With a large car park nearby Sao Rafael is easily accessible and, with a large rock in the centre, is unique in appearance. The sand is good and the beach well patrolled.

There is a good bar/restaurant and some wonderful cliff top walks.

I saw this beach on the boat trip, the sand is beautiful and the way it looks, there is no water sports on it just one cafe bar and some sun beds, the water is clear and there is free parking at the top.
