The water is clean and has a transparent colour. However, the water of the Atlantic Ocean can be very cold in this area. Even so, it can be refreshing to swim here on a hot summer day. Beware that the current on this beach can be strong. Be careful in the water when you are visiting with small children. Also watch out on the eastern end of the beach, since there are some big rocks in the water. It is best to avoid swimming near the rocks. There are no rocks in the water on the western side and in the middle section. The beach can be crowded, especially during the summer months. However, there is always enough space for everyone. Also, the people are not evenly distributed on the beach. The beach has both crowded and quiet areas. The most crowded part is the middle section. The more east or west you go from there, the less crowded it will get. If you prefer to have more privacy on the beach, avoid the middle section. The beach attracts all kinds of visitors, including families with children. The sandy beach is quite popular with kids to build sandcastles and to play in the sand.

Wonderful long open beach & refreshing sea.
Beach taverns do amazing lunches and informal dinner.
Village a bit noisy but several good lively restaurants.

Great beach and great rock formations. Lovely place and very quiet at this time of year. Might be packed in summer though

Beautiful area of amazing coastal rock formations and outstanding beaches. The area can look amazing at sunrise or sunset.
Wear sturdy footwear as the paths can be rocky.

Maybe it was the light when we were there but the go,den sandy beach which stretched a long way towards Lagos was quite special. Such lovely fine sand. Highly recommended!

It was amazing. A train took us there from Pestana blue alvor for free or there was a quick five minute walk over the road on a bridge from our hotel. There was two restaurants and a smaller Pestana hotel on the beach. A little bar and a nice walk down and along the beach. Very nice beach I loved it!

This beach is next to Praia dos Três Irmãos and is bigger and very wide. Is very turistic and massive.

We took the bus here when staying in Do Vau. There are lots of restaurants, shops and bars here serving a while host of different things.

Involved in the rescue of a kite surfer that was getting swept away in the strong winds. The locals didn't seem too bothered but did eventually call an ambulance and the coastguard - after he had been rescued!
