Balaia is a secluded village resort located on a quiet stretch of the coastline between Albufeira and Vilamoura. Surrounded by a natural landscape of pine and almond trees, and with two superb beaches, it's the ideal destination to enjoy a relaxed, easy paced holiday to the Algarve.
The traditional Spanish village feel of Balaia exudes laid-back with its pretty whitewashed houses and coastline of quiet, sandy beaches and rugged cliffs. The superb local golf course makes it popular with golfers, and the relaxed, friendly atmosphere makes it an ideal spot for couples and families with children.
There are two pristine Blue Flag awarded beaches here offering sparkling clean sea and all the facilities you'll need to make your holiday beach days relaxed and lots of fun.
Santa Eulalia beach is in a popular cove surrounded by palm trees and cliffs. With shallow water at the shoreline it's perfect for children to paddle and play in and there's plenty of space to spread out your beach towel and sunbathe. There are several restaurants and bars dotted around the beachside, so you can grab some snacks, lunch or a cool drink throughout the day.
Praia da Maria Luisa is a quieter beach with a charming little beachside bar where you can linger over a drink while you take in the sea views. Along this stretch you'll also find several small rock pools to explore.
