Just a short walk away from the marina in vilamoura and you find this long sandy beach 🏖 perfect for an out of season stroll. No danger of going hungry with a number of restaurants and beach clubs to choose from.

This is a beautiful location, a great place to watch the sunset. There is a small carpark at the cliff top and an even smaller on further down. Both good for different reasons. Go and see, check it out. Whether you just want a beach...More

We walked along the beach every day we were in the area. Each time it was clean and uncrowded. There were plenty of litter bins on the beach so no excuses!
