“Great beach”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Great beach, stunning views but no facilities( the restaurant facilities are run down and closed) - as long as you take your own food and drink, you only really have to worry about toilet facilities as there are 't any close by other than the nearby hotel.

Reviewed 6 April 2014

Secluded and fairly unspoilt. Ideal for families and those wanting to relax. If in the area worth a visit.

“Unspoilt Beauty”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

If you are looking for a quiet lay in the sun, this is the place for you.5 mins by car from Albufeira Old Town or a 15 min stroll from Albufeira Marina. It is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever visited, cant wait to return.
