Excursions

I could not fault this location, just be wary of the excursions, very often what is promised does not come to fruition.

Praia da Rocha Beach is the longest and the broadest of the beaches along this stretch of the coastline. Surrounded by beautiful rock cliffs includes a sweep of restaurants, bars and clubs, a paved promenade, a marina, and a casino.

This place is great. There is a long boardwalk with ample bars and restaurants along the way. Very impressive beach and friendly people. Lots of shops and limited traffic. Very nice!!

Wonderful beach with white, soft sand, small waves and too crowded (in June). Nice restaurants nearby.

It's certainly one of the best. Prices are good. €5 for a sunbed, umbrella and windbreaker. Plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. Water sports including wind surfing and jet skiing. And the beach itself is of course perfection.

This was my first at this beach and I loved it. I recommend to every one, and for sure I am coming back. Its great for kids, it has a big sand area and it has great views. If you like to swim, the sea is perfect.

Portimao was the second port of call on our cruise holiday to Spain and Portugal, and proved to be the highlight of our whole holiday! Boat trips were being advertised on the promenade in a Gondola-style boat which took us on a coastal exploration.
