Good beech nice little train to get to island restaurants can be a little pricy, parking on main land a problem in high season
The sand is golden and soft and it's not too busy either. The restaurants are very nice and the narrow gauge train ride there is fun too! The beach is clean and unspoiled, but be careful to not walk down too far down the beach if you're easily offended or with your family - further down the beach is a... More
I wonder does this beach ever end or does it simply stretch on off to heaven itself. We visit it out of peak season and you can walk for 2.5 hours without meeting more than a handful of people or ever approaching the end. And I'm not a fan of walking!!! The beach is wide and the sand soft. The... More
Barril beach is absolutely beautiful it stretches for miles, there are a couple of restaurants which is just enough as not to spoil things. What makes this beach so unusual is the graveyard of anchors, if you go to have lunch or dinner in one of the restaurants you will see the history of the anchors. So wherever you are... More

you can reach this beach by a little train or just walk. it's a beautiful clean beach, claer water and white sand. the entree is lovely wit all the anchors.
In comparison to Tavira Island this was very commercial and food/meals/snacks were excessively priced. Interesting area with the Tuna fishing industry and nice white sands accessible by a lovely train from the mainland.
The train the train! Adorable. €1.20 per trip and though it's easy to walk instead, nothing will ever be as fun as getting the train. Apparently it runs all year. One of the highlights of our trip and I don't care if we are easily pleased. Praia do Barril is the beach of our dreams.
