If you want a break away from the madness of praia da oura this can be one option, 10 minutes by taxi, its a nice visit, with little restaurants lining the top of the beach.

There is a huge supermarket- Apolinas which is quite expensive but they do a takeaway menu which is fantastic value and definately worth trying. We stayed in villa magali-... More

The beach is lovely and sandy and lots of rocks where you can shade from the sun. The only draw back was rocks on the shore line where you couldn't see them and kids running in can hurt themselves, as well as us adults!
