This beach is amazing, great rock formations, caves and golden sand. I was looking forward to seeing this beach and I wasn’t disappointed, there is a cave that leads to another secret beach! Highly recommended!

The beach has numerous cliffs and the water is a sight to behold from above. This is a must do in every itinerary

There are a lot of steps down to the beach but it is beautiful and clean. There is a restaurant and there are lifeguards, though whether they are seasonal or not, I don't know.

We loved this beach. Not suitable for wheelchairs or strollers because of the many stairs. The nearest toilette was only at the beach restaurant, not near the parking!

I'm a bit baffled why TripAdvisor doesn't ensure that the correct name is used for some loccations, but this famous beach on the Algarve's coast of Portugal is known more accurately as Praia da Marinha. This is a phenomenally beautiful beach that encompasses azure seas,...More
