“Praia da Coelha”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Walk up and down is OK, even with a sore Achilles' tendon. Really cute little beach, nice sand, offers lots of sshade. Do not miss the cave, which is on the RHS looking out to sea. Enter from beach side and once inside, you can look out to sea through opening. If there's a beach I would suggest you mustn't miss, this is it.

“Small beach but great sand and good scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Coelha Beach is a bit of a walk from the car part but it is well worth it. Children will love the sand while there are a few sun beds and spectacular scenery - even better if you take a walk on the cliff paths.

It can be a bit windy so probably best avoided on colder days.

“Lovely PLace and Nice Cafe/Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We stay about 500M from this beach and we love the walk down to it. It's very cosy and the waves are great. Stop in at the Cafe for a coffee and a bite, that's quite good too.

“go there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Praia da Coelha is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. It is very small cove with rock formations, the sand is clean, the water is clear with crashing waves
