We stayed here for 4 nights. The weather was fabulous and the beach was one of the best we have ever seen. Some nice restaurants serving good cheap food. The bars on the strip were ok but were really spoilt with permitted smoking inside. It's like going back in time for 20 years. We had a fabulous Dolphin Watch experience on a high speed Rib out of the Marina. 25 euros each...great value. Spent quite a few hours at No Solo Agua (Beach Club) down by the Marina, Great atmosphere and great food. Nice resort for a short break

Mass tourism and high hotels and apartments. Extensive sandy beach. The marina is a little more attractive. Large yachts and pretty coastline. We prefer Alvor

My husband and I visited Praia da Rocha recently, our 30TH Wedding Anniversary, we chose this place as we have been to many places but always seem to return here, that in itself says it all. Praia da Rocha is our favourite place. We stayed in the Jardins Da Rocha appartments and could not fault it at all, rooms basic but cleaned every day and towels plentiful, we got the high floor and sea view I requested, The reception staff were pleasant and polite and very welcoming. this has to be by far the best we have stayed in on the island for friendliness and location with a view to die for, not too near to the bars/shops etc but just a few minutes walk away. The beach which is the best on the Algarve is just a stones throw away.
If youve never been, try this place, just PERFECT!

Park at Praia do Vau at low tide and walk from there to Praia de Rocha (2.7KM). A great walk.

Or you could do a bar crawl there and back, but that would be much harder (too many bars).
