Fabulous sandy beach with lovely warm sea ideal unspoilt and very clean. It’s ideal for families and couples but not for rowdy teenagers. A few restaurants good for seafood.

Manta Rota beach is in August the best gay nude beach in Easter Algarve. Park the car in the car park at the beginning of the dunes and walk right across the dunes.
