Vale do Garrão
Vale Garrão is a tourist area in the Municipality of Loulé, between Praia do Garrão Nascente and Praia do Garrão Poente.

In its surrounding West and Sunset are two lagoons, wetlands of fresh water (a rarity in the coastline), surrounded by dispersed spots of pine forest and very frequented by waterfowl.
The gastronomy in Vale Garrão is similar to the rest of the Algarve. It is based on fresh fish, seafood and also some meat making. The fish is very varied and we can highlight the sargo, monkfish, swordfish, sole, red mullet, sea bream, hake, gilt, ferreira, rooster fish, horse mackerel, sardines, among others. In addition to the fish, there are some marine invertebrates such as octopus, squid and cuttlefish, which are of great importance in the feeding of this area. The most consumed seafood is shrimp, crab, santola, oysters, mussels and perceives, which are eaten cooked with enough salt, or baked on the plate, if they are bivalves. As regards meat, it is possible to refer to pork, rabbit and hare, which constitute a kinergic resource in this area. Regional sweets are based on almond, fig, gila and eggs, so the characteristic beverages are arbutus brandy and fig brandy.
Both beaches are supervised and concessioned, have rental of awnings and two zones for motorized water sports. The great concentration of bars and restaurants gives them privileged conditions, being much sought after.
Set in a tourist region, cosmopolitan and equipped with excellent infrastructure, Vale Garrão is one of the luxurious references of the Algarve.

Its location near the Atlantic, as well as the proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, give it unique characteristics that have repercussions in areas as diverse as leisure, gastronomy and tourism. These are the same characteristics that justify the mild climate, the sunny days for most of the year, as well as the pleasant temperature of the sea.
