A group from town walks to Pedra Furada ensemble every day at a certain time (ask at your pousada, they all know what time and where you can catch them). The walk there is really beautiful, with wild donkeys dotting the hills. Once there everyone scrambles to take a photo of themselves in the middle of the rock, which is... More

You get there by coach and then 800m walk up the slope down to the beach. In July, the sunset is exactly between the beach and the stone, and you can see the sun setting exactly the "hole". Fantastic.

There are three ways to access the beach from the pierced stone (pedra furada) and loose stone (pedra solta), however, the path that borders the beaches is the most difficult and beautiful. Should be done by young people willing to walk in very soft sand. Stone loose beacn and stone pierced beach are the two things that should be seen... More

It's a little hard to get there as you have to climb down a very irregular field, but it's worth it. You can get there early in the morning by the sea cost, or walk from up the hill using the Lighthouse trail. Use your tennis shoes and you will climb better. Hire a horse car for the trip back...

We really enjoyed hiking from our hotel to Pedra Furada - excellent hike with amazing coastal views. The kids were also thrilled with the adventure - definitely recommend walking! There are friendly dogs who act as guides (my son named "his" white companion Rufus - see if you can get an escort from him!), donkeys grazing on the greenery, goats... More

Great sunset in the middle of somewhere far far away. The fun began walking from Jeri through the dunes and the beach under the blue sky with a strong wind.

it is the beach and the rock with a hole, through which you can see, at the time of sunset, the sun going down.The wind is always strong and gives a wild feeling. The ride to the place with a horse is amasing, so relaxing, quite and absolutely slow with great views of the dunes and the whole area.

If you are going with small children, definitely take a buggy to go to Pedra Furada. The buggy leaves you 1,5 km from Pedra Furada, but most of the walk is along the beach with great views. If you go walking from Jeri beach it is 2 km, but from what I've seen part of the walk is on top... More
