We love beaches!

Great beach, so pleased it won an award. Breathtaking when the weather is good. We sat and watched the world go by, so peaceful.

Visited in early March 2015 in beautiful sunny warm (to us, it was 5C and rainy at home) 20C weather, almost no wind. Incredible stretch of clean sand with a backing of very colourful red/yellow/white cliffs which gave the beach its name. My wife and I are not beach people at all but this one was so stunning and attractive,... More

Great beach quiet when we went in February but great views. Be careful not to get caught out by the quickly turning tides!!

Beautiful, long stretch of beach. We stopped and had drinks at one of the beach cafes, then walked into Villamoura. I never seen such a swathe of clean sand.

This was our favourite beach on the Algarve. Miles of beautiful sand backed by stunningly attractive cliffs which fortunately keep it unspoiled. Visiting on a beautiful February day we had no trouble parking and were able to walk miles with only a handful of people about. Why go anywhere else, when in just over 2 hrs flying time from England... More

Why would I fly further on a plane when the beaches of the algarve are only 2.5hrs away. Although in February many beach bars are not open there are still a couple where you can sit and enjoy a meal and drink and say " we cannot believe we are doing this in February " A favourite is the Thai...

So we had a tent and spent an amazing autumn night on this beach. I'd say it's quite private, people rarely were passing by.

Visiting Faro and my couchsurfing host took me here. absolutely amazing scenery. Not accessible without car I think...the entire Algarve region requires a car to be fully enjoyed. No idea how good the bus transport is. Visited in early January and the beach is completely empty..very pleasant weather though. Guess winter is the best time to visit!! Unspoiled and clean... More
