Great around beaches, restaurants people very friendly. As a single person with 3 children i didn't feel in any way threatened by myself. Great holiday would go back

We enjoyed a lot this beach during our trip to Algarve, It is quieter and smaller than other beach. Important to know: you need to go down some steps before reaching it.

Beautiful beach and the kids love going through the 'secret' tunnel to the other beach. Did some nice snorkeling along the cliffs. Bit of a walk down the hill from the car park but definitely worth it!

Located near an excellent beach restaurant the Nossa Senhora da Rocha Beach is a wonderful little place. The most unique aspect of the private cove is the tunnel cut through the cliff that connects the private western cove with the more public eastern beach area....More
