Will what should I say? The view is gorgeous, you can see the river going to the sea near the rocks. Unfortunately it was cloudy and windy, but definitely worth it! We walk at the beach and admire how beautiful nature could be!

This is a great beach with a little freshwater river flowing out. If you have kids, the shallow river is a great place for them to play in the water. I hardly went into the ocean, since that's more tempting for surfers, but the ocean...More

A very pleasant place to stop at for a couple of hours. We sat at a reasonably priced cafe and watched people on the beach.

Small idyllic beach with river mouth. Cafes and restaurants nearby. Camp area on the cliff for those sleeping in vans/campervans. Don't set your camp up outside your van as you have a high risk of getting in trouble by the local authorities.

The area is superbe! You can hike along the coast or just enjoy sunbathing and jumping in the water. Their are lifeguards to make sure everybody remains safe.

Worth driving both sides of the river to really appreciate the scenery. Perfect for a pleasant walk along the beach or along the cliff tops

sorry, but I am not aware of there being any beach chairs for hire. We visited Odeceixe beach from about 20 km away and don't know of any local hotels.
