A beautiful beach, but when busy parking is a nightmare and it is a long walk down to the beach, the path is well maintained but you wouldn't want to forget something in your car, its a long way back. In the height of summer...More

Breathtaking beach. I had my own SUP board, so I just went into the water and decided to start discovering the caves nearby. Its much better to go to this beach if you have a SUP board and then reach the famous cave on praia...More

Love this beach. Absolutely gorgeous. Water was still too cold to go in, but still worth the dip. Small restaurant serves good snacks, but only accepts cash, so come prepared.

The Beach is sandy & endless, the water is amazing, with brilliant color & impressive waves. Watch the waves or they can quickly come in over you & you will be up to your knees in waters—ask my wife ! Pretty amazing landscape!

This small beach is truly breathtaking. A MUST-do if you are in the area. Parking is free but a bit hectic along the access road which narrows to one lane when people park on both sides. We had to reverse a while to let a...More

The sun nudged us awake, hurry up and let’s go walk the Algarve coast of Portugal! The coastal cliffs have been eroding about 16-24 million years, give or take. The artistry of rain and waves have sculpted the most dramatic beauty full of sea caves...More
