Coelha, Algarve - Resort Guide

Located approximately 5 Km West of Albufeira, Coelha is a pretty beach nestled between golden cliffs, with a charming beachside restaurant, serving tasty meals with fresh ingredients from the local market. Coelha is a relatively small beach so you may want to also discover the nearby family friendly beaches of Castelo, So Rafael or Gal, only a few minutes drive away.

Most of our villas are located in the quiet countryside area of Coelha, within walking distance to the beach and afford stunning Atlantic Ocean views. Coelha offers a few local shops and restaurants, whilst the bustling resort of Albufeira is only a short drive away, offering further choice in eating, drinking and shopping venues to keep everyone happy.

Albufeira is known for its fantastic sandy beaches and sizzling nightlife with many restaurants, bars and clubs open until the small hours of the day. Here the colourful and modern marina contrasts with the traditional whitewashed houses, the narrow cobbled streets, lined with restaurants, bars, cafs and shops that can be found in Albufeiras old town. If you are looking for further nightlife entertainment, you should head towards the Strip located near Oura beach, considered by many the hub of Albufeiras nightlife scene.

A 10 minute drive inland will take you to the charming village of Guia, popular for its chicken piri-piri restaurants, and the Algarve Shopping, a modern shopping centre with an excellent range of shops, cafs and restaurants. You can also enjoy the dolphins, seals and sea lions shows at the nearby ZooMarine ocean park.

For the keen golfers, Salgados is the nearest golf course only 5 minutes drive away, but within a 20-30 minutes drive, you will find some of the best golf courses in Europe, located in Vilamoura to the east, and in Alcantarilha to the west.
