Along the path between the handicapped or disabled users' parking places and the beach there are some obstacles, which can only be overcome with other people's help.
The pavement is made of tarmac by the parking lot, changing into cobblestone on the sidewalk. In this transition there is an obstacle, due to the fact that the existing ramp has a high slope rate.
To acceed the beach you will have to cross a bridge over the Quarteira brook (the borderline between the Albufeira and the Loulé municipalities). This bridge has a high slope rate for wheelchair use, so help will be once again needed. The remaining path is made of tarmac and boardwalk floor, granting access to the beach and all the existing facilities without further obstacles. Unfortunately, from the beach tents reserved for the handicapped and disabled users to the place where the beach wheelchair is located (lifeguard post) there is no boardwalk, so help will be needed to request the service.
