In Rio da Barra is located the Falésias and you can get there walking. It's an amazing place to take pictures, so don't forget your camera.

Really liked how clean and pretty this beach, but it was much more expensive than the other beaches - from food to the R30 parking. It wasn't so much better than Rio Verde Beach that we'd pay the entry fee again.

Beautiful Sandy beach (check the tides), sea with no rocks or seaweed and in early april...No people at all. In a whole day I saw about 10 walkers while I lazed on a sunlounger at the terra Vista.

A great walk from the main beach in Trancoso, with plenty of places to stop for drinks along the way.

We spent the last two days of our weeklong holiday in Trancoso here. It was by far the best, even better than Caraiva and Praia do Espelho. We spent the day at the Cabahna there and the food was excellent. The consumo minimo (minimum consumption to spend the day at the hotel/restaurant) was also quite reasonable at 40 reais (about...

Just 20 minutes walking from the Rio Trancoso, you walk through the beautiful Nativos’ beach to arrive at this piece of heaven on earth. A very quiet place with just one restaurant, it offers the sweet river water, a walk through the mangrove, nice waves, incredible landscape and, if you want some adventure, you might walk further yet, through the...
