Wonderful beach to take a long stroll when tide is out. Water temperature was nice. Miles of shoreline to walk on. A few beach hawkers around but they aren’t too pushy and leave you alone if you say No Obrigado. The wind can be strong...More

In front of the hotel, I did not need much effort to go to and stroll along a very long beach front. Ideal for kitesurfe. Early mornings time for the fisherman try their luck next to the shore.

This is a must go very nice try to get there during low tide that would be my only suggestion is there’s much more to do during low tide. More room to walk around can be busy and a lot of people on the weekend

Nice and ample beach, great for surfing but not so much for little children due to its big waves. There is a great walkway for great walks while watching the surfers ride.
