Lovely beach with sand all the way into the sea, no seaweed or broken shells when we visited. No problems parking at 4pm at end of July. Access is via road with lots of single track passing spaces which was easy with a small car.

typical Algarvian beach but with a great feeling about it. Difficult to find, lovely setting, romantic, small yet practical and with a good restaurant to eat and drink. Absolutely amazing at sunset with great colours and a great view of the arch

We visited this beach in March and the scenery is stunning. There were not a lot of people there at the time, most were enjoying the beautiful rocks, cliffs and views. One thing to be mindful of is the time that the high tide comes...More
