Rather more exposed rocks down this end that I remember from last year.

Too far east for me and my missus, the foreground of your first piccie is our recreation area for the duration... relaxation, relaxation, relaxation is our holiday keywords Big%20smile
I gotta say though, looking at at your first picture the beach looks narrower than in previous years?  It might just be an illusion created by your camera/lens combination though.

Jayjan it's not Oura, the headland there juts out too far to see past, but it could be Aveiros,

It's the Praia do Inatel - you can see the white Inatel building in the centre of the picture with the pier and old town beyond.
 
I think the actual bit of beach I was standing on is called Praia do Forte de Sao Joao or something like that. Behind me is the set of steps you climb up to go round the cliff to Aveiros beach.

That sounds spot on, nice stretch of beach, nice walk and some different sights that you would not know were there from the beach road, if you know what I mean,
