Welcome to A Maré

The Maré is a family owned guest house offering traditional Algarve bed and breakfast accommodation and self-catering apartments.    We are situated right in the heart of the quaint fishing village of Salema, enjoying spectacular views over the white sandy beach to the ocean beyond.

Salema is located in the Western Algarve, surrounded by Natural Park and sits directly on a coveted Blue Flag award winning beach at the  edge of the Atlantic Ocean.  It is one of very few communities that still launch their brightly coloured fishing boats from the beach to catch the local sea bass, bream, sardines and octopus which can be enjoyed later that evening in one of Salema's many quality restaurants.

The beach is very gently sloping which makes it ideal for swimming and safe for children.  It is a fantastic setting for an early morning stroll before breakfast.  A lifeguard service is provided at designated areas of the beach in the summer months.

There are a dozen bar / restaurants in Salema, a couple of gift shops, two mini markets to purchase your provisions and a couple of ATM's for your banking needs.  Salema also has an activity outlet located directly off the beach from where you can hire kayaks and paddle boards,  organise boat trips, arrange a game of golf at the local course, horse riding trails and walking tours.  Tickets for the main water park in Lagoa can also be purchased there.

There are also many sightseeing opportunities and places to visit around Salema.  Days away from the beach can be had with the walled marina town of Lagos that lies to the east; and the historic town of Sagres with its fortress that lies to the west, both of which are only a 10 to 15-minute drive away and are on the local bus route which stops directly in front of The Maré.
