Only stayed in Praia da Rocha for quick week in October. It's a pretty typical southern European holiday resort with a mixture of accommodation from very very cheap to mid priced. Lovely beach and enough bars and restaurants to keep you busy for a week or two.

The cleanest beach you will ever see. And it is massive!!! The caves and rocks are beautiful. You must visit it if you are in the area.

The beaches were wonderful during our winter stay, warm enough to paddle. The board walk made an easy walk possible too. Lovely cliff top walk also a delight when the tide wasn't far enough out to do the beach walk.

One of the most beautiful beaches of the Algarve, with fascinating cliffs and rock formations, very broad white sands, loads of access from the town of Portimao, and a long, well-kept boardwalk bordered by many restaurants and snack bars.

Praia Da Rocha, very tidy beach with lots going on at the eastern end of the beach, lots of cafes and Restaurants along the extensive board walk that stretches the full length of the beach. Great place to visit with family.

The resort was very quiet and several places were not open. The weather was sunny but chilly wind.. still managed a sea swim in our wetsuits.
