What makes this beach stand out is the rocks and caves to the east. You can wander to small coves and have them to yourself! The kids find it much more interesting that the big long beaches found elsewhere. There is a restaurant and snack place, and the usual sunbeds for hire. All in all, well worth making the trip.....

If you are looking for a very busy beach this is it......incredible really as no more than 5 mins by car are the most amazing (less busy !) beaches, buy a map..!

you can approach this lovely beach from the carpark by the start of the boardwalk near salgados reserve. It is a huge sandy beach with wide expanses of sand and some spectacular rock formations. There are various cafes, restaurants etc dotted along the fringes of the beach. Fabulous sunsets !!!

Beautiful beach, lovely sand and rock formations, quite and secluded. Get there early whilst the tide is out to see the uncovered rock pools and what lurks within :-)

2 beaches to choose from. 1 small & personal, the other long running with walks for ever.

Pedras Amarelas is a gem & is without doubt our favourite fish restaurant in the area.

Adults & kids alike will find time to spend @ Gale Beach - with a night time 'al-fresco' beach drinks experience worth a look also - enjoy
