Good place for a weekend beach trip in early May?

can anyone advise which the best place to go is for a weekend beach holiday in portugal?

looking to go in the first weekend of May and so also wondering what the weather will be like? i have looked at the average temp sites, but am finding hard to believe it's only going to be 22 degrees.

Looking for a nice beach with some watersports, nice places to eat, nice bars and maybe some sites (not essential)?

Any advice would be great, thanks

Weather is nice and warm in May (22C+), Praia da Rocha has plenty of nice places to eat with food from different parts of the world. At the beach there are plenty of different watersports available. Stunning place strongly recommended!

May is often a lot hotter than 22C (it was 23 here last week) but the weather can still be a little iffy with showers and clouds. You would be lucky to find the beach watersports up and running unless the weather is very good. Many councils don't have the lifeguards out until mid May and without them the watersports are often not permitted.
