Worth a day trip for the beach - but that`s about it. The beach is large and lovely with a boardwalk along the restaurants.

The town/strip itself looks a bit worse for wear, run down, cheap shops etc.

The east end of the strip is a lot quieter and in better condition.

Ok for a day trip but would not want to spend a week here.

We were on a trip and visited praia Da Rocha a beautiful clean beach with several beach bars/ cafes along a wooden walk way, the way we went down to the beach was very steep not good for people with mobility problems but that said there could be easier ways down but we didn't go to far as we only had an hour there, worth a visit as such a beautiful beach

Just a stunning place that you can easily spend all day there. The water was perfect and there are loads of cafes along the strand
