This is a beautiful and nice spot well balanced in all dimensions. Unusual to find anything similar. Not crowded, 2 permanent lifeguards overlooking the children, a bar-restaurant with everything you need, massage and bodyboard rental, surf school, plenty parking. The swell is just perfect and...More

It was hard to find available parking but it was worth a visit. Very good beach to spend time with the kids.

Not my favourite, because of the amount of rocks, but very beautiful, from the point of view of Geology. Not so much space for parking, so it is a good idea to park in the village, and then walk. Avoid going during the SW Music...More

Most beautiful place to watch the sunset. For swimming there may be better beaches as it is very rocky. Buy after traveling down the coast of portugal, it was the best place to watch the sunset.

The beach is next to the town of Zambujeira do Mar. Stand on top of the plaza and the big beach is beneath you with a vast expanse of ocean. It isn't as serene and quiet as others we visited—more tourists and locals but not...More

Outstandingly beautiful beach, great views down from the town. At low tide you have a massive beach, great for sunbathing. As with all of this coast there are big waves for the surfers too!

Great place to relax in the off season (last week of Sept), when the sun is still shining. The little quaint little town boasts a small number of shops, restaurants as still going, but unfortunately Gelato shop is closed during then till next summer. However,...More
