Great scenery, golden sand and a deep blue sea, making Odeceixe beach a jewell in a coast filled with hidden treasures

“A great beach but visit the old village too!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

To be exact, there are two sides to Odeceixe: the old village a few miles inland by the river and the seaside part.
Much has already been said about this beautiful beach set between cliffs and at the mouth of a river. It is a paradise for both beach goers and surfers. There is a nice café with a terrace, which offers a panoramic view of the beach. But the area above the cliffs is worth exploring too as there are great scenic views on the rocks and the cliffs. Since this area is also part of a national park, the vegetation is particularly interesting and all in bloom at spring time.
However, the old village of Odeceixe a few miles away from the coast, on the main road, is also worth a visit. It is an old white village from the Algarve, complete with steep cobbled streets, colorful houses, a church and windmills on the top of the hill. Definitively one of the most scenic little town in the area.

“Lovely beach nice to visit”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

We visited here to watch the sea very pretty water was very rough great for surfing. Calm river for the kids to paddle. We found a dead dolphin which upset the kids but it was moved not long after. Down side very steep walk down and up to car. Only let down was food took agers to be served and was not that great but still well worth the trip.
