“Just love this beach”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

The trick is once you cross the bridge onto the island is to take the left road and go as far as you can. Park and then walk a few minutes on the beach. it is as thought you have just gone to paradise

“Super beach”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

If you are near Faro pay a visit to this beach. The lack of tourist hotels near by mean it is usually quiet during the week and used mostly by the Portuguese locals at the weekend. The beach is clean the swimming is good there are bars, cafes, and restaurants and plenty free parking.

However because it is mostly used by the locals some of the bars are only open on a weekend.

“The beach!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

With the choice of isla deserta and ila farohl, this would be my third choice. It was ok but nothing particularly special. Good selection of bars/restaurants that you don't get with the other two.

“Worth a visit but parking limited”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Plenty of cafes and sun loungers with shade. Don't visit the toilet there unless you have to though! There is a regular bus service there which seems to be hourly but I never did manage to work out the timetable!
