I had all 4 BMW wheel centres stolen from my rental car while parked in the parking lot. We were at the beach for an hour or two. Many steps down from the parking lot to the lovely beach.

Pretty and quiet beach very near Zambujeira do Mar. I recomend to go in the low tide hours to enjoy the beach with more space.

Amazing Beach with 2 coves, the first one is more busy, the second one very quiet and ideal for nudism.

Beyond beautiful! The access involves lots of steps but the reward is absolutely amazing! Not too many people and plenty of space for sand castles, small ponds and sand fights. Some naturism, not the majority! Our favourite beach of all!!!

We loved Altarinhos beach, just a few kilometers south from Zambujeira do Mar. The beach is very safe for children when the tide is low.
