“One of the Best Beaches in Algarve”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

One of the best beaches in the Algarve, Portugal.
Away from any village or town, great for nature and beach photography.
But you have to use the long stairs to reach it.
One of the Top 100 beaches on Michelin Guide.

“long and narrow beach”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

The beach is nice but very narrow in the afternoon as the tide comes in and feels claustrophobic with too many people.

“wow beach”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

the beach is gorgeous a real feast for the senses and the eyes. so cool.
enjoy, take an unbrella and some fruit and hang out. the beach bar is a bit
rough and is good for a coffee but really quite dingy and the sandwiches
not so good.
so go enjoy and take provisions.

“Wow!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

What a fantastic beach! There were a fair number of steps down to this beach but they were well worth it. This is a lovely sandy beach with the typical Algarve cliffs and the azure blue sea!
There is also a lovely walking trail along the to of the cliffs with spectacular views.
There is a large car park.
