This was one of our favourite beaches this was a ten minute walk from our hotel . As it was winter there was nothing open and we had the beach to ourselves.

Praia da Coelha (Rabbit Beach) is a very typical Algarve coast location featuring clean fine sand, limestone cliffs and Atlantic breakers rolling in. The coastline is well linked with a path network for walkers although care required at many parts due to coastal erosion and steep drops. There is a nice bar at the beach with decent food and a...

A beautifully idyllic beach. Quiet sandy sheltered. Don't go if that's not what you want and leave it to those who do :-) So perfect my fiance proposed here on the final day of our holiday ❤

Turquoise water, quiet beach and lovely views of the rocks and caves around! The small beach gives it a sun trap too!

A bit of a walk from the top car park. Resteraunt on the beach. Go to the far end past the rock you can walk through to discover a beach full of shells!

This beach was the nearest to our hotel so we always walked there should imagine parking may be a problem on busy days. Sun beds are a bit pricey however 15 euro seems to be the going rate for the area. Great place for a swim

Hidden gem in Algarve, even from some of the Portuguese! Quite and beautiful with the cliffs carved by the sea and weather making it a constantly changing beauty. With the restaurant serving the beach with a very nice terrace overlooking the sea and serving fresh fish, it's really heaven on earth.

I liked it a lot because it's cute and not too wide, has a good restaurant, great to swimm. Parking can be difficult though but worth the effort
