It's not that far from Faro and it's worth the visit! Beautiful beach. The rocks are amazing! I went during winter, imagine how crowded it must get during summer.

Stunning beach. Amazing and beautiful rock formations. We pretty much had it all to ourselves. The water however was as cold as ice.

Picturesque, sandy beach, with beautiful rock cliffs. But the WC and restaurant end of October was closed. Some times with small children that is a problem.

Park on the cliff top and walk down the (many) steps to the beautiful and unspoilt beach below. Lovely golden sand with a dramatic cliff back-drop. Don't sunbathe too close to the cliffs - despite many warning signs people ignore these and you can see where rocks have fallen onto the beach. The beach cafe was closed when we visited... More
