Praia do Vau
Praia do Vau is one of the Algarve’s best kept secrets. This small holiday resort has an unhurried pace of life and a modest amount of amenities, yet is home to one of the best beaches in the area.
Sandstone cliffs shelter and contain a crescent shaped bay. The peaceful beach is a vast expanse of soft golden sands, ideal for soaking up the Algarvian sun. Praia do Vau’s waters are clear and sparkling and are perfectly safe for paddling children.
The town itself has just a few restaurants, but the contemporary facilities and non-stop entertainment of Praia da Rocha are just a short bus or taxi ride away. Alternatively, those on a Praia do Vau holiday could spend time enjoying the traditional fishing village setting of nearby Alvor.
