Lovely position and very helpful staff who had to cope with 4 adults, a 3 year old, and a 3 month old babe in arms. They coped admirably. Snack food was great to suit all tastes, but a subsequent visit for dinner one evening came up a little short.

Beautiful beach with ocean carved rock formations. Great for long, very enjoyable walks. There were no negatives. Nice waterfront, casual restaurant right on the beach.

Beautiful place we stayed last year and its quiet enough to be away from the noisy night life but near enough so you can sample it if you want. Two brilliant beaches and one a family friendly beach too.

Excellent beach and restaurants , parking is bad if your stopping at the local hotel, with everyone coming to the beach not a lot of parking, even your hotel space goes!! Fresh fruit stall by the beach and a handy fashion market stall, good prices

Very popular with the locals with a lovely cafe on the front served by very friendly staff with snacks and drinks. Just right to get out of the hot sun. A stunning sandy beach with many coves for peace and quiet.

Went to this place in Feb 2015 by bus and had to take the family back in June, they were not disappointed. The sand is so fine and the sandstone rocks are stunning. A great beech to visit.

Lovely long beach that stretches for miles. Never over crowed as its so big, parking in peak season at summer can be a challenge

We hired a car last week during our stay in Armaco de Pera and with the help of sat nav and" Freemaps"set off one afternoon for the nearby town of Gale. The sat nav took us to car park A. No sign of the town. We followed the sign to Restaurante Praia Lourenco and after a minutes walk we came... More

You can walk for miles on golden sand here, and the beach bars are great too. 15 euros for 2 sunbeds and a brolly and windbreak.
