This is a lovely spot with ample parking on cliff top with magnificent views out to sea and south along the coast. the cliff and rock formations a fascinating and one would wonder how long the outcrops of rock will survive. Be prepared for the climb back up!!! Very tight for space when tide is full in.

Excellent beach, but a lot of stairs to go down. Cristal clear water and no waves, perfect for children and diving.

Nice scenery and reasonably accessible by car. Car park is also big. The beaches to East between this and Albandeira are even more beautiful but not really accessible.

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.
