The white sand is amazing. It was my first time on a white sand beach. Loved walking around the dunnes as they where soft underfoot and as it was early morning it felt like we where the only couple on the beach as no one else had ventured amongst the dunnes. Afterwards we took a dip in the blue waters... More

White sand beach, gorgeous! The mountains and ships in the back are great -Really enjoyed our short time here, wish there had been more within walking distance to grab good or drinks but at least there was a good amount of "beach vendors" walking around. Beach wasn't overly crowded which allowed to some great beach soccer.

Even after a few hours there you still can't believe that white sand is not snow. It's really amazing!

Praia do Forte is the big seller but Dunas is actually the same beach. Dunas offers less traffic with the same water! Excellent beach.
