Lovely beach

Lovely clean safe beach in a beautiful location. It is small and can become busy but very pretty setting. Picture postcard.

The nature amazing, since it is done by God, the rest...ufff, needs someone to take care of it...toilet, wish you good luck, a bit of shadow if needed, the same... The funny thing is that would be very easy with a little effort to make it better for visitors but...maybe later ;)

clean, tidy. Plenty of mountain tops to walk with excellent views. Beach clean and sandy - water gets deep quickly so not great for young children

In my option I would probably say that this is one of the most beautiful beaches around Lagoa/ Carvoeiro/ Porches way. There's plenty of parking, the view from the top is epic and great for taking some good shots, the steps down are very easy and shaded by plenty of pine trees that makes the walk down extremely pleasant.

Location is beautiful, like a picture postcard. The beach itself is quite narrow, and it will be crowded in high season. We found the water not so clean, lots of bird feathers and small particles. Parking facilities are OK, and the walk down is not too steep.

The beach is set in a stunning location, under the towering sandstone cliffs. It's easy to find, being well signposted from the main road (N125). You have to walk down steep steps, but they are constructed, not a stony path so not difficult. We visited just outside peak holiday season on a hot day and there was very little room... More

Pretty beach, especially if you walk down the rocks to the further smaller beaches. Visually stunning! Skip the bar, 6 euros for a cheese toast, and they don't allow customers to use the bathroom... Bring your own drinks and food

Lovely beach, very picturesque. We bought a sun umbrella from a trader on the walk down to the beach, thinking that the 15 Euros was a good investment to use on other holidays or at home. However, we had to leave it at airport security (naively thought I could carry it on as hand luggage). Too long to fit into... More

The beach is nice, water is clean. Try the secret beach following the path through the cave, which is right on the main beach.

Made the pilgramage to this beautiful spot It is what you expect but it is very very overcrowded and it has an abundance of terribly weird people. I saw a skidmarked portugese man sniffing about my girlfriends bag while we were swimming in the sea which was a bit offputting. There is only one bar which has the longest queue... More
