The Albufeira Lagoon is located in a dune system, The lagoon has an approximate area of 155 ha, presenting an elongated shape and being constituted by two lagoon areas denominated by bid lagoon and small lagoon. Both are connected by a narrow, winding channel called the Crow's Beak.
The Lagoa Grande is separated from the sea by a sandy barrier. At the spring equinox, it is usually artificially opened a single bar. In winter, during strong thunderstorms, the bar can open naturally. In the zones of the coast there is an area of dunes. The banks of the lagoon have relatively smooth, steeper slopes in the north.
