Situated in front of the resort town of Oura, Praia da Oura is the town’s wonderful beach area. It is part of the larger and very popular Albufeira region of the Algarve and is never short on exciting things to do. The beach itself is accessible, has blue-flag status and stretches out for about 2km - all the way along to neighbouring Praia dos Olhos d’Agua.

The most popular period in Praia da Oura is the spring to autumn period with temperatures often climbing to the low and mid-30s during these months. The temperatures drop to around the mid-teens in the winter months and while there will still be a few things to do in the off-season, Praia da Oura doesn’t see the same level of activity as the summer. Because it is a beach resort as well, we definitely recommend a trip during the summer months.
The beach at Praia da Oura is by far its main attraction and it is little wonder why. Soft sands, plenty of space, calm waters and a promenade with beach cafes, restaurants and bars are just some of the features of this wonderful location. The resort is also located in a fantastic place; just a short journey from the town of Oura for grabbing all of the essentials on your holiday and from the lively centre of Albufeira. Praia da Oura is a very laid-back resort but if you fancy somewhere more party-focused, you have arguably the best place in Portugal right on your doorstep.
Because it is not the largest resort that the Algarve has to offer, the accommodation options in Praia da Oura can feel quite limited compared to other places. However, there are still some great places to choose from including smaller hotels and self-catered apartments and villas. Most of the restaurants in this resort are located along the beachfront and enjoy sea views. For a greater selection of both accommodation and dining, you might want to head towards Albufeira.
