10 of the best beach bars and cafes in Europe: readers’ tips

Our tipsters pick beach bars for lazy days, fantastic seafood and one last cold beer near the airport before flying home

A short boat ride from the town of Olhão, on the quiet side of the Algarve, is the island of Armona. After a walk along the beach path to the far side of the island, you are greeted by a sign for Camaleão Beach Bar that says “Welcome to Paradise” – but it’s better than that.

Great cocktails and Portuguese beers at low prices make it even better. Stagger back across the island to catch the last boat home.
