Its been 7 years since I visited here. I was very suprised at the amount of shop/bars that have closed down a sign of the recession. Still a beautiful resort with perfect beach.

Thought there would be more in praia da rocha than there was, lots of nice restaurants & bars etc, but think i prefer Albufeira. Quite alot of graffitti & vandalism around the outskirts of the main promenade when you were walking in.

If you're interested in eating well, staying out all night and chilling during the day Praia Da Rocha is definitely for you!

Went on a family Holiday there and was not let down, booked it through a travel agent. Found the beach perfect safe and clean lovely place for an evening stroll as the evenings are cooler. Some nice bars the Irish was a great crack as was the bar at the top of the street used to be called Taffys. The pier is also beautiful at night, and the waterworld is fantastic. Would also recomend the Jeep tours not too expensive.

We still love the town and again found it very quiet until June when the lights seem to go on.

The beach is fantastic but access is always down some steps, which means you have to climb up them afterwards :)

Evenings in May can be chilly so take a jumper if you are going then.
