Praia de Odeceixe is a beach in the Municipality of Aljezur, Algarve, Portugal. The beach is on the western Seaboard in the extreme north west of the Algarve. It is inside the Vicentine Coast Natural Park. The beach is 2.1 miles (3.4 km) west of the village of Odeceixe, and is 77.9 miles (125.4 km) north west, by road, from the region’s capital of Faro.

The main beach of Praia de Odeceixe is located at the mouth of the Rio Seixe (River Seixe). Praia de Odeceixe’s location is right on the border between the Algarve and the Alentejo. This sandy beach is on the southern side of the outflow to the sea. The northern side of the river has a backdrop of steep cliffs which shelter the beach. To the south of the main beach is a small cove with a sandy satellite beach called Praia de Adegas which has been designated a naturalist beach. Also to the south of the main beach is the small village at Praia de Odeceixe, from where a steep path descends to the beach.
