“Nice Beach walk from Car”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Good beach but beware its a walk from the car park so those with mobility issues are best to avoid

Small beach but nice with cliffs all around. Beach bar good with cold beer and an excellent piri piri

“This is a very small bay with a restaurant overlooking it, the restaurant was lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Access to this beach is quite difficult though as you have to park quite a way away from the restaurant and walk and there are steps only down to the beach but if you are able to walk it is well worth a visit.

“access to Beach down a pleasant track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

I am writing about the beach which is lovely perfect for children and away from it all, it is mainly frequented by people from Hapimag timeshare which is at the top of the track. It is quite a small little cove but plenty of room for all. There is a beach bar there and we did have lunch the drinks were reasonably priced but I thought the food was slightly more expensive than the other beach bars we had visited , it was however nicely cooked and plenty of it. I might add it is not a difficult walk down to the beach and coming back it is quite a gradual incline with plenty of man made steps

“Awesome beach with cave!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen in the Algarve. Just the right size and perfect for the kids. It has a small cave that can be explored on foot early morningish before the tide comes in. It is not a super busy beach as it's just outside of Albufeira so it's perfect to relax in, there are lifeguards on duty too. There is a fantastic restaurant (Restaurante Praia da Coelha) overlooking the beach (the grilled prawn kebab was AMAZING, super fresh and great value).
