Praia da Marinha is a beach in Lagoa, Faro. It is located at 12 kilometers from the city of Portimão. There are 2 parking lots available nearby. And we have some good news, one of them is free and located only 154 meters away. There is one food option available closeby. This beach is as natural as it gets. It's surrounded by nature, making this place excellent if you need to ground and recharge. Don't forget to listen to the nature around you, take it in, as chances are people have walked in the exact same place thousands of years ago!
5 - A must-stop on your holiday to the Algarve

What an incredible beach! The sea stacks and archways dotted throughout make it a great beach for exploring (if you like climbing over rocks through water!) Unfortunately, there had been some high tides prior to our visit meaning there was quite a bit of seaweed, making swimming and walking to the sea less enjoyable. Be aware that many of the tides in the Algarve are also rough and not very suitable for young children.
However, we had a pleasant afternoon on the lovely sandy beach, which was not overcrowded at all. I would also recommend visiting by sea either through one of the boat trips or by hiring a SUP or kayak as this allows better exploration of the caves and archways.
4 - Solid Algarve Beach

Lovely beach and I can confidently say so after visiting several other Algarve beaches which, believe me, are not all amazing. I’m sorry; I know I’m in the minority opinion here. We were not permitted to drive to the car park closest to the beach because it was full (perhaps due to it being a weekend). Getting there required an easy, flat mile walk (but note that it is in the blazing sun). Very steep but manageable stone staircase down to the wide, sandy cliff-backed beach, where there are WCs and a café but no opportunity for renting chairs/umbrellas. Mixed ages. Overall pleasant, albeit crowded, appealing beach.

That's was classified the most beautiful beach in Europe so the best choice it's choosing kayak and sup tours , like Xplorebenagil one of the best company's having tours around Marinha beach.
They do small groups up to 12 people.
And the guides are very good and responsable.
Highly recommended kayak tour with Xplorebenagil
