After a long closure O Sargo has newly reopened, O Sargo has a new face, new owner, new chef and entirely new menu and atmosphere/vibe. Not related to its previous incarnation, this restaurant is a fun and unique place on the Vicentina Coast. Great menu and unusually attentive service.

A very picturesque beach with wide areas of clean white sand. There are cliff-top walks ,offering easy walking amongst a wide variety of local flora, beautiful in the spring. There are clean toilets just off the beach and a couple of restaurants/snack bars

Beautiful beach but go when it is not to windy. The currents can be very strong so take care. On the far side of the beach there are nice rocks that protect from the wind!

Lovely beach and great surf. Even in February it was comfortable to paddle in the bubbling surf. Good parking and easy access to the beach.

The beach was easy to get to, we walked from Arrifana and followed a good road all the way down. The cafe at the edge was good, and the beach itself was wide and flat, and gave the option of rocky bits at either end to explore. We have a lovely peaceful 4/5 hours there.

Surrounded by a picturesque (and untidy) fishing village, Monte Clérigo Beach is about 10 kms from the village of Aljezur. It is easy to get there by tarmac road. Access to the beach is made by ramps and stairs. The beach has good dimensions, being mainly sought after by families who find all the infrastructures here: WC, showers, car park,... More

Very nice beach with a few houses on the hill. The beach was very quiet in this time of the year. Liked it a lot. We started to walk the Rota Vicentina over here to Arrifana beach. Very nice and stunning walk!!
