Oura – 3 times good holidays


To see Visiting Oura – modern beach

Included in Albufeira broad area, this is one of my favorite beaches in Algarve.

​I spent there a good week many years ago, and in my recent visit I kept enjoying the place – the tremendous construction in the area didn’t spoil too much this special place, at least by the sea.


Visiting Oura

If you want to stay close to the life of Albufeira, but in a calmer area with a good beach, Oura is a very interesting option, at walking distance (well… for good walkers!).

​Good facilities and a small parking that works well out of peak season.

Eating in Praia da Oura

Oura 0

I recommend Vivaldo

Eating in Praia da Oura - Vivaldo

Of the three restaurants that border Praia da Oura, Vivaldo is the most competitive. Halfway in terms of price, it uses a 20% discount card policy that tries to retain customers. The discount is only valid for dinner, when the snacks that allow a cheap lunch come out of the menu. We used this restaurant for both meals and liked it. Although simpler, the cheap lunch snacks had quality, and the more elaborate dinner, with the aforementioned discount, was only a little more expensive. Despite the high traffic, the service was reasonable.

Borda de Água



I recommend A terrace that extends along the Oura beach is, for the most part, occupied by this restaurant with Chinese cuisine. Already last year we ate there several times, and we returned this year. The kitchen is unpretentious, but well-kept and varied enough to satisfy a wide range of tastes, including difficult children’s choices. Good price and attentive service.

La Brezza

La Breza

I recommend A little away from the beach, but very close to the most intense nightlife area, this small restaurant serves Italian food to eat in or take away. We ate on site, a good risotto and well served pizzas. Service not very expeditious but friendly, with staff dedicated to serving with sympathy and learning Portuguese. Appropriate price, we will return without reservations, if provided.

Hotels oura

Positive impression Clube Praia da Oura – Well located

Hotels in Oura

I stayed at this apart-hotel more than 20 years ago for a week.

Very good apartments, with excellent location. In my recent visit I noticed that they built some adding, but the whole still keeps a good look (and the location remains excellent).

​I repeated it – twice! Do I need to say more?.

Memories of Oura

More than 20 years later I was back to Oura, and I enjoyed what I saw.

​Algarve was spoilt by heavy construction, and Oura is no exception, but the beach keeps the beauty that makes it one of my favorites in the area.
