The Algarve coast is just a natural wonder. It is so beautiful you will want to spend your whole vacation there, don't hesitate spending the 20 euros per person boat ride, because let me tell you that you won't regret it. It will take you into underground caves and canyons and even let you get down of the boat a... More

Stunning scenery. Beautiful views from the clifftop looking down onto the beach. But totally crowded and spoilt in August 2015. Take a photo from the clifftop car park and leave !

Went to this beach after reading reports that it is one of the top 10 in Europe. Being only 15 minutes from our apartment is was ideally located. Like most beaches in Portugal, there was ample free parking very close by. The views from the top are amazing. be aware there are 100 steps down to the beach itself but... More

The beach is a must if you are in the Algarve,Nice sand, and there is a beach bar which serves lunch and is not expensive.

Claimed to be one of the prettiest beaches in the world. Yep I'd agree with that...although when the tide is in, the very narrow strip of sand is jam packed!

It a very beautiful beach! We were there two times in out vacation ( we have proposed us to go each day on another beach, but this beach was so beautiful in our eyes, so we were there two times). You must go there and discover the beauty and the secrets of this beach!

Check out our review for Praia de Benagil which is actually this beach. We reviewed the wrong one! Saying that it looks fairly similar and is just around the corner.

Best beach in the area. Little place for snacks on the beach, buy some fruit from the car park before the walk down. Not good for less able bodied people. Beach does get busy, so arrive early.

This is a gorgeous beach, we visited early evening so it wasn't too busy, but I imagine it will get very busy during the day. Beautifully clean and well maintained. Some steps down but definitely worth the effort.

Nice and clean. Freezing water. Interesting feature are the caves and the entrance in the cave that takes you to a different beach.
