Holidays to Praia da Gale showcase some of the best of the Algarve, with golden sands and turquoise waters.

Paradise found

Nestled on Portugal's southern Algarve coast, Praia da Gale has a five-kilometre sweep of sand. You'll find parasols and loungers here, as well as a few restaurants nearby – not to mention those famous sandstone cliffs. It's a great spot for kids, sunbathers and swimmers alike.

Just cruising

The Algarve coastline's full of sights, so it's a prime spot for sailing. Most operators leave from Albufeira's marina. Check out some of the caves and grottos around Praia de Benagil, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for dolphins.

Party hearty

The bright lights of Albufeira are under a 20-minute drive away. Here, action-packed afternoons roll into lively bar-hopping nights. Start with a sightseeing stroll through the whitewashed town centre, then finish off with dinner and cocktails at a seafront restaurant.
