By far one of our favourite beaches of the area …
When the tide is 'right' it's a good place from which to explore the caves along the coast in a small boat (even has a resident boat captain).
Well worth the long walk down all of those stairs (exactly 100 steps). Actually a fairly 'gentle' walk ...

A must if your in the Algarve. Dramatic and stunning coastline. Don't catch a boat. Drive to Marinha and walk the cliff top then head down the stairs to the beach, they gently slope down the cliff so its quite an easy walk. There's a cafe with a limited menu at the bottom so its a nice place to stop for a refreshment.

This is one of my favourite beaches in the Lagoa area, lovely soft sand very pretty cove, quite a few steps down not easy with children and all the paraphernalia but we have done it many times and it is well worth the effort

This is really an amazing beach. It's a bit of a walk down from the cliffs, but totally worth it. Overhanging cliffs, eroded by the sea over time, with a few strangly formed rocks left standing. A cave is leading to another small beach on the left. The views of the coastline are beautiful too.

Lots of camper vans park at this cliff top area, not much else at this location in the way of restaurants or eateries
