Lovely beach, spectacular, a pleasure to sunbathe, enjoy the sun and look at the scenery. Very busy in August, as even though it is far from the busy resorts, lots of Portugese families drive here. When you get the the stairs, turn left or right and walk a couple of minutes, the crowd will disappear and much less people will... More

clean beach. Busy on the morning but quieter after 2pm. Took free bus from Vale de Carros. Would have been quite a walk without it

Fabulous for families and couples..views are beautiful and although very busy in August still a relaxing ambience in the area. Ideal family beach holiday location and good value for money in the surrounding area especially if you drive a few mikes inland.

Beautiful beach - definitely visit ! Fab for families - beach side café great with lots of snack / meal options and lovely ice creams. The on beach loungers and parasols will cost 18 euros to hire for the day - or take your own umbrellas.

One of the best in Algarve, it's very big, so you can choose areas with more people or areas that you are almost alone. There's not a lot of restaurants to back up all the beach so if you are not going to stay near one just take your food .

It is the most spectacular beach in the area. Maybe Lagos can equal, but it has the advantage of not being so crowded .

Being from Ireland I'm familiar with good beaches but this is one of the most picturesque I've been been on,sometimes very busy but big and long enough to cope,safe for kids as it seems you need to walk out for ever before it gets deep,though it's still the Atlantic so chilly and hard to get into.

Lovely beach just a stones throw from Olhos D'Agua Village. When the tides out can walk there around the rocks. Can also walk along the beach to Vilamoura but it's quite a distance. we gained access through the Sherraton Hotel ( better known as the Pines)
