The beach here is fantastic, the reason we came back to this resort was the beaches, love how clean they are and soft the sand is. I love smaller beaches which is what you have in this area. Will be coming back.

This beach has a secluded feel, as it only accessable by road at anything other than low tide. It still has working fishermen, with small boats, who can be seen repairing their nets outside of their huts. The bars and resturants are close by, and those that we have used are well worth a visit.

The coastal footpath, offering access to a beautiful beach walk,East. Less crowded than Albufeira itself, though not as pretty.
