Absolutely beautiful beach with great facilities. The Golfinho Restaurant is conveniently located offering a great range of drinks and food and shower/wc. A friendly welcome every day !! Would definitely recommend.

Very clean beach. Restaurants are 5 minutes walking distance to enjoy the whole day there. Parking is sometimes a bit difficult
