It’s a great beach, very accessible, open and waves can be really huge at times. And it’s in the centre of Zambujeira.

There have been many improvements to the centre and sea front with a purpose built viewing area above the beach to allow you to watch the crashing waves and surfers below. Unfortunately the viewing area can only be reached by descending steep stairs. The beach...More

This is a beautiful and nice spot well balanced in all dimensions. Unusual to find anything similar. Not crowded, 2 permanent lifeguards overlooking the children, a bar-restaurant with everything you need, massage and bodyboard rental, surf school, plenty parking. The swell is just perfect and...More

Not my favourite, because of the amount of rocks, but very beautiful, from the point of view of Geology. Not so much space for parking, so it is a good idea to park in the village, and then walk. Avoid going during the SW Music...More

Most beautiful place to watch the sunset. For swimming there may be better beaches as it is very rocky. Buy after traveling down the coast of portugal, it was the best place to watch the sunset.

What an unusual beach and town. We arrived in the sprinkling rain, so not much going on. It appeared that in the right weather, this place would be covered with people. However they look prepared to handle it, with pools and cafes and such. Even...More
