Gorgeous beach. Lots of sand. It's one of those beaches that's really shallow for a while so it's warmer near the shore. A few people surfing. Surf rentals available. Lounge chair rentals available too. Lifeguards. A bit hard to get to but gorgeous.

sorry, but I am not aware of there being any beach chairs for hire. We visited Odeceixe beach from about 20 km away and don't know of any local hotels.
