This beach is amazing, and very close to perfection, if not perfect! Amazing for surf (at all levels), good for family and kids, and very safe. The parking on top is not so big, and during Summer season, and extremely hot days, will be difficult...More

This beach is one of the best for beginner surfers. It's almost always crowded, but in exchange there are almost always good waves to ride, all day long.

Well know beach with many restaurants and sightseeing spots around. For our taste a little bit too commercial and full.

This is a real surfers beach. It's a long way down but it's worth the trip. It's the best to park on top of the cliff.

A quick trip to Aljezur and stop at this great location! What a wonderful view and a foaming sea. All the steep cliffs create a stunning view of what's not found elsewhere! If you ever get here, take a moment and look the nature!
