The most popular sandy wide beach and the most commercialised one with the usual facilities. Popular with swimmers too. Nice views of the beach from the castle.

Very popular with Portuguese and all nations. The main beach is a stunning stretch of beach with a marina an sports area at one end. At the top of the cliffs are the main strip which is full of atmosphere at night
