Dead end in the wind
May 2021 • Family
Came in half-term week as a last minute EasyJet holiday booking. This was due to Portugal being the only country we could really travel to at the time thanks to the harsh (and ridiculous) UK restrictions. Considering this, I was surprised that hardly any of the resort was open: it was like a ghost town. The beach itself looked nice: large with pale soft sand as in the images. However, the weather was appalling. It was SO windy. The sea looked hostile and dangerous, with roaring waves (ideal for surfers but not your family day out) that would grab you and pull you out of your depth at the first opportunity. The wind was also biting cold. I couldn’t remove my jacket and neither could most people I saw.
I expected more from this resort in early June. I found it inhospitable in many ways. Even though the poor weather was no one’s fault, if you couldn’t bathe or swim, there was literally NOTHING else to do. I felt at a loss for most of my stay here. I wouldn’t recommend it. Give me Greece anytime; amber or otherwise...

Beautiful
Sep 2020 • Couples
A pleasant quiet resort with lots of eateries to suit all pallets.

Plenty of Bars offering the usual mix of Beers, Shorts and Cocktails.

Shopping is limited.

An awesome beech with lots of options for a Beach Bed and Umbrella at a charge about €10 a visit or free sections along the beach catering just your own towel.

A quiet area with plenty to visit around in the car for what is missing.

Great beach
Sep 2020 • Couples
The beach in Monte Gordo offers ample space. You can walk for miles heading to Altura and Manta Rota. Sunbeds and parasols can be rented for half a day or whole day. Take a delicious lunch at the various beach restaurants. There is also enough room if you take your own bed and parasol.

Great beach but too crowded
Sep 2020 • Couples
This is a nice spacious beach with warm water, but its always too crowded and with too much concession space.

What a beautiful place to be
Aug 2020
Fabulous beach! The walkways have turned this place the best in Monte Gordo.
Clean and warm water, comfortable golden sand, lots of restaurants by the walkway. This is also the best place for a Jog, either by the sea or through the long walkways

A brilliaant walkway
Feb 2020
Walking the length of the boardwalk(which is just1 mile long) became a daily must .The walkway runs just above the beachand along the front of many restaurants & cafes where you can sit and watch the world go by. At the end of the boardwalk ,the many small fishing boats land their catch. It is facinating to watch this spectacle and see the many unfamiliar fish whichare sold by them, once landed. The beach is beautifully clean, the air is bracing, the views are wonderful

Fantastic Boardwalk
Mar 2020 • Couples
We loved walking the length of the board walk during the day and early evening. Lots of interesting cafes, loos, showers, fishing boats and golden sand. Great to see folk of all abilities accessing the walk, what was really funny is you knew the locals who think it’s cold in March and the mad tourists in shorts and tee shirts !

Great facility
