Amazing beach resort, perfect for families and couples, no night life like Albufeira but with lovely bars, coffee shops, restaurants and late drink pubs with outside sitting area. Sea is calm and at good temperature and sands cleaned every night.

Perfect sand and sea for bathing , walking or swimming. Boardwalk is a great addition meaning you walk the full length of resort without touching the sand if you want! Yes there is some building work ongoing and we missed most of the construction work...More

Very noisy by the beach with some building works, machinery cutting...something that can be perfectly done when the season is over to avoid disturbing tourists..
