“A fantastic beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Great for surfers, familes and everyone in between. A fantastic caf/restaurant overlooks the beach - simple but good value. Lots of rock pools to keep the young ones entertained and as it is the mouth of the river, even when the waves are pounding there are safer shallow spots for little ones. Brilliant.

“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

An amazing beach with sweeping sands and deep sand dunes. A river runs into it so there is plenty of space and lots of water. Two great beach bar/restaurants are situated either end with refreshments and toilets. A great place to sunbathe, or surf.

“The most amazing beach and scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

I have just returned from a holiday on the Algarve with husband and friends and whilst there we visited this beach on the west coast. What a fantastic place. Beautiful unspoilt sands, crashing Atlantic waves - not suitable for swimming - and a great beach bar/cafe serving great food. Nothing else there, no noise, no commercialisation. You have to see it to believe it. Well worth the journey. Parking is alongside the cafe and only about 15 steps down to the beach. What more could you ask for! And, if you like scenic photography, this is the place.
