Holidays to Praia do Vau
Known for its beautiful sandy beach, which is popular with tourists, this little resort is the perfect place for a quiet holiday with the family, and what it lacks in cultural history, it makes up for in its proximity to popular Algarvian towns. Alvor is a 30 minute walk away, and has a variety of cultural sites including 2 churches and some prehistoric tombs, while Praia da Rocha is a popular nightlife destination with plenty of bars.
Praia da Vau
Small and picturesque, the local beach is made up of small pebbles and sand, while the water is clear and enticing.
Praia do Alemão
To the west of Praia do Vau lies this quieter beach surrounded by cliffs eroded into arches, caves and grottos.

From the beaches of Praia dos Salgados and Santa Eulália to the Old Town, this city is well worth a visit.
