Stunning location. Breathtaking views, surrounded by lovely walks. Decent menu, caters well for lunches and children’s food. Service can be slow and it took a while to get the bill. Would definitely recommend this bar and beauty spot

Yes Ferraguda is worth a visit. There a regular water taxi from there to Portsmouth. Just 10 minutes travel but we'll worth it. Benajil is also close by with a huge cave you can explore
