This is the next beach West of Sao Rafael that I have already reviewed, and it shares most of its features except intimate views
towards Albufeira. It is cute and cosy ---- almost furry, you might say --- and its name stands for Rabbit in the Portuguese language. There are glorious walks West towards Castello Beach over the golden and ochre rocks and the fantastic outcrops and mini-peninsulas that cover the distance between the two. Many different paths of varying risk and difficulty are available, and despite first appearances, only a real fool would get into difficulty on this terrain that offers such rich visual rewards to those who venture into it. A stick and reliable boots are better than sandals, although someone really agile can get by on the latter. Note that a torrent of rain can develop out of even a clear blue sky, so come prepared for that too. At each end (Castello and Coelho) there is a restaurant on the beach offering food, beverages, and other comforts.

This was my local beach! The nearest from the hotel. Known locally as Rabbit beach. A small cove with rock formations, great sun traps and protection from the wind.fabulous sand and crashing waves. Loved it.

You have no problem parking but then you have to walk along a pathway which would not be advisable for those with difficulty walking. Coelho beach means rabbit beach which is the name if my bank manager !! The beach is small and seems popular with young people

Typical of many such small beaches, there are several between Albufeira and Galé, that make Portugal so special. While away an afternoon here and get some food and drink at the beech bar restaurant, though of course you pay a little extra for the location

very secluded quiet spot, beautiful rocks and cristal clear blue water,
soft sandy beach, has a private feel to it.
