The Algarve beaches of Portugal are some of the finest beaches in southern Europe. The deep red colour of the sand stone cliffs can be quite spectacular, particularly at sunset. Here are just a few top choice beaches close to Figs on the Funcho. Olhos da Aqua beach is a sandy blue flag beach, ideal for small children as all the facilities are close by. Albufeira’s beautiful golden sandy beaches, Praia do Túnel and Praia dos Pescadores are a popular choice, with lots of restaurants and coffee shops. The colourful Algarve fishing boats can be found on Praia dos Pescadores (Fisherman’s beach) and if you get there early in the mornings you can watch the fishermen bring in their catch for the local restaurants.
