Praia d’Oura is approximately two miles east of Albufeira. Not many years ago Praia d’Oura did not exist as a holiday resort, but nowadays is a thriving resort in its' own right providing a good range of shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Several of these can be found along the lively area known as 'The Strip'.
At the end of 'The Strip' a steep hill leads down to Praia d'Oura’s well known 'Golden Beach' with a wonderful expanse of golden sands, with an abundance of cafes and beach bars overlooking the sea.
Praia d’Oura is a perfect choice relaxing on the beach or enjoying the watersports such as windsurfing, water-skiing, jet skis and a banana boat ride along Praia d’Oura’s 'Golden Beach'. For those that like walking, Albufeira can be reached along the coast. Praia d’Oura is a suitable holiday resort for all ages especially the young at heart with its varied night life.
