Zona numa falésia, que entra pelo mar dentro, com a Capela da Nossa Senhora da Rocha do séc. XVI, a praia da Senhora da Rocha de um lado e a Praia Nova do Outro lado. Com uma vista panorâmica única. Neste lugar já existiu um forte militar que protegia a costa de ataques militares e piratas. Na capela podem-se acender velas a pedir a protecção de Nossa Senhora da Rocha.

Beautiful chapel. There was a wedding at the end of the cliff when we were there. Stunning scenery! Would recommend a visit if you are near.

A good place to watch the sunset feel the air and enjoy from the top the beaches and the cliffs from another perspective!

We brought a picnic here and enjoyed eating it with views of great beaches. We walked along the promontory and lit candles for our loved ones that are no longer with us. Beautiful.

The view is amazing from the church at the cliff top. You will also struggle to find more beautiful beaches in Europe than the ones around here. It is definitely worth walking down to these and dipping your toes in the sea.

We stayed near by and had a little walk up here,it's a quite a steep hill from the beach though, beautiful views of the beaches and a nice little bar near by to get a drink and food.

A fabulous part of the coastline of Portugal. A steep climb down to the beach but well worth it. Not overcrowded at this time of year but I suspect it will get vey busy in the high season.

We were staying at the hotel around the bay, easy to walk too, stunning views, we walked for miles along the cliffs, stunning scenery. Highly recommended if you don't mind heights.
