About the Beach

What is Praia dos Medos de Albufeira Beach?

It's an Oceanic Beach in the northern hemisphere bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, located on the coast of Portugal - Iberian Peninsula - in the municipality of Sesimbra.

Praia dos Medos da Albufeira Beach has a very long sand of about 2,1 Km. The orange of the 1 intersects the green vegetation both at the bottom and top of the cliff.
It's a quite remote beach, sought for those who enjoy privacy and contact with nature.
The access is done by a trail on the cliff top that begins near the N.A.T.O. (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) military base or through a walk on the sand since 2, if coming from south.
