This is a big and beautiful beach. All you can see is nature!! It's possible to learn how to surf over here. There is a beach bar on top. Big parking place.

Simply beautiful! The hiking trail was broken Due to rain. We had to walk around it. Still worth it! By foot or car possible

Fabulous beach, reminded me of Australia, just without the horrendous flight time! Clean water and sand, interesting rocks to investigate, easy to get to, great family beach.

Good beach to learn to surf, although if you're not surfing but diving watch out for the rookies going on your way.. also the lifeguard is addicted to the whistle, you'll hear it many times.

This is a great beach, ideal for surfing, water is freezing as usually in Portugal. Busy beach in August despite its hard location. There are 3 surfing schools where you can have a entry level surfing lesson from 35€, highly recommended! Reading trip advisor reviews...More
