“Probably my favourite beach ever”
Review of Praia do Camilo

Sure, this beach is small, but the scenery is absolutely amazing! Great rock formations and warm turquoise water. There's a giant natural Pot Hole carved in the rock that you can walk into from the sea side, and there's also a small tunnel through the rock that leads to a another adjoining beach.

If you're in a mood for walking, enjoying the scenery, taking pictures then please do visit this beach. If you want to spend the day at the beach then I would suggest you choose some other beach in the neighbourhood: this one is rather small and will get crowded very quickly during summer, has many steps to climb, limited parking space, stones and rocks in the sea and to go to the toilet or get something to drink/eat you have to climb all those steps.

Have had a couple of meals at this restaurant, and will certainly return on our next visit to the Algarve.

Given the location there didn't seem any premium in the price. Only in Portugal!!
Very busy but service was good and three meals faultless. View from cliff across the coast superb

Nice beach. There's a good cafe at the top of the beach which serve fresh inexpensive oysters.
