Strip is full of shops, bars, restaurant's and couple clubs including a strip club which I recommend (Royal Teaser). Beach is beautiful, possibly best I've seen. Atmosphere at night on strip is lively. Hot weather. One bad point is that area is generally small. Only do much you can do but recommend all the same.

It's a beautiful, beach with lots of space. The access to the beach is not that easy (stairs). It has nice restaurants to avoid you having to climb up for lunch.

This was our second stay in Praia Da Rocha and the place has so much going for it, beautiful beaches and views out over the Atlantic, the only thing the lets it down is its slight lack of love shown by its council or whatever the Portuguese equivalent is, there is a lot of graffiti and a lot of holes...

Praia da rocha isn't really a town just a long one street strip with the usual tourist tacky shops, pubs & restaurants. Only 2 decent meals were had - Shangai Chinese & The Irish Rover pub. Restaurants were appalling - the ones we visited had poor service & bland food and every restaurant basically offered the same menu. Our first... More

Too commercialised for our taste. Beautiful beach and views. Lovely walk along beach and marina into Portimao.
