In the Algarve, around-the-clock fun is the norm, especially during the summer months when the beach bars fill with locals and tourists. Many venues serve as snack bars by day, providing cool drinks and shaded retreats from the hot sun, but become more lively as the sun sets, preparing party-hoppers for the night ahead. Here is a quick roundup of the hottest beach bars worth checking out in Portugal’s liveliest region.
Fancy a side of stunning cliffs and alcoves with your meal or drink? Not only is Caniço a fantastic restaurant with unparalleled ambiance but it is also a great place for a party, especially a wedding. Located in the Prainha in Alvor, their menu relies heavily on seafood and fish, as you’d expect with its seaside location, and at night the beach bar turns into a dance club with the sand as its dance floor.
On the Vilamoura Beach, across from the Tivoli Marina 5-star hotel, you’ll find the club called Purobeach Vilamoura, where guests can rent sun-loungers and order drinks, right on the beach while listening to music. Sure, this isn’t your typical beach bar, but it offers an exclusive experience that many visitors will love.
NoSoloÁgua can actually be found in three popular locations: Vilamoura, Albufeira, and the Marina de Portimão. Visit during the day for coffee and snacks, at lunch or dinner for a light and fresh meal, or stop by at night when the music starts pumping and the drinks are flowing.
