Sao Rafael Beach

Sao Rafael Beach was voted Best Beach in Portugal by onbeach.com This is the nearest beach to the resort - It’s about an 8-10 minute walk and is absolutely beautiful with very nice bar/snack bar and up market restaurant on the beach.


Words can not express the beauty of this beach - It is literally unbelievable.  The website  recently voted São Rafael Beach in Albufeira as the 4th best beach in Europe and the best in Portugal in its top 5 beaches classification. The site which gives detailed information on thousands of beaches all over the world, chose São Rafael because of its “magnificent natural setting, consisting of rocks and cliffs,fine white sand and crystal clear waters in a pretty shade of pale blue“.

Wine & Dine on the ‘best beach in Portugal ! Beautiful restaurant, specialising in fish (they also have a selection of meat). It’s a magnificent setting. On the other side / adjoining – you have a beach snack bar, have an ice cream or a cool beer ! 

There are also very nice deck chairs to laze away the day if that is what you need. This is without doubt one of the nicest places you will ever be so just relax and take it all in.
