“A good beach but not cared for....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

This is a beach outside the city, not far from the airport. Nice view of the waves coming in... a good walk on the beach... but the beach itself is not well cared for, not clean... lot of debris... plus the sea is very rough... it is not a calm, inviting sea... better stick to one of the hotels' swimming pool....

“Spoiled being from Australia but it is a nice beach.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

We were a little dissapointed with Stella Maris beach. It took us a good 30/45 min to get there by cab. It wasn't as sheltered as hoped and crowded on either side although you able to find some quiet spots. Not much shade and (compared to Australian beaches) relatively dirty and littered. Water was nice temperature and opportunity to have drink/food at various beach front pubs. Pressed for time we ended up here otherwise would have gone further up North to Praia do Forte.

“Nice relaxing day on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

The beach is very nice and quiet (except for sunday) with several bars where you can sit and relax enjoyning the sun and the breeze from the ocean.
