The view from the staircase connecting city centre and beach is incredible and the beach itself is something else. It’s the perfect place to take a walk, relax, enjoy the sun and off season it is extremely quiet. It’s definitely worth a visit!

Went down here a few times to take sunset pictures on the beach. We were staying in an airbnb just 5 minute walk and truly loved this area.

A must visit if you are in Portimao, just follow the beach down from Portimao and you will come to the very picturesque setting. Beds are 5/7 euros a day at this time in the season. Good value and great for just enjoying the sun

Given it's location, this beach was not as crowded as the others. The little shack had great coffee, the owner is delightful, the the beach chairs and umbrella offer a pleasant way to spend the day on the beach!

We love this beach. The rock formations are incredible and there are very few high rise buildings overlooking it. The sand is mostly soft and we enjoyed investigating all the rock pools etc when the tide was out. Two good bar/restaurants near to us so...More

This beach near Praia de Rocha is very different to the main beach. It’s got loads of character and is a typical Algarve beach with Rocks and caves to explore
