We loved this beach!. Great for long walks, great for surf and great with a warmer swim area where the river meets the ocean. It has a small bar as well with beach chairs, snacks and drinks. We where here almost in peak season and there was no more that 300 people on this huge beach.

Beautiful sandy beach, much quieter than Amado. Acres of smooth sand to wander down. Can be cold with the wind though so bring a wind breaker and there are no toilets

Like all it's neighbouring beach, it has its tranquility and beauty. The waves are perfect for those who are just starting their adventure in body boarding. It's either you're on honeymoon, with your friends or family. This beach is for everyone.

Wonderful sand dunes modelled by Atlantic Ocean. Bordeira beach is a playground that stretches long, long. I love the walks by the frigid ocean, where hot sand gets cold enough to refresh your feet.

The beach has lots of sand dunes it is unexpected as the the cliffs surrounding it are rocky. A true delight!

The beach is prestine. Gold and fine sand, cold water and huge waves. If you don't surf is only to see because can be windy and also cold. The worst thing that happened to us is when we came back to the car they had stolen EVERYTHING from the car. As many people go from one part of Algarve to... More

A few hundred meters from the parking. Bring your own food as there is nothing near the beach. A few surfers' schools practising there every day. Enjoy!

Walk to the dunes, walk through the seaside and let go. Perfect place to relax with stunning views from the sunset. You can find a lot of trash due to dirty tourists, but still one of the best beaches in Algarve.
