Was very impressed with this stretch of clean sandy beach. Relatively cheap parking right by the beach and a good selection of reasonably priced restaurants.

Fabulous sandy beach with lovely warm sea ideal unspoilt and very clean. It’s ideal for families and couples but not for rowdy teenagers. A few restaurants good for seafood.

Manta Rota beach is in August the best gay nude beach in Easter Algarve. Park the car in the car park at the beginning of the dunes and walk right across the dunes.
