The beach is nice, but we made the mistake of going mid/late afternoon - tide was in - and it was packed. Suggest you go early or even later.

Went there as part of a boat tour. It was basically the nicest beach we saw all the way. However, keep in kind it gets crowded. The sea itself there had some beautiful colors. Definitely worth a visit.

Absolutely beautiful beach. You must arrive early. Anytime after 11 good luck finding parking. It always amazes me to see people arrive at noon and get angry because of no parking. What did you expect, its voted the most beautiful beach in Europe. The beach...More

This beach is simply breathtaking ! The view from the top is amazing but when you get on it it is also very nice! It is a very popular beach - try to get there early to be able to find a nice spot !...More

Brilliant little find, spacious and Clean. Don't forget to take an umbrella with you as the beach offers no shade. If you get a taxi to the beach, then get the number for the firm as there are no taxis waiting at the top

Best beach in Algarve if you like to experience nature. The surroundings are awsome. Its not really crowded like the neighboring beach Benagil.
