What a great day! Our guide, Ralf, with GraspaWasp, was terrific!!! He lives in the area and knows it so well that he took us to absolutely sublime spots that are not what you find listed everywhere. Three Brothers Beach and Ponta das Piedades were...More

Very beautiful, but very rocky. Probably the most beautiful in Europe. Beware to cut feet on rocks under water. Free parking near beach.

It is recommended to arrive early as the place is a victim of its success. Large parking available, but really chaotic and already full at 11 am. Otherwise, you can also park on the side of the road. The beach itself is absolutely wonderful. In...More

There’s nothing like it! Easy walk/hike just above called seven hanging valleys is absolutely amazing. Walk the cliffs to Bengali beach for lunch, walk back and spend the afternoon on the beautiful beach.

Definitely one of the nicest beaches we’ve ever visited. We arrived early thanks to previous reviews and had no problem parking. By 9:30 am the beach was crowded. I highly recommend seeing this beach and visiting the caves and walking around the cliffs. The views...More

The beach itself is beautiful. It’s quite a long way down from the parking area but It’s worth it. But bear in mind that there are rocks in the water so it’s not easy to get it and get out, especially when there are waves....More

Excellent answers from Alex and Cyrus (above). An alternative: We walked from to the village and down to a nearby beach and then to the beach at Carveiro, using roads, paths and some sidewalks. Be cautious of vehicle... More
