We took the little train to Praia do Barril and ate something. Food was nice and nicely priced, not the big touristic prices. The beach is beautiful. Part of the stunning view is that the beach isn't too crowded. Nice place to relax a bit...More

This is an amazing beach on a nature reserve, it is one of the cleanest beaches I have seen. Good for swimming if you stay in the safe area which has lifeguards and is clearly marked. Good selection of cafes and restaurants nearby.

A pleasant sandy beach but sometimes the sea has a strong undercurrent s not always good for swimming. Restaurants a little on the pricey side and not open after 6 or 6.30 pm.
