I have visited this beach many times as it is not crowded and you can actually relax. It is nice and clean and there are not lots of tourist stalls or people trying to sell things, so is very good if you are taking children...More

lots of lovely clean sand, a couple of handy bars/restaurants and views along the coast - what's not to like.

This is a lovely beach that is beautiful, clean and unspoilt. Lovely for walking and several restaurants for ‘pit stops’. There are sun loungers to be hired at regular intervals and plenty of space for picnics. Lovely and restful. Definitely worth a trip.

Far better than Albufeira. Long enough so everyone can enjoy their own private beach! The whole beach has a parallel wooden path making it easy to get to your spot too

The sea is calm. Weather fine. Sunny. Safe and family with kids friendly. There are some bars and restaurants close to the beach that can make your experience even better.

Rugged coastline with secluded small bays which can be tricky to access. The sunsets are unbelievable
