Bordeira is my favorite beach for now. I stayed until night tonight under the stars and a moon on the way to be full soon..there is really a good energy on this beach.

This is a stunning beach. It's very large. It's so nice to spend some time over here. You can park at the bottom of the cliff or on top. You have to walk trough water to reach the sand. Just lie down and relax!!

A winding drive from the highway finally gets you to this gorgeous beach. Theviews in every direction are stunning the parking area was a bit rough due to the recent rains.

This was my first experience of the Portuguese west-facing Atlantic coast, and it totally blew me away. A vast expanse of sand, good access (not sure where some get the idea it is not suitable for the elderly.. I'm 70), and, out of season, good...More

Took my breath away! Large sandy beach. Guarded by the way. Pleanty of space. Strong waves, but it is even more fun to enjoy the ocean! Surfers love this beach. If you stop as soon as you see first cars parked, you’ll need to walk...More

this beach is probably one of the most beautiful natural beaches in the world! Absolutely visit, not necessarily a bathing beach, but good to walk!

Large sandy beach bordered by large cliffs. Surf paradise. Nice bar where you can rent beach sunbathing or sport equipment

This is an enormous expanse of sand for southern European standards. The main attraction is surfing, but swimming and sunbathing are also an option especially in high tides when the channel gets filled with water. Some nice cliff walks too. And wonderful views.

Great beach for surfing. Very long and hard access, unsuitable beach for elderly or disable people. There is a bar on the beach.

Yes dogs are allowed but you should try to walk away from the beginning of the beach where everyone normally stays. The beach is extensive with plenty of space for you to walk the dog and sit and sunbathe away from everyone... More
