Better in low season
May 2021
Is one of the most popular beaches in Algarve. Better in low season. In high season it gets super crowded and full of boats, kayaks and paddle boards.

Beautiful landscape

From this beach you can take a path where you can see beautiful views of the ocean and especially at sunset.

Highlight of our Algarve trip
Oct 2020
Highlight of our Algarve trip. A beautiful hike, with wonderful views. Not many people (but may have to do with Corona & October).

It was really beautiful. You can make the hike as difficult and long as you wish.

World greatest beach
Aug 2020 • Solo
I’ve been in so many countries
Before corona happened to all of us.
Halong, kho pi, el Nido and coron.
Many many more. Thumbs up to Portugal. This beach is probably the best. U can work on ur suntan then take a really really cool swim. Go for hiking or just read a book at the elephant mountain and relax.

It’s a clean beach I wasn alone no one was trying to steal or do something stupid.
I just loved it here. My favorite place in the algarves

Stunning

Stunning is the only word for this beautiful place on earth. We spent the day hiking the rochas and then relaxing on the sand and in the water.

Stunning cliffs, some walking required
Jan 2020 • Couples
One of my favorite location in this area. Wonderful view of rocks, some amazing shapes. Plenty of spots to be discovered by exploring walking paths. A must see place for me. Easy accessible by car.

Superb beach
Nov 2019 • Family
This is a beautiful beach and well worth the steep climb down the steps to it and the hard work returning from the beach to the car park via the same steps. The sand is very clean and cliffs spectacular. If you take young children you will need to take care with the sea. It is very enticing but like a lot of the Algarve the sea can be very powerful. This is an absolute must for a family visit. The only off putting thing is the vast majority of people who ignored the safety signs and sat right under the cliffs in the paths of any rockfalls. Crazy...

Hanging Valleys walk
Oct 2019 • Family
Idyllic beach with spell bounding coastal erosion features. You can see all the different types of erosion in this one beach. Visited this beach as a part of our coastal walk from Carveiro (Hanging valleys walk). Some of the best sandy beaches can be seen along this walk. There is a restaurant by the beach but closes after 5. Hence no WC facilities if you reach here late.

Gorgeous Beach
Oct 2019 • Couples
So many beaches are beautiful in Portugal but this beach is something special. Small and a walk down steps to get to but worth it.
It is surrounded by beautiful cliffs, well worth a stroll. Be careful as sheer drops around some cliff tops.

Stunning
Oct 2019 • Couples
Simply that, stunning!!

Two things of note, the beach and the cliffs.

The beach itself is beautiful. Not the largest in the area and it would be packed during high season, but for our visit in October, it was busy but not overly so.

To get to the beach you descend quite a number of steps to the bottom of the cliffs, (so not the best for anybody physically impaired), but once you get to the beach it is encased by the amazing red cliffs. The water was fab with waves the lap in and out. Some of the waves were strong so be careful with kids.

There is a cafe at the beach but we found it a bit pricey as they have a captive audience - I hate that!!

Now for the cliffs. Back up the steps from the beach, you can walk right around the cliff edge. You can actually walk over 5km so all good for hikers. The views are stunning. Fences are in some places, however in others, you can literally step right to the edge, so care with kids. The ground is rocky so be careful under foot and be sure to put on sun cream. The sea breeze will definitely mask the effects of the sun.

All in all one of our best trips out. A great find by the boss aka the wife. Thanks Jan xx
