We have just returned from a visit to the area. We visited the beach in the afternoon and had it to ourselves. Cafe was closed but not a problem. The beach and landforms are stunning. It's well worth exploring the paths nearby - wild freesias...More

praia marinha is one of the nicest beaches in the algarve area. the scenery is extraordinary and we had a lot of fun there. sometimes the waves are high and it is necessary to take attention because of the currents, which could be very strong....More

We stayed in Carvoeiro, and tried various beaches but this was the best for sure. Amazing scenery, plentiful parking, lovely sand. Highly recommended !

I just passed by but it's very nice, not too small, not too big, nice sand, calm waters, a little spoliled by some nearby "party-boats" with noisy music

Wonderful spectacular coastline. Amazing coast, cliffs and beach. Sea very powerful, huge waves. Cliffs are dangerous, paths not fenced, so be careful. Caves and erosion.

Tranquility. Food at restaurant a small bit pricey, but it's the old location location location. Water is clean, beach was clean

One of the best beaches in the world!! The rocks are amazing and the beach is so clean with such a stunning setting. Sea is so blue.

One of the best beaches in the Algarve, Portugal. Away from any village or town, great for nature and beach photography. But you have to use the long stairs to reach it. One of the Top 100 beaches on Michelin Guide.

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
