Salema is a small town with a long history as a fishing village.
Central to the beach is the boat launch, where you’ll often see fisherman tending to their boats or their nets.
Along the small streets you’ll find cafés, bars and cosy restaurants. For the active there’s some stunning clifftop walks to really get a feel for the west Algarve.
