“Small but fun”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Love this beach. It is small and a lot of steps to get to it. But perfect for sunset swims and a small restaurant at the top parking lot.

“A GOOD LITTLE FIND!!!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

If you dont like the hustle and bustle of sharing a main beach with others then this is a must for you.From the village square walk up the road behind the tourist information,straight up the hill and you will find the most beautifull remote little beach.

“Almost a private beach!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

This beach is found at the top of Rua do Casino - walk up the steep hill behind the main square behind Martin's Grill, follow the road all the way to the top and you will find white steps going all the way down (this is a long walk down and up, so not for the less able). But its well worth the effort. The beach is small and has amazing rock formations and the beginnings of small caves! If you want to swim you will need to wait for high tide as it is very rocky underfoot when the tide is out. Later in the afternoon is a good time for a swim. When you come back up there's a lovely restaurant at the top (pricey due to its location) but they do some fab sardines!!

“Nice beach, can get a little crowded, so arrive early”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Nice beach, can get a little crowded, so arrive early. Has plenty of bars and restaurants in the vicinity. For parking your best best is Monte Carvoeiro, around 10 mins walk up the hill....

“Nice beach and not to crowdy”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Be aware that there are a lot of stairs when you want to visit it. The beach can get very small when the tide is (very) high.
