Visited Praia Gale today. Beautiful beach without all the over development. Nice place to enjoy the day. Had lunch in one of the beach side restaurants and it was good view and good food.

Gentle sandy beach,with amazing rock pools and sandstone pillar rocks. Plenty of food and drink outlets and a fresh fruit seller. Easy stroll from bus stop 13 on the open top bus tour.
