Salema Holidays
Salema - the best kept secret in the Western Algarve

Click for Sagres, Portugal Forecast

A delightful fishing village lying midway between Sagres and Lagos in the Western Algarve, Portugal.


Salema - voted 2nd Best Beach in Portugal

The coveted ' Blue Flag' award shows that the water meets all European standards of cleanliness. It has also been voted 2nd best beach in Portugal by a European Travel magazine.

A typical Portuguese village with its wide, sheltered bay making the long stretch of beach ideal for swimming.

The beach, with its indigenous fishing fleet of traditional brightly coloured boats, is a delight to behold - their catches of bream, mackerel, sardines and sea bass often appearing in the local restaurants the same day.
