Hi,

I am off to Portugal on holiday in May. I am staying in Albufeira (30 minutes from Faro airport).

Does anyone have any info, on beaches to go to or what the conditions are like ?

Your help would be most appreciated.

Thanks .. Pete.

well, it's been a while ... but the coastline's not too good. especially for unexerienced riders.


most of the beaches are very very small

HI ,

I've been there a few weeks a go, in Faro you can kiteboard on the lagoon or at sea. Mostly the wind is offshore there so the local guys there are all on the lagoon. It's verry small and crowded.
But if you drive 20 km past Faro direction Albufera, you can go to the beach at Villamoura richt side of the harbour, nice beach and nice waves. The wind is sideshore at that spot. No crowds there.

Greetings,

Roy

A message for Joao, what beaches are good near Albufeira, and can you buy kitesurfing equipment anywhere (just in case I break anything) ?
