This beach is really huge and a beautiful place to stay especially with kids who can swim in the water behind the beach which isn't really deep. We loved this calm place

Just amazing, wonderful and excellent peace of nature. If you go far you can even avoid to be with people at all. This means you, your company and ocean only in one place without anyone bothering your sight. White sand, waves, rocks, ocean. Some great...More

Vast expanse of white sand, big waves and lots of place to pick a spot where you'll feel on your own to enjoy the views. Such a welcome change from the overcrowded beaches in southern algarve. Make sure you stay for sunset!

You drive to Carrapateira, a small village that feels like you have come to the very end of the Algarve full of surfers and laid back people. You drive about half a mile out of town before a sign for Bordeira beach appears, you arrive...More

Bordeira beach is for me one of the greatest beaches in Portugal. Maybe it is the "desert feeling" I always get when I see the high dunes! You can also learn surfing at Bordeira beach it is perfectly suited and many surf schools come here....More

I don't think there is anywhere on this beach to get food or drink. You would need to take it with you. There is a supermarket in the village on the main road but this is some distance from the beach.

Yes dogs are allowed but you should try to walk away from the beginning of the beach where everyone normally stays. The beach is extensive with plenty of space for you to walk the dog and sit and sunbathe away from everyone... More
