Warm enough to swim, warmest water we found on our short trip was in Altura. The sand was fine and white. Lovely day at the beach followed by snacks at a gorgeous local snack bar, and then a stroll round the beautiful town.
4 - Long white sand beaches

I read there are 10 kms of fine white sand, and I can easily believe that statement!
Warm sea water, we had 25 degrees throughout the week we were there 😊
The only “bad” thing is that it can be quite windy.
3 - Nice Beach

Nice beach reached along a walkway from the carparks in Alboa. Couple of nice beach bars for a cold one if you fancy one. Beach can be a bit windy. The beach itself is popular and well set up with some beach activity areas. Lifeguards with rescue equipment are on duty during the day. We were a bit annoyed with the beach parasol arrangements - no half days; payment for full day only; front row more expensive than further back - 18€ PD & 13€pd. The attendant expected us to seek him out to pay and was a bit shirty that we didn't and he had to come to us (which is the custom on most beaches). I wondered what he actually does for the money 🤔
