Went in August, but changed to the river side beach due to rocky beach entrance & dirty water bringing all type of sea weeds on the beach. Got to be wearing shoes when entering the water due to the rocks.

This beach is great but it has very bad access by car! The road cannot be done properly because the beach is on a protected area! Anyway, the beach is great and has a lot of parking places!

If you walk north you'll find the nude beach (in the second cove). It's very peaceful and relaxing. The only downside is the dirt track getting to the beach as it's bumpy on your car.

Das melhores na zona e a nivel nacional. One of the best in the country. Good for surf, walk or simply rest. Isolated from restaurants and bars but nice acessibilities.
