Very nice beach that is sandwiched between the ocean and a river. The surf is rough so swim in the river can be more pleasant.

Quite a large patch of beach with a cute village on the side. The sand is very fine and the surroundings are beautiful.

Lovely beach and river mouth area. Walk to the beach is fine. Beautiful surroundings. Can hire beach things on beach. Surfboard hire is pricey!

This is a beautiful stretch of beach, but the waves are too rough for swimming. Would recommend the lagoon if there on a warm day

The drive out to Odeceixe is gorgeous. We didn't go to the beach, but walked along the cliffs that were above it. There are lots of trails and we highly recommend visiting them and spending some time exploring.

Lovely beach, with some excellent sheltered areas and facilities close by. Sun beds are available. When we visited they were still constructing a walkway to inlet which is beautiful, warm and great for kids and adults alike, not leaving out the surfers.

When we went in April there was a surfing hut open on the beach but I don't know if it was only for use by the surfing school. I suspect you can hire boards but I can't be certain.
