Great beach fun

Of all the beaches we visited on our holiday, this was the best. Go, get a place in front of the Pedras Amarelas restaurant and just enjoy it.

I visited this beach often when I stayed in Salgados. This is like having a whole beach to yourself, which is my idea of paradise, heaven on earth. I dislike crowded beaches full of tourists, therefore for me this was simply ideal. The water is beautiful, the scenery is stunning. Wow, I love this beach with a passion!
