Nothing beats arriving in Salema on holiday. Following what seems like a secret path leading to a magical seaside, the way the ocean hits when you drop over the brow is stunning. And that’s it. You’re in beautiful Salema.
Salema’s humble charm is its ultimate appeal. The proud Portuguese fishing tradition is obvious, with small, bright wooden boats dotted across the beach, lovingly tinkered by sun-beaten fishermen who set sail in the evening and return the following morning with the fruits of their labour when the catch is whisked off to market. Fishermen mix happily with holidaymakers as they unravel their nets and get ready to go again when sun sets. This is what makes Salema so unique and so special. This is Portugal and the Algarve at its finest.
The wide, blue-flag, golden sandy beach is probably where you’ll spend the most time during your holiday in Salema, yet we do recommend exploring the local area, including neighbouring beaches, Lagos and the rugged west coast. The historic western Algarve is waiting to be discovered.
Villas in Salema, Algarve
Another of Salema’s great traditions is the splattering of tiny, whitewashed fisherman’s cottages, which form the heart of the village. As much as Salema is the land that time forgot, these homes, proudly lived in by generations of local families, now sit alongside luxury villas, built in sympathy with their aged counterparts. And this is where Simply Salema come in by offering guests modern holiday accommodation, in old-fashioned Salema.
