Amazing but poor structure!

It's amazing place. The view is awesome. Nature is perfect. But go prepared. There are no toilets and an unique local bar is open only during summer time.

If you asked me what paradise looked like I am sure I would describe something like this beach, absolutely beautiful place.

Erosion has taken a toe on the cliffs but its probably the most beautiful beach in the Algarve. Its just like a small piece of paradise. A walk near this beach will give thew chance to see the Algars and without any doubt i took some of the most beautiful photos. A must see.

Had a great day with the kids here. Views are spectacular and the beach is very nice and secluded. One of the 'must to's' of the Algarve. We will be back.

This is a beautiful beach as many contributors have said. What lets down the overall experience is the rip off beach bar at the eastern end of the beach. Coffee with milk at €5 when the average price is €3.60 or less. Surly and unhelpful staff don't help either. When we visited only one toilet was working and that could... More

We walked around the cliffs and rocks for a quite long time because the views are amazing. This is truly one of the "must-do" during your Algarve stay. One of the nicest places I have ever been. Also, the beach itself is fine.

When you visit the Algarve, make sure to get off the beaten track and visit some of the wonderful beaches that the developers have passed by! Praia da Marinha is one of them. Just a short drive out from Carvoeiro and Porches.

In my opinion the best beach I've been in Europe. We've come here many times and always enjoyed ourselves. Every corner is worth a million photos

If you're travelling in Algarve you need to come and visit. Great to walk over the cliffs with stunning views of the beach and the sea
