I took a boat trip to see Praia da Marinha and I feel very grateful to have done so. As one of the Top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world, it would be a shame not to experience it for oneself.

This really was the best of our visit to The Algarve... down a steep path to the beach, we found beautiful golden sand and vistas. The views from the top of the cliffs were magnificent...well worth a visit...

I don't do beaches but I have to say that in late April this place was deserted and a little bit of paradise found! Make the effort to find it and enjoy a little exclusivity in paradise!

After walking down the steps we thought the beach was small and full but don't be fooled there's more beach and coves if you keep walking to the right. My kids loved it here because the sea was calm enough to paddle and there were a few rocks and coves to explore. We took a picnic and stayed all day.... More

This is, along with Camilo beach, the best beach in the algarve in my opinion. It is a little off the beaten track and down some steep steps, but well worth it. The views from the car park and the beach itself are amazing, the sand perfect and shade from the overhanging rocks. Not sure how busy it is in... More

The beach and view were stunning and quiet but there were a cliff face full of steps down and worse back up again!!! Glad it was just my husband and I because it is not a practical location to be dragging the kids and baggage.

If you are looking for a unique beach, this is one of those. It's a bit of a drive, but worth it. There is enough space on the parking. You can have a walk about and enjoy the views and nature. There is either a dust path going right towards the arches or a stone path going along the ridge... More
