This is a beautiful beach, next to a very nice village, largely untouched by the urban sprawl in nearby Algarve. Popular for surfing, but also great for just sunbathing. It has been awarded a "blue flag" which in Portugal means it's one of the best beaches, clear water, clean sand, and nice facilities. The scenery is gorgeous, like most beaches... More

Fantastic beach, Very nice view and very nice water and sand. There are two masseurs on the beach if you feel like! The car parking is not very easy.

Great for surfing, with cafés and bars and wifi available. Getting bit crowded after lunch, but still not as commercial as the well known touristy spots.

You have to arrive early in the morning, or else you end up walking miles to park your car! This beach was considered one of the best in the area. Big, with nice waves and a great river - you may try to go all the way to the beach with your kayak if the tide is on your side!... More

Lovely beach - quite busy in peak time but understandably so. Beautiful clean sand and fascinating rock pools over by the rocks.

Most people who come here have done so for years now. This beach has a little something for everyone, from surfers to families with kids. It's a blue flag beach with its very own unique "rituals", like the tourist train taking people from the village to the beach and the "closing of the beach" at the end of the day.

Not so easy to park the car. The solution is to arrive early or walk a bit more. You also have the river side to park your car and go to the beach.

If you like large beaches with plenty of sand to walk and play beach-sports, this is the place. Very well located near a small town.
