There have been many improvements to the centre and sea front with a purpose built viewing area above the beach to allow you to watch the crashing waves and surfers below. Unfortunately the viewing area can only be reached by descending steep stairs. The beach...More

This is a beautiful and nice spot well balanced in all dimensions. Unusual to find anything similar. Not crowded, 2 permanent lifeguards overlooking the children, a bar-restaurant with everything you need, massage and bodyboard rental, surf school, plenty parking. The swell is just perfect and...More

It was hard to find available parking but it was worth a visit. Very good beach to spend time with the kids.

What an unusual beach and town. We arrived in the sprinkling rain, so not much going on. It appeared that in the right weather, this place would be covered with people. However they look prepared to handle it, with pools and cafes and such. Even...More

The beach is next to the town of Zambujeira do Mar. Stand on top of the plaza and the big beach is beneath you with a vast expanse of ocean. It isn't as serene and quiet as others we visited—more tourists and locals but not...More
