Crazy hike as we didnt know what to expect! I read somewhere that the beach was amazing, but I didnt find it to be that way. Its full of boulders and people, almost no place to sit. No shade, freezing cold water and definitely no...More

The Algarve is great, but I thought this to be the most beautiful beach in country as it was completely empty when we were there (an impossible thing in the Algarve). Hard to reach yet a beautiful reward once there. This beach is really nice,...More

Amazing beach, Yes its a bit of a climb down but people with young toddlers were doing the hike with relative ease. Unless you have a real mobility issue this should not be a big problem. The beach itself was stunning the views were great....More
