Every where over priced for what you get bars and restaurants not so good and too expensive for what the place is . Nice beach but that’s all .

Amazing beach resort, perfect for families and couples, no night life like Albufeira but with lovely bars, coffee shops, restaurants and late drink pubs with outside sitting area. Sea is calm and at good temperature and sands cleaned every night.

Very noisy by the beach with some building works, machinery cutting...something that can be perfectly done when the season is over to avoid disturbing tourists..

Sunbeds and umbrellas are organised in sections along the beach and they are in fixed places. I think around 10 to 12 Euros for sunbed and umbrella. I went in August and didn't mind the breeze. I bought a beach umbrella from... More
