Beautiful beach accessed by a rugged track and steps from hotels on the cliffs. Need an umbrella for shade, quite shallow and perfect for small children to splash in, although against the high temperature the water feels quite cool initially. The beach itself is a wide expanse that is flat and soft orange sand.

It's quite a nice beach, the cliffside is a very nice view and the beach itself is quite nice as well.

Very beautiful beach . The chairs are overpriced, but necessary. The water is clean and cool. The cliffs are beautiful.

We used the part of the beach were the Pine Cliffs Resort was but my sister went to Falesia Beach and we both thought that it was a beautiful beach and had a lot of fun paddling in it.

A very nice and long beach with warmer waters than the rest of Portugal. It is also good for a walk along the water line.

I stayed fairly near by and often walked to this beach. The sand is lovely and the beach is clean. There are beds and umbrellas but they were expensive so we just used the sand. Waves make this a good area for body boarding , but it seems a safe place to swim in too. I also walked to Villamoura... More

Really nice beach. Large enough to find a decent place even in high season. We parked in one of the residences 300m away from the beach. The last 50m there is a stairway, which brought us safely down the cliff. Lifeguards on duty, but no showers.

Lovely, clean, beautiful beach, lovely water, good waves, unspoiled, not commercialised just a scatter of beach bars, rock pools up the end an attraction for the children. Dramatic cliff backdrop, a long way up though via steps, so put your walking shoes on, its worth it.

This was voted best beach in Portugal 2 years in a row (2013-14), this year it made second place. But irrespective of these rankings, the beach is delightful. Over 5km of pristine golden sand, always breezy, lovely water and not too full of people. Will go back again.
