This is a huge, wide beach. Not suitable for swimming based on the size of the waves and the strong winds but great to walk along, splash in the surf and watch the surfers and boarders in action. The beach is quite long so great to take. Walk. There is also a nicely paved promenade alongside if you don't wan... More

Not very populated when I came in Dec 2015 which added to its charm. Great place to view the great ocean that is the Atlantic. Watch the fishing town and its people go about there daily lives. Peaceful, away from mass tourism and the prices that's go with it. Great place for budget travellers.

Go to the beach and walk along the shoreline. A lot of camels and horses that will bring you to Portugal castle. Bargain before hoping in. 15 euros for 1 hour is fine.

one of the loveliest places to enjoy long walks and most memorable sunsets .. the swimming is generally safe but the waves can at times give you a good Atlantic slap

Endless beach perfect for walking along the shoreline, when I visited the weather not so good so didn't get a chance for a swim. Huge waves.and well known for its many water sports. Made the most of the beach by enjoying some lovely walks by the ocean. Some local vendors sell cookies etc and also many cafes to chill out... More
