Trafal is actually next to Vale de lobo. But hey! They all run into one long stretch next to each other. This is as good as any other beach stretching from Faril to Vilamoura. Just be warned though if you have toddlers when the tide...More

Excellent long stretch of sandy beach and glorious walks with various places to stop off and try a delicious meal at a number of very good beach restaurants. Well worth a visit.

Worth the long dusty drive down to this beach. Great to spend the day at. The beach has a restaurant called Temprus which is very good,but it is best to book to avoid not being able to a table. Plenty of parking.
