It has everything ....free parking, fruit and drinks stall in the car park, stunning views, a beach bar with toilets and long sandy beach so you are not on top of each other. Take snorkels! Not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs users as lots of steps down to the beach

A bit of paradise - not suitable for anyone with mobility issues due to stairs !! Views and location are to die for !!!

This is the best beach in Algarve in my opinion: very beautiful, not very crowded, good sand, clean water, there is a cafe nearby and lots of parking space. Also, Benagil is 5 min drive from Praia da Marinha where you can take a boat trip to see the caves (17 € per person).

Great walk around the coastline. Little bit rocky/slippy so wear good footwear. Amazing views out to sea, beaches, coves, caves and eroding rocks. Beautiful place.

Very scenic and beautiful location, absolutely picture postcard stuff. For those with young children or for those a little physically challenged the walk/stairs down to the beach might be a little challenging. There is also a must-do one hour boat trip from here that I would highly recommend.

The beach is amazing! Stunning views, crystal water. Many caves and hidden beaches with access only by water. Very interesting to swim around!

This beach is a beautiful sandy beach. My daughter counted 115 steps down from the car park and we all agree that the experience is worth every step down and back up again.
