“Such a lovely Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The walk from Clube Humbria is a stroll down hill to the beach. On the way there are lots of little shops and restaurants and bars. The views from the promenade are lovely. There is also a gelateria that sells a wide selection of flavours of delicious ice -cream cones at more than reasonable prices.

The beach itself is very clean and there are lots of benches to sit on and enjoy the views or you can walk along the sand. However, some of the rocks are not safe to climb.

“Small sandy beach with fresh water springs only visible at low tide”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Good to see the old men mending their nets and hanging around their handful of small boats. But too many touristy shops and cafe/bars....the whole road down to the beach is very overdeveloped with too many restaurants hotels and apartments for what is only a small beach 200-300 metres long

“Olhos de Agua Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Lovely sandy beach and little sandy coves to be found after just a short walk either over the rocks at low tide or over the cliffs.Lots of lovely little bars to sit and watch the world go by and enjoy a drink or light lunch
No traffic allowed down by the beach (apart from deliveries etc) so safe and quiet !
