There is a new broad walk that runs from the church above the town , where there is also ample parking for those that drive. Take the left road at the beach to the church if you are walking up the hill and head along the broad walk. The broad walk is suitable for any age. Around half way along... More

Excellent walk, easy going along the boardwalk, interesting for kids to go down the stairs and walk towards the cliff where people jump off to dive into the sea.

We stayed here so the Bistro was our "local". The food is well prepared and they have a lunch and evening menu which was both fresh and nicely cooked. Special mention to Zara and Andre who were excellent hosts and very friendly to our family

Having stumbled across a board walk we found some steps leading into the rocks, so naturally off we went. What amazing views! There are steps leading all the way through the rocks leading to some amazing views of the sea. Excellent little adventure and lots of great photo opportunities. Definitely have a wander down if you're close by

This restaurant is a must to visit if only for its position. The food is good and copious, but the service is very slow! (Luckily there are marvellous cliffs to enjoy while you wait.

We stumbled across this boardwalk whilst out walking so we decided to walk along it as it looked cool and what a surprise we had in store. It goes for maybe 1.5km along the cliff tops offering some amazing views, to put surprise around 1/2 way we could walk onto the cliffs, then even more amazing there were stairs cut... More

Great place to spend an hour climbing in and out of caves. It is a very peaceful spot with fewer tourists than the beach. It is a nice little getaway. Plan to spend an hour or more. Great place to watch the sunset. Gotta love Portugal!

Great place to see some amazing rock formations. Very exposed so need to be sure footed to get out on the rocks but a really good boardwalk along the top of the cliffs for the less able/adventurous/with small kids etc Spoilt only by the rubbish other people have left behind!
