MEO Spot Summer Sessions

Beach Parties

Beach parties in the Algarve are an integral part of the summer season with many taking place both locally and further afield in the Algarve.

The parties on the beaches in the Algarve usually only really get started after midnight so be prepared for a late one and also be aware that down by the sea it can be pretty chilly so take that cardigan with you!

Remember that the drink driving limit in Portugal is very low so either make sure you have a designated driver or book yourself a taxi and get a number to call for the return leg.  Taxis are generally very reasonable in their price and sharing one with friends helps to bring the price down even further.

One of the best established beach parties locally can be found at Caneiros beach (between Sesmarias and Ferragudo).

During 2012 the beach parties at Caneiros are held under the rafters of the Rei das Praias beach restaurant and this year the schedule is as follows:

August 3 - Back to the 80s Party.  Dress code 80s

August 17 - Mojito Party.  Dress code Green.

August 31 - Bye Bye Summer Party.  Dress code Tan.

The Caneiros beach parties are held from 9pm until 4am and are a great place to see some local faces enjoying a dance on the sand while are also unforgettable holiday experiences.

Along in Portimão one of the hottest summer tickets is the MEO Spot Summer Sessions, held on the beach in Praia da Rocha but this year with heel friendly surfaces!

This is a pop up summer club and features different club nights throughout August.
