This is a great beach for families. It's a larger beach and has a restaurant and bathroom facility on the beach. We found plenty of parking and it's easy to walk to down to with well kept and built stairs.

A nice secluded beach, but second to Praia de Albandeira which is a 15 min walk away! Stay away from the restaurant on the beach. The smell will surely put you off.

This is a spectacular picture postcard coast line and this beach is one of the best spots. This was only a short drive from our villa with ample Cliff top parking and a stepped path down to the beach. The steps would not be suitable for elderly people as they might find the climb back up too much.

It is very clean soft sand, so ideal for children to play in to make sand castles and sculptures. The sea looks inviting but a paddle was enough for me as the Atlantic is very cold but it didn't seem to bother the locals. I'll be returning to the beach again this year and plan to take advantage of the boat trips this time.

This place is in a stunning spot. Secluded from the town areas. There is a couple of car parks at the top of the cliff. Getting to the beach isn't so bad as there is a path that has been carved out of the rock so not really many steps. There is a cafe / bar at the bottom and you can hire a umbrella for €5 for the day.

If you want to catch the rays and chill, this is is the place

Stunning beach, only negative are all the steps to get down to it, but definitely worth it once you are there.
Boat trips available for the caves, well worth it
